Visited here several times now. Nice interior - decorated glass, dark wood furniture. Very busy in the evenings, but you can get a seat around the back, decent cask selection. Good pub.

Traditional pub 2 mins from Clapham Junction, that really feels like one of those inbetween places. Itís probably been here for decades, but most of the punters are commuters passing through. Nicholson Pub with a bigger range than most. Has about 12 on cask and then standard boring lager selection. Night I was in it had Sambrooks Junction, Elland Top of the Hops, Nicholsonís Pale Ale, London Pride, SA Brains, and several other regionals. Beer quality was decent. Itís a huge old place and on a Monday night felt a bit depressing, although itís heaving later in the week. Good place to stop if youíre passing through, and very decent range of beers.

A nice, traditional pub almost opposite the old Arding and Hobbs department store and close to Clapham Junction station. It has a lot of character, having retained some impressive stained and etched glass as well as original wood panelling in the various little rooms and cubicles around the large central bar. It can get rather busy so you may find itís vertical drinking only but there are lots of places to stand, including alongside shelves built into the panelling for that very purpose. The beer range was pretty good when I visited. It was just prior to one of their festivals and the service was friendly but slightly chaotic as the staff had no clue as to what was on or which taps were which. (Visited 30 October 2013).

An above-average Nicholsonís pub, very convenient for Clapham Junction station. About 10-12 interesting real ales on, plus a smattering of decent bottles. Well worth a visit if youíre in the area.

Visited at 9.30pm on Thursday 25th October. Traditional Victorian boozer with a long bar that vanishes around the corner. One of the friendly locals I was chatting to said it was once the longest bar in Europe ! (could be local folklore methinks but it is certainly impressive but is now sadly broken with a permanent gap!). Nicholsons had a festival on (presumably to coincide with JDW) so there were a good 14 or 15 cask ales available. Got to admit I didnít take too much notice as I had 10 or so minutes for my train and rated a quick half of Kelburn Cart Noir. I wouldnít reccomend anyone heading out here as a destination venue but if you are passing through CLJ or changing trains, well worth dropping in as itís literally a minutes walk from the station entrance.

Big Nicholsons pub, very handy for Clapham Junction station. Victorian architecture with lots of wood and some stained glass. 16 handpumps plus the usual lager taps. Although the beers will mainly come from the Nicholsons seasonal list (which isnít bad), they do seem to have some leeway to depart from that. Didnít really look at the bottles. Also hold a few beer festivals a year. Can get packed at weekends (hence Iíve knocked down the ambience score a little). Maybe not a destination in itself but certainly worth a look if you are in the area. Donít make the mistake of accidentally walking into the Slug & Lettuce, which is right next door.
