Not sure when exactly you where at the Landor must be a long time ago as two young guys have taken it over 3-4 month ago and have got rid of those stinky boats and most of the crap, and it now has a great wine list spirit selection, ales and fantastic food (very reasonable prices) they have also done a little refurb and the place looks cool you should check it out!!

Always bustling, big screen for games, good selection of drinks, decent prices, awesome back garden, and usually friendly staff. Pool table and board games if you're feeling playful too!
2 for 1 burger night is a great deal for tasty burgers and I hear the rest of their food is quite good. Especially the Sunday roast!
I think this pub probably can be a lot better than I thought it was, because when we were there, there were about 3 other people. Which would be OK in a small pub, but this one is huge!
It has a canoe on the ceiling, and a quiz machine, and the ale was a bit dodgy.

Yes, I did go a while back! I will update my review next time I'm over there...

Yes, a bunch of my mates have said that it's changed for the better. That being said, I liked the canoe on the ceiling! Must pop down for a World Cup game in June....
I lived pretty much opposite (and in) The Landor for about 3 years. Good old man’s pub with pool tables, where you can always get a seat and some decent pub grub. Has a huge beer garden that is inexplicably neglected in favour of the packed Falcon and it even has its own theatre which recently showed the critically acclaimed “Stockwell”.
The roasts are perhaps not as good as somewhere like the Calf but its still a chilled out comfy place for a quiet pint.
If you read my reviews you'll know I like my pubs in Clapham! The Landor is only 250m from my house and until last night it was the only pub in Sw4 I had never been to. I'd heard good things about the pub from friends and fellow Qypers but for some reason never went to check it out myself, so I was particularly excited as I braved the weather and jogged down landor lane last night. So, what's the verdict? Pretty darn good actually and inches abway from a 5 star rating
Good things - great decor, quiz machine, 5 different ales (including hogsback T.E.A and Doom Bar), board games, turkey & stuffing crisps, friendly locals and plenty of seating.
Things to work on - The service isn't brilliant in the Landor and the bar staff were far more interested in talking to eachother than serving their customers and even though I didn't try the food, the menu looked very plain and bog standard. This is not a gastro pub (but perhaps they do the simple things well, I will have to come back and let you know)
All in all this is a great pub and easily the best traditional boozer around clapham North station. I'll be back!

Don’t be put of by the exterior here. As I walked towards the place I initially thought it was closed…then I saw the pool table (I’m not a big fan of a prominent pool table). Actually this is quite a spacious pub, with a few screens for the sport..and the aforementioned pool table is located off to the side.
The décor theme is ‘on a ship’. Various seafaring paraphernalia hangs from the ceiling, including a hammock (love that word!)
Served 3 ales plus 1 guest ale….something I’ve never heard of called Golden Garden. At least that was the name on the piece of paper that had been taped over the Old Speckled Hen clip. It wasn’t that good to be honest, but having not had it before I do not know if this was due to its condition or whether it is just not especially nice to begin with.
I’m no Colombo, but the name leads me to suspect that there is a theatre in here somewhere. I didn’t see it (and wouldn’t be that bothered anyway).

I'm pretty sure this is the only pub in Clapham i have never been to. Sounds interesting (guest ales, pool table etc.)
Happy Moose Drinker, 3 December 2009:
yeah - I would probably have given it 4 stars if the ale had been better...and that can just be unlucky. You should definately give it a go.
Andrew Hunter, 3 December 2009:
I will do. I'm still yet to find my perfect real ale pub in Clapham. The Prince of Wales and The Rose and Crown are currently fighting it out. I must admit though, i still find myself straying up to Stockwell to the Priory arms for the "ultimate pub experience".
A very nice neighbourhood pub. I’ve not been to the theatre but it’s a good place for a drink and a chat, plus there’s a pool table and football on the TV (although some annoying reflections off those Victorian-style hanging lamps!)
At first glance a person walking past would chalk this up as a cosy neighbourhood local - but when it comes to The Landor there is definitely 'more than meets the eye’. The Landor, is home to the Landor Theatre - one of London’s top pub theatres, and also hides one of South Londons best beer gardens. Filled with random bric a brac and mismatched furniture, the atmosphere is relaxed and jovial, the food is home made and surprising good, and come a game night, the place positively hums. Good pool table too.
