Public houses of Clapham

As Londoners, at Cozee we are deeply attached to our weekly attendance to our local pub. Why should you be different in the place where you are going to live? That is why we have been testing and reviewing all the pubs in Clapham. As a matter of fact, we didn’t… But we would have loved to. Here is then the list of the greatest pubs of Clapham

Pub name Name Address Description
Duchess Belle 101 Battersea Park Road Battersea SW8 4DS Part of a small pub chain that also includes the Griffin Belle in nearby Vauxhall, this lively, Victorian street-corner local was refurbished in 2018 after a chequered history. There is plastic foliage and flowers abounding, red leather bench seating, and an array of TV screens showing sport. The view of Sir Giles Gilbert Scott’s iconic Battersea Power Station is now partly obscured by the high-end flats built around the site. There is an upstairs function room with balcony, an outside drinking area at the front, and an attractive walled, decked garden to the rear. Open for breakfast from 7.30 am on weekdays (8.30 Saturday).
Mason’s Arms 169 Battersea Park Road Battersea SW8 4BT Reopened in 2019 after an extensive refurbishment and facelift, this stripped-back and opened-out Fuller’s pub is almost opposite Battersea Park station and attracts a fairly young clientele. The bar has 23 draught lines (20 keg and three cask), with the wide choice of beers extending to bottles and cans. There is attractive floor tiling and glazed brickwork around the bar, and a patio (heated in colder weather) to the side. Information boards on a rear wall explain a range of brewing terms. Quiz night Sunday (6pm). Free treats for dogs. Expect to pay around £6 for a pint.
Mondo Tap House 86 Stewarts Road Battersea SW8 4UG Opened in 2015, this simply-furnished, brick-walled brewery tap offers a range of keg and canned Mondo beers, in styles from around the world. The modern brewery is visible through a window and glass doors. Cashless payment only. Cask-conditioned beer is occasionally available.
Nine Elms Tavern Block D, Riverlight Quay, Nine Elms Lane Nine Elms SW8 5BP Smart, Thames-side Young’s pub opened in 2015 as part of the extensive Nine Elms development between Battersea Power Station and Vauxhall, near the US Embassy. A bright, modern, split-level bar, with a nautical theme and much timbering, it is on the ground floor of an apartment block. Glass walls allow views of the river. The outside terrace is popular. Quiz night Sunday. Riverlight Quay bus stop (services 156 and 344) is nearby.

Galleries and Museums
