Once known, and still sometimes referred to as as the Windsor Castle, this pub has a good traditional feel. Inside has been opened out into one long room, with the bar in the centre between front and back areas. At the back is a garden. A reasonable range of ales is usually on offer, with ELB Foundation two from Bedlam alongside IPA and Abbot on this occasion. Old Rosie is the draught cider, although at time of visit a mini cider festival was under way with a stack of boxes. A good alternative to the Falcon if it is too busy.

The Junction is a nice looking pub that is situated close to Clapham Junction train station.
Once inside there is a long oblong shaped room which runs to the rear,there is a wood floor,the seating is a mix of tall tables and chairs and comfy bench seating and chairs,the rear area is carpeted and has normal tables and chairs.
The pub is a Greene King house,but there was a decent choice of real ales on the bar,i had a drink of Plain Ales Hairy Hooker,which was a very nice drink,the other real ales were Sambrooks Scrumdown,Trumans Blind Side and GK London Glory.
The TVs were showing the France v Wales rugby game.
I thought this was a decent pub to have a drink in.

Located outside one of the entrances to Clapham Junction station, this is a compact Taylor Walker pub catering to a fairly transient customer base. You enter into a small seating area at the front of the pub, with bare floorboards inlaid with a few decorative tiles and a smattering of high table and stool seating. There is a nice fireplace to the left and the walls have been covered with some high wood panelling and wallpaper designed to look like a set of bookshelves. The servery appears midway down the left hand wall and has a traditional counter and bar back with a pub mirror as the centrepiece. The canopy, in true railway station bar style, is adorned with all manner of travel themed items as well as photos of old trains and some large letters which spelled out the pub’s name. Beyond the bar is a rear section which probably qualifies as the lounge. Here we find banquettes around the perimeter and standard tables with low stools elsewhere, allowing plenty of seating to be crammed into a relatively small space. There is a fireplace on the rear wall with one of several TV screens above it, all showing live International football, whilst the walls display more of that stupid bookcase wallpaper and some decent white panels. A screen to the rear hid an old stained glass window which looked like it could’ve made a nice feature and there were more old train pictures dotted around, some suitcases in cages mounted to the wall and some huge ‘church-style’ light features hung from the high gabled ceiling. A door leads out to a rear patio area which I failed to explore and music played throughout my Saturday night visit, although it was generally drowned out by the hubbub of a sizeable crowd.
Six handpulls offered Plain IPA and Sheep Dip, Taylor Walker 1730, Greene King IPA and two real ciders. I’ve generally had good experiences with Plain Ales and decided to give their IPA a try. Thankfully this kept up the good run as I thought it was a nicely balanced beer kept in pretty good condition.
With the downturn in quality and service in the nearby Falcon, jumping off the train at Clapham Junction for a swift pint has become a bit of a rarity for me, but I thought this place worked well as a station-side boozer and I’m fairly sure I’ll be popping in again sometime soon.
