The simple charms of The Belle Vue have made it a bit of a Clapham institution in recent years. Not only somewhere for commuters to pop in for a pint on their way through (The Belle Vue is conveniently close to Clapham Common tube), it’s also a spot where locals enjoy the calm atmosphere of a restaurant along with the home style comforts of a favourite pub. As the lights are dimmed diners find themselves ensconced in a cosy setting where faded gilt mirrors, button backed banquettes and chunky scrubbed wooden tables provide a modern take on old Victorian pub décor. The pared down styling continues on a traditional menu which changes to suit the seasons but will more often than not offer favourites such as fish and chips, honey roast ham with fried egg and delicious chargrilled steaks.
