A nice hidden gem in Clapham. When you're following your sat nav there you think you must be in the wrong place but it's just not where you would expect a restaurant. I went here for a birthday Sunday roast and the food was excellent. Staff were very pleasant if a little slow at times. Would recommend.more

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

When I walked in, I kinda feared the worst. I'd cycled over from Brixton, was wearing a scruffy shirt and was met by the appraising looks of a group sat by the door, all looking magazine-styled and not a hair out of place. Suspected I'd walked into yet another gastro-pub dominated by Rahs.

The Bobbin is tucked away but has a great rustic feel to it. Their beer garden is large and the restaurant is lively. My first dining experience there was good and this was my second. I ordered the Fish n' Chips which turned into a BIG mistake. It was simply massive. (I'll post a photo too) I barely put a dent in it and unfortunately it sat like a rock on my stomach. There was way too much...more

If you're looking for a really good quality Sunday lunch in Clapham look no further. The gravy is always plentiful and delicious. The portion isn't massive but then I am quite greedy so it's probably enough for most people. You must remember to book though because they do get quite full, and if you're not a fan of kids then I would probably avoid this place on a Sunday.more
