O’Neill’s Clapham

17 user reviews 4

Clapham Irish pubs don't get much better than O'Neill's, which is found on the high street. Venture inside for friendly vibes, bottomless pizza brunches, pints of Guinness, gourmet burgers and classic British grub to boot.

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 Northcote

Free round of Guinness when you dine with us

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.

St John’s Tavern

13 user reviews 5

If you like bottomless pizza, £1 wings and cheap pints of craft beer, then St John's Tavern is one of the best pubs in Clapham. They're serving from their 20 taps until late on weekends, with live music and brewery takeovers to boot.

The Rectory

76 user reviews 4

Situated just a stone's throw away from Clapham Common, The Rectory has a great selection of beers and wines and serves up a number of delicious British classics alongside thin and crispy stone-baked pizzas. If that's not enough, they also host weekly quiz nights and live music every Friday.
