“A great pub!” (part of the Three Cheers Pub Co) down Balham way, with smart interior and gorgeous, big outside garden, and where steaks and ‘artisan pizzas’ are mainstays of a comprehensive menu: “even if the pub was boring, I’d come back time and again for the fantastic food!”
“Big, busy (noisy) Balham gastropub” with an “attractive, large back room” and lovely garden. Fans applaud its “good no-nonsense cooking” but ratings are under-cut by those who find it “too un-memorable”.
Named after the mythical island at the heart of the legend of King Arthur, The Avalon is a majestic public house and garden located in Clapham South. Embracing our iconic English heritage, we are passionate about showcasing our country’s finest produce in the most beautiful of surroundings.
Our elegant dining room is perfect for leisurely lunches or sumptuous suppers, our busy bar comes alive in the evening, guaranteeing a great night out, whilst the Blue Room upstairs is magnificent for private parties. On a sunny day, there really isn’t anywhere better to be than one of our three fabulous gardens, voted London’s best by Time Out magazine.
We are proud to work with some of the best small producers the British Isles has to offer. Our chicken and pork are all free-range, our beef is aged in-house and our fish is sustainably sourced from day boats on our wonderful south coast.

If you’re looking for a beautiful private room south of the river, look no further.
A secret staircase behind the bar leads you to The Blue Room. Vintage prints of the legendary Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco set the scene. Beautiful rococo wall lights reflect the luxurious atmosphere whilst handsome Georgian furniture (including a mahogany dining table seating 22) creates a setting for indulgence. A perfect space for private dinner parties, birthday parties, hen parties – whatever takes your fancy.
The Blue Room boasts a 100 inch high-definition screen with surround sound (connected to a massive on-line film library), high-spec stereo system with extensive iPod based playlist, soundproofing and Wi-Fi throughout. We also have the Lucky Voice Karaoke System, providing access to the UK’s largest song library so whether it’s about Kylie or The Killers, we have the tracks for brilliant karaoke parties.
If you’re on business it’s a perfect room for private lunches, brainstorming sessions or team away days that combine work with fantastic pub dining. Bespoke food and drink menus can be created to suit your individual requirements. Please call Nes on 020 8675 8613 or email with any enquiries.
