Draft House Northcote

northcote5

The mixed clientele – ages, sexes, etc – you find at this Draft House is a tribute to how well owner and founder Charlie McVeigh’s vision of a venue that elevates beer to a place alongside wine has worked. The venue here is split into bar at the front and restaurant at the back, while there are plenty of seats outside for those who prefer their beer diluted by Clapham drizzle. The beer itself is excellent: you’ll always find local brewery Sambrook’s represented, alongside the likes of Camden Town, Austrian lager-meisters Stiegl and plenty of interesting bottles.
