This big Young's pub has a prime site on Clapham Common.

This big Young's pub has a prime site on Clapham Common (though with no views of the common; it faces the busy A road).

In the summer of 2015 a burger shack was added in the front garden, rather unimaginatively called Burger Shack, which is good for al fresco dining.


There are also rooms above the pub, run as a small hotel.

Such a beautiful pub with great food and a living etc worthy decor. I have been for Sunday lunch and dinner during the week and I have been beyond happy with my food and service both times. The Sunday lunch is not cheap but I believe that you get what you pay for and the meat was great quality and I have eaten so many greasy and bland pub Sunday lunches that I am happy to pay more for a decent one. Save space for pudding as the sticky toffee pudding with salted caramel ice cream is well worth the calories.

It really ticks all the boxes and more: traditional pub setting but modern and tidy. Exceptional modern pub/restaurant menu. Super friendly staff + a managing pub dog! Simply the best place to hang out in Clapham!

What's better than a great pub right in the park? Nothing. The Windmill is awesome :)

Er, rather odd image to include for this one! But it's a great option for a pub if you are around Clapham Common. It's pretty much slap bang in the middle of Clapham Common and Clapham South tube stations so you'll have to take a 10 minute walk in either direction or hop on a bus if you get off there. Once inside, it's a veritable rabbit warren of rooms to explore and lengths of wooden bar to prop up. There is often sport playing on the TV's and it's dog friendly - look out for a water bowls dotted about about the place. Even when busy, the staff were friendly and the drinks were reasonable. We will go back.

This is a fantastic option for Sunday lunch. Hearty portions, delicious food and a great ambiance. I had the lamb and it was stunning- thick slabs of juicy meat, with delicious roast potatoes and the obligatory Yorkshire puddings. One of the best roasts I've had in London.
