The Chicken Shop

Comensal Bar and Restaurant (Mexican)
32 Abbeville Road, Clapham, SW4 9NG T: 020 8673 7272
Something a bit different for Abbeville Road. The menu includes lots of Mexican dishes we hadn’t tried before as well as our favourites. There’s an emphasis on sharing plates too and the cocktails were good. Service can be a bit slow when it’s busy but we really like this place.

Nancy Lam’s Enak Enak (Indonesian)

A new, buzzy bar and restaurant with a fab roof terrace and friendly vibe. It always seems busy when we go past and is popular with a youngish crowd. Good food, stylish décor, friendly staff. DJs at weekends so it can get loud! A good place for a pre/post cinema visit. Recommended.

Rookery, The (Modern European)
69, Clapham Common Southside, Clapham, London SW4 9DA, T: 020 8673 9162
Great in the summer as there is a large outdoor area in front of this New York style restaurant/bar. Small but interesting menu and friendly service. One of our favourites.
