The Draft House was the first of my 8 London pubs on Friday evening. I'd only previously been to the Battersea branch of this chain. As you'd expect given its location, this is full of City types who on the most part appear to be pretty inconsiderate. Trying to see the ale range was difficult in itself with a group of them hogging the bar. With the rugby world cup having started, quite a few were in to watch it on the huge screen. Ales were Windsor & Eton Zinzan's Drop, Old Dairy Gold Top, Sambrooks Wandle, Draft House Session IPA & Dark Star Hophead. The cider was Orchard Pig Philosopher. Service was lacklustre. Whilst the one barman acknowledged me, one barmaid ignored me in favour of drying glasses, whilst being happy to serve somebody who'd just walked up to the bar. CAMRA members are supposedly offered discounts. But none was offered on this occasion. Not somewhere I'd make a beeline for. But ok if in the area.

Now reopened as the Draft House. When i visited they had 4 ales on including two from Sambrooks, & one Twickenham ale.

According to the bar man they have a beer of the day at £2.75. It was Sambrooks Lavender Hill when i was there and it was well served.

Excellent selection of lager and bottled beers.

Beer prices apart from the beer of the day based on alcohol strength.

3.9 to 5% I think was £3.50. Which isnt bad in this area.

Seemed happy to give tasters and the food looked nice too.

Great if you work in the area and/or visiting Tower of london.

Hmmm, yeeees...

Went there for an agency do so didn't have to pay UNTIL the tabe ran out, then... woo-hoo! Didn't see much change from 2 Amstel and a rose wine (for the laydee)!

No ceiling baffling meant the noise echoed of the bare plaster and quiet chat was impossible. OK, there were quite a few suits in there but still...

the most expensive bottle that appears on their website is *only* 200. So you are oh so wrong HTM69. But not by all that much....

You're talking out of your arse! Who sells wine for 250 a bottle except maybe the Mirabelle or Fat Duck?

I've had plenty of great experiences here. The food is excellent, the staff are great and the managers really know how to look after their guests.

Go back to the Liberty Bounds because that's clearly the type of establishment that suits you. Cheap and nasty!
