  • The Junction Pub Guide To St Patricks Day
Post Date: 14 Mar 2024

Get ready for a weekend full of shamrocks, leprechauns and the odd pot of gold – that’s right, Sunday is St Patrick’s Day!

It’s that time of year when we all seem to claim our ‘Irish’ roots and enjoy a grand old shindig with a pint (and then some) of the black stuff.

Fortunately, you don’t need the luck of the Irish to find the perfect watering hole this Paddy’s Day – Clapham Junction is home to fantastic pubs and bars where you’re guaranteed to enjoy the craic. Here's just a selection...
