O’Neills is the current name for the pub at 196 Clapham High Street, but previously it has been known as both The Goose and Granite and The Plough Inn.

Based in what was a sixteenth century barn, the Lost Society bar restaurant on Wandsworth Road is reputed to be haunted by a murdered flower seller named Rose Deveraux. The barn was once part of the Clapham Manor Estate and who’s main house was once the venue for a banquet in honour of Queen Elizabeth I.
