In a quiet residential street not far from Clapham Common sits Bobbin, an appealing neighbourhood gastropub. It has a changing rota of proper ales and an airy conservatory at the rear.
Tranquil gastropub with deep blue decor offering modern Italian-influenced menu, and a beer garden.
“An oh-so-brilliant spin-off to Robin Gill’s Dairy next door, Counter Culture serves ‘how do you make that’ small plates in a seriously unpretentious setting dominated by counter seating (obvs). Staff are all tattoos and charisma, the music’s old school, booze is strictly BYO and the loos are next door.”
“Serving up light sourdough pizzas topped with seasonal Italian ingredients. ”
“Beautiful Thai cuisine and quite cheap as well. Definitely try the Big bowl soup noodles. ”
“Small parade of shops, gifts, clothes, cheeses, butchers, beauty salon, hairdresser”
“Minnow is an instant charmer. It seduces before serving a thing thanks to its pastel green frontage and Parisian-style café tables and the hanging roses around its window. The effect continues inside, with a tiled black and white floor, light wood tables and grey banquettes creating an effect that is the archetype of light and airy. There are more flowers hanging on a doorway, and an itsy terrace adorned with flower boxes out back. All that’s missing is a white picket fence. A short cocktail list which sees each drink named after a different Clapham resident through history, and served with a bar mat explaining the details, is another endearing touch — the kind of thing you’d see on a Pinterest wedding board and copy for yourself. Ideal for Bottomless brunch, brunch, lunch and aperitivo”
