Pubs in Peckham and South London

Proper. London. Boozers.

A Peckham pub is the place you imagine when you think of a great London boozer: some old boy propping up the bar, definitely a copy or two of the Racing Post on adjacent tables, great beer and a stella atmosphere. And who could want anything more from a pub than that?

What about beef carpaccio with warm olive bread and caper berries?

Sling yer 'ook!!

It is all about beers at The Priory. Emphasis is placed on mircobrews, real ales and exotic continental labels and it seems to do the trick of attracting a wide variety of aficionados to Stockwell.

Located in an arch below Peckham Rye Station, Bar Story is another unusual south London venue. Lively, friendly and industrial, the bar is popular for its cheap cocktails (2 for £7 from 6pm – 7pm daily) and local appeal. The sometime BBQ in the yard at the front is another reward for discovering this hard to find bar.

The sister pub of Waterloo’s Anchor and Hope, The Canton Arms is another South London pub that is as good for its ale as it is for its food. The cosy pub is great for long leisurely lunches where the meat is matched by the real ale.

Clapham may not be the hippest place in London but its Old Town area is one of our favourite neighbourhoods. And that is largely thanks to The Sun. Great beers on draught, a lively atmosphere and a well-maintained beer garden are the key to its success.

Pub, restaurant, live music venue and cinema rolled into one, The Montpellier is one of Peckham’s hottest prospects. Add the backroom cinema, which screens new films on a professional quality projector, and you won’t even need the bargain Peckham Plex anymore.

As stylish a pub as you’re likely to find anywhere in London, The Garrison has an irresistible sheen of chic about it. The food is modern European, drinks are all continental wheat beers and microbrewery tipples and there’s even a cinema room in the basement. Bermondsey’s finest.

Once headquarters of the local Conservative Party the Effra Social Club, between Brixton and Herne Hill, has replaced the fustiness (it was probably fusty) with fun. Quiz nights, live music, DJs, book groups and comedy share the retro space making sure there is always something going on.

Very much a local pub, The Brick Layers Arms in Putney is a southern gem. With a ceaseless ale festival throughout the year it is no surprise that it is a favourite of CAMRA’s. Great for ale and old fashioned pub fans.

After taking over a dilapidated old building, Catford Constitutional Club was launched. Not much changed in the handover so now you’ll find an old social club with all its original fittings with the addition of a lively events calendar and a great local drinks selection.
