We booked this a bit in advanced as it’s been recommended for Sunday lunch on some websites so obviously has a good PR team. Went on a cold snowy Sunday and despite a really warm welcome and smile from the staff we were shown in...More

We didn’t intend to eat here, but glad that we did. Our first choice was 22 North Street just a few yards away. We hadn’t booked so took the risk that the place was full. Sure enough, there were no tables available, and we were...More

I wanted to book a table of six for Sunday lunch but sadly I was met by a very rude and unwelcoming waitress when I walked in to enquire about a table. Unfriendly and cold. Sadly they need to improve their front of house customer...More

Tried this place out as it's about to become our local pub next month. We really enjoyed our meals of chicken on ciabatta, the veal & the bobbin burger. All our meals were delicious. The chips didn't seem as fresh as they could have been...More

This pub has friendly staff, lovely drinks, good food, and nice lights. Head here for a drink followed by No 22 Old Town for dinner.

Pretty disappointing experience. £18 for the roasted pork belly. Pork was dry and very small portion of the sides. For instance, just two pretty small roast potatoes! So different from similar places in the area where there's almost too much food! Roast arrived within five...More

Came here on a Sunday afternoon for a few drinks and ended up staying for lunch. The roast was quite good, but we were unpleasantly surprised when we realised the prices. The Bobbin charges high prices that aren't in line with the service and food...More

Visiting our daughter in Clapham Common, she suggested this great little pub, which has a great outdoor space. We had some great food and service, a couple, of bottles of wine and enjoyed a summers evening. It was popular, but not over busy, being slightly...More

£18 is a lot to charge for a Sunday roast, but they made it worth it. Lovely, rare, pink roast beef, crispy yorkshire pud and a firey horseradish sauce... exactly what you want on a sunny Sunday afternoon. Staff were friendly and attentive, pub atmosphere...More

A local pub hidden down a quiet residential street just off Clapham Common, The Bobbin is a warm and friendly place to meet, drink and eat the very best seasonal food. We aim to to do justice to both the 'Gastro' and 'Pub' bits of the Gastropub! We hope you'll feel very welcome to come down for a quick pint as much as for a 3-course dinner. We are open for Lunch on Fridays and the Weekend and Dinner every evening.
