The Cyclist


Nestled in the vibrant heart of Balham, The Cyclist stands as a modern British pub that not only embraces the allure of seasonal ingredients but also takes the concept of sharing plates to the next level.

Dive into a culinary adventure with an array of small dishes or opt for the traditional gastropub mains that promise to tantalise your tastebuds. On weekends, brace yourself for extraordinary Saturday brunches and indulge in some of the most coveted Sunday roasts in SW12.

Behind the bar, discover a haven of craft beer aficionados, masters of classic cocktails, and connoisseurs of small-batch gins, all accompanied by a meticulously curated wine list. The Cyclist isn't just a pub; it's a destination for those who appreciate the art of a well-poured pint, a swift lunch bite, or an evening of gastronomic delights with friends and family.

As the sun sets, the street-side terrace beckons, creating an ideal space for edgy alfresco drinking and dining during the balmy spring and summer months. The Cyclist is an urban culinary journey with an edge, where every plate and pour tells a story of flavour and style.
