Now The Phoenix (The Circle burnt down in 2011, you see what they’ve done here). Only re-opened quite recently, and gives the impression that it is still trying to work out who it is trying to appeal to, and so doesn’t have any defining characteristics. Reasonably smart décor, small but decent selection of lagers and ales (including Staropramen, Estrella, Doom), lots of bottles of spirits, Sky Sports and a reasonably priced and varied menu.

Strange-looking building; single storey along the main frontage, but a much taller section further back which houses a function room. The bar itself is rather dark and characterless in a semi-modernised way, but there is a side area which is a bit more appealing. Badly let down by not having a single real ale so had to do with a pint of overpriced cider. However, the "secret" (as it tells you on the signs outside) beer garden isn't a bad spot, and there is also a Thai food menu.

I'm Stewart the manager of the Circlebar, Thanks for your comments as you said yourself it takes time to build up a place, I have been here 4 months and I agree with you but we are getting there, I apologise if you have had bad experiences in the past at the Circle Bar. The problem you highlighted re: the mice is non existent and we have a good pest control company in place. Please come down and experience our atmosphere any time it is slowly improving. I don't want the bar to be like the ones up the high-street We are at the end of the day a good local. I want it to be a comfortable pub/bar that people enjoy going to, that throws a good night every now and again.

Well said claphmmom. i totally agree with your original posting. Gills -if people are to be critised for posting their own opinions on here then that surely defeats the object of this website. also if someone wants to review 8 bars in 30 mins thats their choice, or do we have to abide by certain rules as to when we can and cannot review a pub?
In terms of the bar itself its ok, not great but certainly not poor. however there are better options for a night out up the road.

However and when ever I choose to post on this site is irrelevant, I am a new member and chose to review some bars I could think of at the time, like alot of people on here have done if you go and look at their profiles. That doesnt equate to a sad life at all. I could also say there are first time posters on here making claims its the best place in Clapham....I see that as an honest opinion but I dont attack them like yourself gills.

The fact I chose to review a bar, which is what this site is for, and give some honest facts is whats important, I could go and say that your life is sad that you feel the need to stand up for this place and think all reviews that are bad are not important. So you didnt see mice, like they are meant to come out and introduce themselves???

I used to go into this bar with my girlfriends to eat and dance and yes on more than one occasion when visiting during the day we did see mice scampering around the place. I didnt say it reflected on the food in any way, your right the food is excellent, its the hygiene I would be concerned about to be honest.

As your your advertising sentence, the place has got better in the past 2 years, and it is relaxed its because it is usually empty and has no character. Nothing that cant be fixed and as I said "Sorry guys you seem to do well and try " But when it does have a few people in it, it is a great atmosphere but then you have to line up to use one of the 2 toilets it has. Not my idea of a fun night spending it in a line for the ladies.

A review site is to give a personal experience to a venue and I gave my honest opinion.
