Are there any good pubs in Wandsworth?

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 Wandsworth. As a matter of fact, we didn’t… But we would have loved to. Here is then the list of the greatest pubs of Wandsworth

Pub name Name Address Description
Country House 2-4 Groton Road Earlsfield SW18 4EP Unspoilt basic backstreet boozer with very friendly mixed clientele, listed on CAMRA London Regional Inventory. Separate public bar, lounge, and small room containing a dartboard. Well worth seeking out, away from the horde of trendy cocktail/foody bars now swamping Earlsfield. Name reverted to Country House following demise of Jack Beard’s but always known as the Fog, supposedly because homeward-bound rail commuters said they had been delayed by the atmospheric condition rather than being detained in this friendly establishment. Pleasantly refurbished in August 2017. It has two regular cask beers, and up to three other cask beers usually from local breweries. Food is not served, but customers are permitted to bring in their own food.
Earlsfield 511 Garratt Lane Earlsfield SW18 4SW Gastropub opened in September 2014 in former shop premises on the site of Earlsfield Station’s original ticket office. The main bar area leads on to two dining areas, one in the railway arch to the right of the main entrance and the other in the conservatory to the rear. The mezzanine area upstairs overlooks the main bar and can be booked for private functions. There is a good selection of bottled and keg beers as well as a mix of traditional and modern cocktails and a varied wine list. TV sport is dominated by Rugby on Saturdays but other sports may be shown at other times if requested, possibly with the sound muted.
Halfway House 521 Garratt Lane Earlsfield SW18 4SR Lively modern corner pub, now popular with a young crowd after recent refurbishment but strictly over 21s after 6pm. Good food and extensive wine list. Comfortable, covered garden area perfect for smokers.
Jolly Gardeners 214 Garratt Lane Earlsfield SW18 4EA A pub with a traditional feel, the U-shaped bar featuring bare floorboards, old photographs of the area (including a large one of the pub) and retro neon signs (some in the windows). There is a conservatory restaurant to the rear. Real ale was reinstated in 2012. Wimbledon Common and Copper Leaf rotate as at December 2023, with a 10% discount for card-carrying CAMRA members now on offer.
Wandle 332 Garratt Lane Earlsfield SW18 4EJ Used to be the Sailor Prince, named after William IV, and then a Puzzle chain pub. Relaunched in 2010, a roomy, open-plan corner pub with huge covered rear patio garden. Can be very busy, especially for TV sports. Pool, table tennis and table football.
