Steaks, burgers, ribs, a great atmosphere and many different beers - you'll be left feeling full and satisfied from the generous portions!

No. 32 The Old Town

A great bar right off Clapham Common with nice cocktails and good food!

Amazing food and 50% off your food bill with a Tastecard. Lovely beer garden for balmy evenings and friendly staff.

North St. Deli

In the heart of Clapham Old Town, this deli's very friendly staff sell freshly made salads and sandwiches.

The Jam Tree

There are endless food and drink establishments around Clapham Common that have a lively atmosphere and The Jam Tree is included in these. It's amazing in the summer, as the whole front opens up into a terrace. They also do bottomless prosecco brunch at the weekend.

Super comfy chairs that tilt backwards for extra comfort, careful you don't fall asleep though. Restaurant/café/bar inside and out.

Two Brewers

Karaoke, drag acts and cabaret, this bar on Clapham High Street is definitely an exciting night out!

Nardulli

Nardulli makes the best ice cream! It is located opposite Clapham Common and there is always a queue outside in the summer. The mint choc chip is delicious!

A beautiful park to take the kids to or take part in a fitness boot camp!

Kerbisher & Malt

Sustainable and stylish fish and chips that taste fantastic!

The Ginger Pig

As well as sublime sausage and stilton rolls, the Ginger Pig sells a great variety of lunch treats. Limited vegetarian options, but they do serve many of their products with rocket.

I was really impressed with this sushi restaurant just off Clapham High Street. They serve very good quality dishes made using fresh ingredients and the atmosphere is perfect for a catch up with friends or a special date night.

Manuel

"Great pubs, cafes, brunch on Sundays is the best, one of my favourite cafes is Fantasia, a small cafe in the middle of the Old Town, with really good prices, simple and nice food. There are a couple of designer furniture stores next door that make the whole experience really nice. Pubs wise, the list is endless. The Sun in the summer of course, No. 32 for a nice cocktail, the Bobbin for an award winning Sunday road - literally... more
