Come for the spacious beer garden, stay for the fresh decor and delicious grub. The Castle may be one of Tooting’s oldest pubs, but this place is nothing but modern. 38 Tooting High Street, SW17 0RG

Rose and Crown

One of the underdogs, this is an old-school gem for those who are determined to fight the good fight against Tooting’s rapid gentrification. Full of friendly locals who can’t get enough of their karaoke nights, this buzzing neighbourhood bar has its own Elvis impersonator and even hosts regular Psychic Nights. I mean, how could you not? 140 Tooting Bec Rd, SW17 8BH
