Traditional English pubs are renowned for their cosy seats, great range of ales and warm, welcoming atmosphere. They are also a great place to meet Londoners and soak up the atmosphere, so they also make great places to stay the night, especially if you've indulged in a little too much 'London Pride' ale. The Brewers Inn is located in the pleasant Wandsworth district of London, just south of the River Thames. Located in a largely residential area, but close to the shops of Wandsworth High Street, this boutique style hotel offers a great place to socialise and sleep with good links to central London.
The Brewers Inn has 16 well-appointed, en-suite bedrooms, which have been decorated in a cosy mix of traditional and contemporary styles, with rich fabrics and colours and a good range of amenities. Rooms are available in Superior classes and all rooms come complete with flat-screen TVs with free view channels, direct-dial telephones, hairdryers, ironing facilities, complimentary toiletries and tea and coffee making facilities, all you will need during your stay and a little extra. The hotel also has free WI-Fi in the rooms and common areas, which is a real bonus as many London hotels charge for this service. The hotel also has a luggage store, but guests should note that there is no night porter, so if you require a late arrival you will need to call the hotel.
The Brewers Inn is also a gastropub, which serves a delectable selection of food and, of course, an extensive wine and beer menu. Alongside a traditional British roast, you can enjoy a modern take on classics such as sausages and mash, fish and chips and specials such as Scottish mussels and chorizo linguine. You can also enjoy a very hearty full English breakfast
The hotel is in a great location to explore this green and safe area, just a short walk away you have the unique boutiques of Northcote Road, including Neal's Yard Remedies for holistic beauty products and Hamish Johnston for a mouthwatering selection of cheeses. Northcote Road is also home to some excellent cafes and restaurants, but guests should be warned, on Sundays these fill up quickly with 'yummy mummies' and pushchairs. Clapham Junction is also home to some very sophisticated bars, such as The White Room, and it's not too far away to get a bus back to the hotel.
Wandsworth Common is just a ten minute walk to the south of the hotel, where you can enjoy picnics, tennis and bowls, and a 25 minute walk away you will find Battersea Park, where you can enjoy funfairs in the summer months and Battersea Children's Zoo, an adorable place to see otters, monkeys and flamingoes. Battersea Power Station is nearby, where occasionally you can visit concerts and events, although most of the time it sits there looking gloomy.
Wandsworth Town Station is just a few minutes walk away from The Brewers Inn, making the hotel very convenient for transport in to central London. From this station you can arrive in Waterloo in 10 minutes for exploring the South Bank exhibition centres and the London Eye, or you can travel to Richmond to see wild deer in Richmond Park, or Wimbledon to watch the tennis.
With very friendly staff, competitive rates and rooms, which are very stylish and comfortable, The Brewers Inn is a great choice for a London stay. It may be a little outside the centre of London, but Wandsworth is a great area to explore and transport links are so good you will not notice the distance. If staying here, pick a room facing Wandsworth Town Hall, which is an attractive building to look out on.
