Tris C left this review about The Lord Clyde

This pub dates from at least the early 19th century, possibly as the then Duke of Kent and was rebuilt in 1913. It’s grade II-listed and is cited on CAMRA’s list of pubs with historic interiors, this being of Regional Importance. The name of E. J. Bayling can be seen over the door, publican here from around 1910 until the early ‘20s. The place had been run by the same family for 60 years, but relinquished ownership in early 2020 to City Taverns (Best City Pubs).
I had saved this place for last on my five-pub SE1 crawl and was expecting fine things, given the heritage citation and reviews below. Turfing up mid evening, I could hear very loud music emanating from somewhere ahead of me. On arriving, I found to my horror that it was karaoke night, the place absolutely packed out with old-school locals, many who seemed really quite drunk, one witless fool arsing about to such an extent that he actually knocked a glass off the pot shelf. The noise was really too much, with loud pop songs and accompanying videos being played between participants; this was far from being a restful experience.
There were four ales, up to a point: Doom (coming soon), Landlord (coming soon), Pride (coming soon) then Wandle at £2.60 a half and in really rather poor condition, me barely finishing it.
For all the heritage, I’ve been here and seen it, but I’m highly unlikely to come here again.

a proper pub that seemed very unspoiled to me. It certainly warmed and cheered me up after seeing my old favourite Rose & Crown up the road closed and in the process of refurbishment/ probable ruination. A lovely two roomed corner community pub with five ales on. Much needed in a trendy gentrified area.

The fine pub exterior and opulent saloon bar of the Lord Clyde has been well documented by previous reviewers and it was good to find it being well utilised by a cross section of London society last week.
Being a fine evening there was as many out as in and the exterior benches were being mainly utilised by the city’s professional millennials whilst the old ale drinking gits, including us, were propping up the bar and then two darts teams were going at it in an official match in the back room.
For our visit the 5 handpumps were also Doom Bar, Adnams Southwold Bitter, Youngs Bitter and the Hogs Back TEA and then the fifth had Butcombe El Toro, their brew for the world cup. We ducked this one as Butcombe had inexplicitly decided to use the Argentinian no10 shirt for the pump clip (probably by some young marketing exec type who wasn’t around for the 1986 quarter final) , and went for the TEA which was OK , but not brilliant.
I agree with others that the beer falls short of doing this pub justice, bust still remains a must visit when in the area for the décor alone.
