The Southampton Arms Ale and Cider House, the only dedicated ale and cider house in london to sell only beer and cider from small, independent UK breweries.
Have you had the sausage roll here yet? What, are you serious?
Small pub, with an impressive range. Be warned though, the my don't have any fuzzy cider, if that's what you prefer, and the barmaid can't tell the difference between cider and Perry.
Nice stripped-down pub, bare in a good way like an early White Stripes album
Doesn't feel like you're in London which sometimes is a good thing. Good beer and unpretentious
Try the eggs. Interesting.
Epic, yet tiny, ale and cider house. This is one of my top five pubs in the universe.
It'll rekindle your love of cider. Vegetarian Scotch eggs are great for lining your stomach.
Real ale and cloudy cider.
Pork baps go hard. Order extra piccalilli!
They play records.
With a constantly changing selection of roughly ten beers, each one gone once the firkin runs dry, every visit is a singular, unassuming education in quality drinking.
This was my first pub in UK and it was just perfect. Great prices, stuff, menu and bar. 100% recommend!!
Great local pub with a good atmosphere.
Great selection of beer. And there's a bus stop right outside as well. Very nicely located
Pork bap. Pork bap. Pork bap. Pork bap. That's all you need to know.
A strong and ever changing selection of British beers, pork baps and live piano make this pub great!
Great selection of beers and a nice local crowd. However, gets very crowded in the evenings so don't expect to have anywhere to sit unless you're willing to wait. There's room outside though!
My favourite pub in London, feels like it's been transplanted from somewhere in Yorkshire. Wood, meat, real fire, cheap. Cash only, super friendly staff, great beers and cider, proper bar snacks.
Top pub...was quiet when we went in (1230 on a Monday between Xmas and NYE). Great beer selection, real fire, great atmosphere. Could do a beer festival in one stop here!
Excellent real ales and craft beers
Garden closes at 1030
Liking the vibe in here. Could take a while to get through the beers though ;)
Great atmosphere: old photos and vinyl on play. Only local ales and cider; don't expect lager. There is wine. Cheese and pork baps are amazing and cheap. Simply a treasure. Major thumbs up! Cash only!
The taps are always changing and they also work with a lot of London microbreweries, so the beer is amazing http://barchick.com/find-a-bar/london/the-southampton-arms
Love the food for a Sunday pub lunch - book in advance though
As they say, they "are the only dedicated ale & cider house in London to sell only beers & ciders from small independent UK brewers."
Get yourself a roast pork bap. Mindblowingly good. Great selection of ales and ciders although it's cash only!
Awesome beer selection. Contrary to popular rumour the beers are not exclusively local. They get the best on offer from Cornwall to Aberdeen via Huddersfield..
Separate bar & restaurant area were you can enjoy fine wine and good food or simply relax with friend over a beer.
Eat the roast pork bap. Amazingly tasty
When beer writers imagine heaven, it looks exactly like the Southampton Arms. (via nytimes)
Brilliant real ale/hipster pub. The pork pies are great!
For those that stumble across it, they’ll quickly realise that this place likes to keep things simple, for outside an old painted sign that reads ‘Ale, Cider, Meat’… pretty straight forward, no?
Easily one of the best pubs in London; countless ales, ciders and the best mustard I've ever tasted.
The Rum Porter is delicious but it's going fast!
Cash only folks!!
Fireplace AND real ale!
Named CAMRA’s ‘London Pub of the Year’.
Serious Pig Salami ... Seriously Good! Ask at the bar.
THE best pub in London
Quite some Collection of Ale & Cider
Try the scotch eggs. Just ask for extra mustard...
Gospel Oak Overground is only 5min walk. From outside the pub turn left then take the 2nd left. It's under 2nd bridge!
