This large, two floor pub and restaurant is located just a short walk from Clapham Junction station in the former Temperance Billiards Hall, resulting in a vast interior that belies the comparatively small frontage. The front door takes you into a fairly small entrance space with limited seating options and stairs leading down to the main bar area and up to the mezzanine dining room. The bar is a particularly large room, in which you can easily visualise the rows of snooker tables that would have once filled the space. The servery has been built down the left hand wall of the bare boarded room and there is a good deal of vertical drinking space and standard tables and chairs in the space opposite. To the rear, the room brightens a little and offers some comfortable looking banquette seating options under tongue and groove panelled walls which have been decorated with lots of pictures including a remarkable number depicting goats. The upper level has slightly more formalised seating under a high gabled roof with a skylight making it a bright, airy daytime spot. There is a US diner themed menu which specialises in burgers (around a tenner each) and the food we sampled was all very tasty. The upstairs area deploys table service and we were attended to by a very friendly and helpful waiter, who went out of his way to make sure everyone in our party was happy and got what they wanted.
The pub has made an effort on the beer front, with three real ales available – Sharps Doom Bar, St Austell Tribute (£4.00) and Sambrooks Junction – and a surprisingly diverse and comparatively affordable range of local and craft keg and bottle options. My pint of Tribute was a little disappointing, lacking any real condition, but my friend’s pint of Doom Bar tasted much better, so I may have just been unlucky.
This is a fairly interesting place that certainly worked well as somewhere to enjoy a bite to eat. It’s quite an attractive building from the outside, but lacks any particularly interesting features within, with the cavernous interior sapping the place of any atmosphere. I’d possibly return in passing or for food again, but there are stronger options just a few minutes away.

The Goat is a large two floored pub with seating upstairs and a bar and seating downstairs. A gastro menu is available and the mains start at around £10 a dish, but there are various meal deals and promotions throughout the week which brings the price down. A premium draught range is available from the bar which also supports three hand pumps. The cask ales available during my recent Friday afternoon visit were Sambrook’s Junction, UBU Purity and Sharp’s Doom Bar.
I didn’t note the presence of any televisions, but there was some low rock music playing in the background.

This place was very quiet compared to its peers and I didn’t see anything in here that would have me rushing back. There’s nothing really wrong with the place, I just found it a little dull.
