The Sun

Burger and A Drink

Located in the heart of Old Town and just a stone's throw away from the urban oasis of Clapham Common, The Sun is a traditional British boozer serving up some seriously cosy vibes. Choose from a selection of classic roast dishes or a range of mains (complete with tonnes of veggie and vegan options) and settle yourself in for a drawn-out Sunday session, with a glass of wine in hand.

The Northcote

All of the Sunday lunches served at The Northcote come with double egg Yorkshire puds, goose fat roasties, honey glazed parsnips, creamed leeks, rainbow chard and lashings of super-thick gravy. Located in the heart of the Clapham action, be sure to book ahead if you're planning on coinciding your visit with one of the Six Nations matches, as this place gets packed out. 

The Plough Clapham

Here at DesignMyNight, we reckon that anywhere that serves sides of extra cheesy macaroni balls deserves a special mention. With a list of sides that will have your eyes sneakily darting down the menu, you wouldn't be blamed for forgetting about this place's main show - but to do so would be a mistake. And with interiors as enticing as the food? The Plough is a repeat visit kind of place.

No 32 The Old Town

House Burger & Fries + a Pint or a glass of house wine or soft drink and 2 other offers

Located just a short stroll away from Clapham Common, No 32 The Old Town is a bright and contemporary restaurant with a fairy light-lit terrace perfect for al fresco dining. From noon on Sundays this place offers a range of roasts, expect 28-day-aged beef, free-range chicken and tasty vegan alternatives. Opt for a side of truffle macaroni cheese for the ultimate weekend indulgence.

The Abbeville

Somewhere between a cosy pub and sophisticated eatery, The Abbeville offers the perfect lazy London afternoon setting. Curl up in a corner with a pint and a plate piled high with some of the best roast potatoes in the capital. In the summer months, the sunny terrace and street-side tables fill up quick - so be sure to head here early.
