Craft Tooting (Beer Store)
“Located in Broadway Market (not to be confused with We Brought Beer, which is in Tooting Market). Three taps, and about 100 cans and bottles. Fast rotation of most stock, although sometimes things seem to hang around. Usual London suspects, and a fair few 'hype' breweries (Deya, Verdant, Northern Monk, etc.). Keg beers are usually fairly sessionable stuff and always include one lager. Prices are fairly consistent with what's around, and they charge roughly £1-2 more to drink in. It's a tiny spot, but they do have a small table inside and roughly four benches outside, in the market. It can sometimes be a bit of an issue getting into the place, particularly on weekend evenings. Staff are very friendly, and generally very knowledgable about what's in stock.“

“This is a nice English pub with an upscale feel, similar to The Wheatsheaf up the road. About 8 taps available of local craft brews. Food is quite good and it's a popular dining spot.“

“A dive pub across from Tooting Broadway, I was warned to stay away from all the old people and chavs itching for a fight. It ain't that bad but it's your usual council house crowd staring at the footy and playing the lotto machines. Very little on tap you can't find somewhere else but they did have a few craft brews for a bargain 2.29 to try so that was one small shining light. The tube station is right there though, so go somewhere more interesting.“

“Walked into this place and it felt rather sleazy, a few foosball tables and a minimal selection of craft beers when I visited. Didn't feel like an inviting beer destination at all, dark and little you couldn't find somewhere else.“

“A slick interior, clean and inviting, good food available and about a dozen taps of local stuff. A good choice for the area for some pints or bites, or a few local ticks.“

“Okay pub with your usual English ambiance of dark wood and high ceilings. About a half dozen craft beers on tap from local breweries. Decent service. Okay stop in the area but nothing you can't find elsewhere.“

“A decent Antic pub with about 8 casks and a few crafts kegs. There’s likely to be something of interest among them. Definitely worth a look. Need to go back to do a more thorough review as my notes were extremely scant.“

“Spacious pub in Tooting. Two casks, three lagers and some bottles from the likes of Brixton. Food not bad. Decent enough if in the area, nice pub, but not a beer destination in the wider London context.“

“Really good looking and nice pub. A lot of open space here and comfortable seating. Clean and modern in an old fashion style. Clean nice toilets! Good food! Did not check out the bottle selection, but they had an ok range of cask ales. Some interesting smaller breweries. They did also have some board games. “

“Not the most fancy place in The World. Did not expect that either. Just had some beer after a Greyhound race. Some decent ale on handpull, and some ok bottles. Ok service and quite clean toilets.“

Antelope (Bar)
“An attractive, large, open plan pub that feels Victorian with its etched glass and wood panelled walls, but it may have been converted from another use (possibly a school?). It has eight hand pumps and about ten keg taps with a good selection of beers. It’s light, airy and comfortable. There are squashy sofas as well as more traditional tables and chairs in the front part. At the back, Victorian pub meets hunting lodge as you go through into a vast library-like dining room with another large room (which seemed to be full of children) off it, just up some steps. There’s also a pleasant patio outside at the back. I liked it a lot - well worth a visit. (Visited 17 May 2014).“

“Oh yeah, this is a nice and squalid Spoonies. Get your pint here for about two quid or so and watch the other miserable drinkers pissing away the hours. I had a half pint here after getting out of the Tube before making my way to By The Horns, which isn’t that far away (although you might want to bus it). There are some decent beers here on cask as you would expect from any JDW. And the value is good since you’re starting to get outside the city citre. It’s a JDW outlet and a low-brow one at that. You know what you’re getting.“

“Set in the bustling crossroads and commercial center of Tooting, opposite the Broadway tube station, this doesn’t have a huge front to it (so it is a good job it is an abbreviated name or the sign would not fit!), but it does extend back to almost give ample seating. It can be busy throughout the day given its location and the first pub you see if you are emerging from the underground. Inside it is wood paneling throughout and furniture to match. There’s not a great deal of room but along with the carpet it does make for a cosy feel to it. Ale is served over two pumps on a smallish bar as you enter.“

“Traditional three-room pub 5 minutes’ walk from Tooting Broadway. Woodpanelling throughout, traditionally lit comfortable and spacious. Seven hand pumps and five keg taps dispense a changing range of ales and keg beers. I enjoyed Adnams Lighthouse and Nethergate Truman Runner. Friendly staff at the bar, mixed clientele and background music that is JUST THAT. Food is excellent - yes you can eat cheaper elsewhere but you get what you pay for. My visit of 28th May 2011 was on GBG recommendation, and the book appears to have got it right!“
