The BobbinA local pub hidden down a quiet residential street just off Clapham Common, The Bobbin is a warm and friendly place to meet, drink and eat the very best seasonal food.

Our emphasis is on affordability and flexibility - you don't have to eat to get a table and there is no minimum spend, and people are encouraged to visit for everything from a pie and a pint or a light snack and coffee, to drinks with friends or a full three-course meal with wine.

Weekend brunch, lunch, dinner and nutritious children's menus are available, offering exceptional quality food with a fresh, seasonally evolving menu. Every aspect from design through to delivery aims to be environmentally conscious and sustainable.
