Clapham has had a bit of a resurgence in popularity in the last couple of decades. Gentrification projects in the '80s made the area a desirable place to live, and restaurants, bars and pubs started blossoming near Clapham Common. A night out in Clapham tends to be more relaxed than in other parts of London, but the bars and pubs still make sure a good party is easy to find. Clapham restaurants are perfect for everything from lazy brunches to large dinners for rowdy revellers. If that's not enough, there are plenty of things to do nearby, including club nights, concerts and a bit of theatre. Should all that be a bit too much, you can always lounge around on Clapham Common.

It's all about the seafood at this Stables Market spot. And while the traditional fish and chips prove popular, there's a lot more to this place than Blighty's national dish. There's quite a bit of variety. Starters range from oysters, dressed crab and seafood cocktails to soft shell crab with a chilli and paprika coating, king scallops seared with garlic and chilli, and the Seawise signature of bang bang king prawns served with a spicy, tangy mayo. Mains include king prawn skewers and New Zealand green lip mussels all cooked on the barbecue. They're alongside burgers, salmon and dill fishcakes, lemon sole goujons and a 'full works' platter - a feast of six oysters, dressed crab, grilled scallops,green lip mussels, king prawn skewers, butterfly king prawns and whitebait. House wines, beers by the bottle and keenly priced coffees comprise the drinks list.
