  • Visitor Information

A great place for a family Sunday brunch - and half the families in Wandsworth clearly agree as it gets packed with them on weekends. Locals with youngsters clearly appreciate the location of Common Ground; they can go for a walk around Wandsworth Common, feed the ducks and visit the playground, then retire here for large plates of food while their brood play with toys provided for them in the back room. Simple fresh healthy food - soups, salads, sandwiches, pasta ? are supplemented by less virtuous options of a full English breakfast, pancakes with berries, and giant Smartie cookies for the kids. It's good for tea too with homemade cakes (perhaps the portions could be bigger) to go with your tea or coffee. Parent-and-toddler groups meet here on weekdays with drop-in sessions for under fives. This is a wonderfully relaxing spot right on the common overlooking a huge field, with a shady outside area which is lovely in the summer.
