The Skylark Café


Planning a summer party?

Make the most of summer evenings by hosting a BBQ on the beautiful Wandsworth Common!

The Skylark Café is the park café in the middle of South West London’s leafy Wandsworth Common. The café is surrounded by 170 acres of beautiful grasslands, trees, duck ponds and 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 Caravan Coffee Roasters, a great selection of craft beers and wines from Bibendum.

The Skylark Café is available to hire for evening private hire. 

The Skylark Café can be hired on an exclusive basis in the evenings for 40-90 guests when their team takes the philosophy of 'simple food, done well' up a notch or two. Their in-house Chefs create delicious, freshly prepared party food served in a variety of formats to suit the occasion, including:

  • Milestone Birthdays
  • End of Summer parties for class parents.
  • School leaver parties
  • full sit-down dinner for up to 50 guests for a really special occasion.
  • Family gatherings

The Skylark Café also runs 'Pop Up' dinners with a tasting menu and matched wine list for a fun night out with friends or a romantic date night. Sign up to their email newsletter at www.skylarkcafé to hear about these or also search on Design My Night.
