Tris C left this review about Clapham Tap

A mid-19th century backstreet pub, this was originally the Manor Arms until conversion to CBC format in 2013, the current reinvention and name dating from 2017, a description hampered by it not having a website.
You enter via an astroturf front patio (there’s a rear garden), the place small and quite dark with bare brick, lacquered floor, carpeted to the rear with wood panelling, some eclectic bric-a-brac, tabletop Space Invaders machine, bored games, quite loud Queen and pointless, silent TV showing The Jonathan Woss show for no purpose. Customers were quite mixed but some laddish, then a gaggle of fizzed-up squealers, the whole making for an unrestful experience in quite gloomy surrounds.
With CBC having upped sticks, there are now just two cask beers on: Brixton Life on Mars mild and Purity Jimbo, £5.90 a pint (my request for a half ignored) and good.
This isn’t the worst place by SW4 standards, but the Stonhouse next door is a better bet, not least because of more civilised customers and no TV. And why is it called a ‘tap’?

Rated 3.5.

At last, a decent pub. Bar in the centre as you enter. Various hand pumps, including Jaipur which I naturally had. Beer garden to the rear, seating out front. I would return to this place

Real Ale Ray left this review about Craft Beer Co

The interior consists of a U shaped lounge and bar with oak panelled walls and red leather banquette seating throughout. Ten Pumps with 7 in use, on our visit, so we went for the Pale Ale brewed by Kent Brewery especially for the pub and Crouch Vale EL Dorado. A good mix of music was played on our visit, which helped as the two staff members behind the bar wouldn't have inspired you. Especially the young barmaid with dyed blue hair, who only smiled and acknowledged us when we were leaving. The pub wasn't very busy on our Friday eve visit, I wonder why.
