South West is best and our friendly neighbourhood pub isn’t afraid to celebrate it! So enjoy the sport, dance to the music, sip on the cocktails and make us your home from home. Nestled between the hustle and bustle of Clapham Junction and the tranquillity of the Common, we are a friendly local for a wide and varied community and that’s the way we like it. We’ve something different every night of the week, showing the best fixtures, serving the best food and hosting the best bands. Why would you go anywhere else?

    Good for watching sport. Ridiculously noisy, can barely hear person next to you. No soft furnishings to dampen the sound.

    Awful. No service on arrival Basically a pub with lots of people drinking. Food and service not a priority. I had to leave because of the noise

    Great atmosphere for 6nations! Booked a table for 10 and the screen and vibes were great. A bit of a wait at the bar, but absolutely expected when there’s a big crowd, pints were reasonable price too!

    Very limited menu - pizzas or burgers. Also had live music right next to the table which wasn’t ideal. He was a great singer, we just couldn’t hear ourselves at all. Service wasn’t great. Said we didn’t order chips when we had, so we ordered more, then original chips arrived 2 minutes before the “new” order of chips did so we ended up paying 2x for them. Ended up going 2 doors up to brewdog for beers and a chat.
