We're often in Coulsdon, visiting family, and have eaten at The Pembroke countless times. Generally, the food is average; nothing special, but tasty and filled a gap. Today's experience makes me wonder if I'll bother again. I ordered a vegetarian wrap: grilled halloumi, tomato and...More

Been here a few times,as tittle says hit & miss, ok for a drink with a very good selection of beers.Sadly food ranges from good for the money to bland,lukewarm chewy rubbish,which my roast beef defiantly was.Definatly a place to drink but not eat.

Nice little pub for a decent quiet beer while watching the football. Good selection of bottled beers. Draughts are the usual pub selection.

The Pembroke is what you expect in a town with only one pub. Decent beer selection but bought in food (the kitchen knows how to reheat, deep fry and microwave, that's about it). However, the staff are very variable and there's never enough of them....More

A big, soulless pub, with a decent selection of beers. When we visited, just after 1 o'clock on a weekday afternoon, there was a fair amount of debris uncleared around the dining tables. Our food was served promptly, but the kindest description I could give...More
