Bars and pubs in Clapham

Where to head when you’ve got a thirst on in south-west London



Add +

Clapham may be more laid back than other parts of London, but that doesn't mean it's sleepy. Loft is a refined bar with inventive cocktails - often including their homemade grenadine. Venn Street Records has a nice selection of beers and cocktails and a cheeky, rock 'n' roll interior. Bread & Roses is named after a poem about a workers' strike, but the punters come for the excellent beers and wines, rather than the impressive history.

Bread & Roses

This Workers Beer Company-run pub is proud to sport its socialist credentials, it takes its name from a James Oppenheim poem associated with a textile strike.

  • Rated as: 4/5

In a quiet residential street not far from Clapham Common, Bobbin is an appealing neighbourhood gastropub. It has a changing rota of proper ales and an airy conservatory at the rear.

Kings Head

Another perfectly good neighbourhood bar converted into a dining pub, The King's Head - known as Grey Goose before its owners changed to Antic in 2011 - reverts happily to its former guise.
