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

Was it not the V&A which once advertised itself as being a nice caff with a museum attached? I feel the same way about The Draft House, the second outpost of a chain which has spread from its South a London base with its first branch in Battersea Bridge Road to Dulwich (although there are rumours this is shortly to...

Fantastic range of beers. Got to be one of the best in London both on draft and bottled. We had burger and superb chips with beans, good sized portion for two, and as for the onion rings, maybe the best i've ever had.....this is a 'must go to' pub....

This is a very nice place for people who like very good craft beer. Staff is knowledgeable and very helpful. Unfortunately I went there for dinner but they didn't serve food on Mondays. Other than that, if you like good beer, this is your place.
