Sunday Roast: Good Lamb roast, lovely sweet gravy, good portions of meat, meat is a little fatty however and the roast potatoes are not crispy, veg is well cooked and flavoursome overall. Good service, nice garden patio for good weather. Overall 6.5/10.more

I needed somewhere to hook up with a friend last week so she could meet my dog, Benji, so scoured the web to find a dog-friendly, non-sporty pub in Clapham. Voila - the Tim Bobbin. We had to visit just for the name -...more
