The Eagle, Chatham Road, Clapham, London

When you walk into this traditional pub, serving a wide range of rotating real ales, you could be forgiven for thinking you had teleported from Clapham to somewhere deep in the English countryside. Join the regulars propping up the bar or lounge on the large deep red leather sofas to admire the Victorian fireplaces and other period features. The Eagle has lively bar staff and, on weekend evenings, there is usually a noisy crowd of good-natured drinkers in their late-thirties sinking a few jars. 7/10
