Junction

36 St. Johns Hill
Battersea
SW11 1SA

Formerly the Windsor Castle

Although this pub is not a listed building, it is recognised by the Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) as having an historic interior of local importance and the description is as follows: “This drinkers' pub is just up the hill from the main entrance to Clapham Junction railway station. It is a classic example of a 'brewers' Tudor' pub. It has panelled walls and hefty, rustically treated timbers to the roof trusses - no doubt concealing very unTudor steel beams. Note how much use is made of imitation adzed tooling on the timbers to enhance ye olde effect (now sadly painted white). The bar counter seems to be original work but there has been much renewal in the back fittings. History in the area: Battersea was famous for its market gardens and especially for its asparagus which was sold in 'Battersea bundles'. From the late 17th century several industries flourished including copper works, lime works and milling.”
