The moment we walked in here we were acknowledged by two friendly members of staff who welcomed us and asked what they could get me. I wasn't sure which beer to go for so the barman let me try a few of the beers, explaining each one as he went and saying which was his favourite. After helping me pick... More

I've known Northcote Road for over twenty five years and have seen its transformation ( should have bought that flat above the shops but that's another story..!) from a mediocre street to a "trendy" bustling one. Former banks are now hip bars etc. Still amidst all this The Draft house ( an establishment that has not been there for years... More

Oh my lord, not a day goes by where I didn't think about that perfect burger I had here months ago! The food is just exceptional, I got really lucky stumbling into here during a lunch break and I'm so glad I did! 10/10

I was here last week (Feb 17) and I tried some different beers. They were really good and actually it was really cheap which was quite surprising to me. We had some food as after a few beers we got hungry but the food was not very good. I totally recommend this for going out for a few drinks!

Visited recently on a Friday night for a colleague's leaving do. Friendly servers and good food and drink, but the music was very loud and it was quite dark so it seemed more like a club than a pub. It didn't ruin the experience but it made it difficult to have a conversation over food and drinks.

This has always been a good place for beers but I've only recently realised how good the food is. The burgers are superb. Service is also really friendly and helpful. Will be back again soon.

The Draft House was highly recommended by a few colleagues of mine. I had heard a lot of good things from the place so decided to give it a go. I went in for lunch and a pint with a work friend. My experience was somewhat dampened by the fact that I discovered a hair on my burger. I’m not... More

A great selection of ales, largers and beers. If I was being fussy, my only complaint is the food hasn't always been on the money when I've been and they could change the beers they have on tap more often
