My boyfriend took me there as it's one of his favourite pubs in Clapham. Apparently it has been newly refurbished and it does not look like the photos on here any more (I'm afraid I was a bit drunk so I didn't take any myself) but the inside is pretty much all black with red tone lighting. The atmosphere reminded me more of Camden if I'm honest.

On a Tuesday night it was half empty so there...more

Always good for both some satisfying comfort fare or a cracking pint after work! The crowd is as diverse as their great selection of drinks. Conveniently located right next to Clapham North and the Overground station.more

The Railway serves its purpose: a typical public house where people can gather after a long day and relax together.

It's at a prime location right next to the Overground stop, which makes it all the more enticing.

There were actually a lot of taps dedicated to solid American craft brews, which surprised me. But of course you're going to pay a premium price for them.more

Cool vibe with dark wooden interiors. Hubby and I both had pints of beer with some interesting hummus dish (sweet potato and coriander).

The servers were friendly as well as the bar staff, which hasn't been super great at other places, so this is a thumbs up for a neighborhood pub to hang out at.

PS though watch out for creepy french dudes who sit by themselves and try to talk to you.more

The nice thing about this bar, is there is plenty of seating, I've been here a few times during the week, and it's always been a pleasent atmosphere.

But... I do have to moan, when i'm spending nearly £5 for a glass of wine when i'm sure they only paid £2 for the entire bottle... please don't measure the quantity. I'm sure it might even work better to my favour as I might get less without...more
