The Skylark Café


Looking for a Summer lunch or event venue? we cater for both big or small get-togethers...

Located in the heart of beautiful Wandsworth Common, The Skylark Café is surrounded by 170 acres of beautiful grasslands, trees, duck ponds, wildflowers and occupies the ground floor of a lovely old Victorian farm house. The Skylark Café is open seven days a week serving All Day Brunch, coffee from Roo Roastery and a carefully selected list of craft beers and wines. 

This Summer you can choose from a drinks party with seasonal party food, a relaxed barbecue on the terrace at sunset, or pull out all the stops with a barbecue feast for a very special occasion.

We are currently operating within the official Covid guidance and restrictions so please note that event bookings maybe subject to change in accordance with latest government rulings. 

The Skylark Café is available for exclusive evening private hire for up to 100 people (subject to Covid restrictions). 

The Skylark Café can either be hired on an exclusive basis in the evenings for 40-100 guests when their team takes the philosophy of 'simple food, done well' up a notch or two. On the night, your own dedicated chefs and front-of-house team will take care of the food and drinks service, so you can focus on your guests!

We also do celebration cakes (to takeaway or as part of a private hire event).
