The beer, the food, the service, the atmosphere and more so the bill! I met a friend from America, he had read Remember the Fifth of November by Michael Fitzalan and was raving about it. I modestly enjoyed the praise for the book. We had to draught beers in excellent condition and the sharing meze all for under forty quid.... More

This is a nice place to go - perhaps the nicest on the street. The selection of beers is to be admired (and sampled) and the staff understands the wares they sell. Nice place. Good drink. Food a bit obvious.

I'd read about this place beforehand and decided to give it a try as I was staying nearby. It was pretty busy but I managed to secure a seat outside. The selection of beers/lagers is impressive, at a price of course (but maybe not for London, I guess). I spent an agreeable hour with my 2 pints of Austrian pilsner.... More

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.
