Clachan, The

The Clachan

If you spend any time at all drinking in London (and why else are you here?) then you'll come across a fair few Nicholson's pubs: there are around 40 in total in the city. Owned by pub company Mitchell's and Butler's, Nicholson's have committed themselves to real ale. As you may have guessed, The Clachan is a Nicholson's pub; it boasts eight handpumps, on which you might find brews from Rooster's, Ilkley, Adnams, Portobello or St Austell, among others. Don't expect anything spectacular on keg or in bottle, though.
