About the Pub

Reopened 10 October 2019 having been closed since Young's moved out of Wandsworth in 2006. Now has the same tenants as the nearby Wandsworth pubs the Old Sergeant and the Pig & Whistle. The pub has a strict 18+ admission policy. The Ram Inn is Grade II listed. Young's London Original ('Ordinary') and Special plus a Young's seasonal ale are on the pumps and a guest ale should be available in future. The Slybeast microbrewery has a six barrel plant in the pub and its keg 1533 session IPA gets its name from the date of the first known year of beer being brewed on this site. Indeed this Wandsworth site is recognised as having the record for the longest continuous brewing history on one site in Britain.

The decor in the main bar of this former Young's Brewery Tap is a nod to Young's Brewery history. Upstairs is a little different with shuffleboards and a Citroen H2 van serving Tacos. This has a street food feel. This bar is closed Mon - Wed; open 12 - midnight Thu - Sat, 12 - 7 Sun

On 23 July 2013 London Borough of Wandsworth’s planning committee resolved to grant consent for the redevelopment of the Ram Brewery site in Wandsworth. The outline planning application was submitted by Minerva in November 2012 and forms the centrepiece of Wandsworth town centre's regeneration plans, now overseen by Greenland Group. Sambrook's Brewery will be moving from its Battersea site to a larger facility in the Ram Quarter during 2020.

Yellow brick with plaster details, and glazed terra cotta ground floor. 2-3 storeys. EXTERIOR: Curved wider bay to corner of Wandsworth High and Ram Street, with 4 window bays to each return at 2nd floor, additional 3-5 bays at 1st and ground floors with carriage entrance to north end at Ram Street and additional wide entrance to west end at Wandsworth High Street. Ground floor is 1930s glazed cream terra cotta; pilasters with flat ionic capitals defined each wide window bay; upper floors of 1883 build, the 1st floor windows within plastered architraves and under shallow scrolled pediments linked by continuous frieze, 2nd floor with shorter sashes also in plastered architraves and abutting corbelled eaves cornice. Corner bay with 'THE RAM INN' green lettering to frieze and flanked by glazed plaques with Ram detail under segmental arch and `Young & Co.'s Ales & Stout' over `Public Bar', entrance now blocked; slightly advanced upper storeys with pediment over 1st floor window; corbelled base of chimney to 2nd floor extending above shallow hipped roof. Entrances each to High Street and Ram Street flanked by similar terra cotta plaques. INTERIOR: Ground floor retains beamed plaster ceilings. 1st floor has good neo-Elizabethan room with wood-panelled walls and honeycomb pattern plaster ceiling with foliate decoration; wide stone chimneypiece. HISTORY: In 1831, Young & Bainbridge bought the Ram brewery from Tritton, who had owned the freehold for this site since the C19. The earlier pub on the site, the Ram, was replaced with this building after the major 1881 fire at the brewery damaged the earlier Ram Inn, believed to have dated from the late-C17. This was again damaged in WWII. The pub was called the Ram until being re-named the Brewery Tap in 1974. See list entry for the Grade II* Brewery for a fuller history.
