Located in Clapham South in London, this is a romantic and truly heart-warming gastro pub. There are several amazing ways to spend a weekend in London but visiting this pub should be on your list. The restaurant’s decoration is a collection of 16th century paintings and mismatched wooden chairs and tables. The comfort-food menu and the crackling open fire are two of the best things to look forward to during the winter months. During the summer, many people prefer sitting in the sunny and picturesque courtyard.
The pub is magnificent for sport lovers as games are shown on both the 46-inch HD TV screen and the 88-inch projector screen in the dining room. The pub is fairly popular so you should consider booking if you’d love to sit close to the screens.
