I've become a regular visitor to draft house as they have vast selection of beers, staff are nice & always willing to help with the choice of your beverage. Will try the food next time as well. Never too busy, 5 minutes walk from Clapham Junction.

Amazing food, great location, great staff, massive selection of beers/ales - what more could you want? Prices were excellent on food, beers are exotic so a little dearer maybe but well worth it! Enjoy

I have walked place this place a lot of times and never gone in. I thought it was about time. Popped in late on a Friday night. Good had finished and the bar was thinning out. Friendly bar staff, good beer. Atmosphere was lacking for a Friday night. Good place for a pong if you're passing.

Beer selection is fantastic! The food is great; I highly recommend the chili-cheese fries. Service is consistently great, every one being very friendly.

A good bar with good choice of beer and good snacking menu. One of the better bars in the northcote road. The only frustrating thing is that no matter who is working the bar staff are incredibly slow at taking an order. I know beer takes time to poor but I actually walked out on Friday night beerless. They need... More

Recently stopped by The Draft House for the first time with my partner for a few beers and a mid-afternoon snack. Nice atmosphere, excellent range of beers and well priced and tasty food (we had the German sausage platter - awesome!). We'll definitely stop by again when we're in the area.

It's a pleasant enough place but don't expect a fine beer drinking expereince. There is little to demonstrate that they really know what they're on about and one glass we had here was decidedley rank. If you live in the area you probably like this place,if you don't, don't expect the journey to be worth it (unless you work in... More

Good selection and a nice atmosphere. We have always been just before closing so been calm. Planning on going again soon and try one of the other ones.

I enjoyed the atmosphere of this bar. The let down was the staff, they weren't very friendly and didn't really seem that interested in helping us choose beers. It seemed like it was too much effort. They were knowledgeable on the beers but not very helpful, especially the Irish guy there. The food was OK, nothing special. Most dissapointing than... More

I enjoy this bar. Good selection of beers and wines, staff are nice and the food is really good. The bar is an odd shape which makes it difficult if you can't get a seat (which is quite often as the area is getting really busy with the College expanding) but thats a minor concern. Please visit, you will enjoy.... More
