Cool, quirky and boasting bucketloads of charm, Falcon is among the best pubs in Clapham. Head on over to enjoy a bustling atmosphere, as well as gorgeous interiors and all kinds of scrumptious British grub, from fish and chips to chicken and mushroom pie.

The Northcote

It's probably easier to find something the Northcote doesn't do. A top drawer boozer serving a great selection of ales, ciders and wines as well as hearty fare in an abundance, it's pretty easy to see why such a lively crowd stop in. There's all sorts of entertainment going on too, with their raucous quiz nights worth checking it out and all the big sporting action broadcast live.

The Goat

A plush pub in the heart of Clapham, The Goat is fronting chic interiors and tasty grub. Head over to the Battersea Rise boozer and spend an evening sipping on fresh pints and fine wines in their gorgeous bar and dining room area.


The Merchant of Battersea is a wonderful pub just a short walk from Clapham Junction. It has a modern yet industrial-style interior with an array of tables paired with orange leather chairs, plus a large screen in every room to catch the latest game. On the menu? Some delicious comfort food like burgers and hot dogs, plus loaded sandwiches with slow-cooked pork.
