Al fresco spots in Clapham

Sunny season is officially here! If you are after some traps to soak up the rays whilst munching some top quality food, we’ve got you.


There is no better people watching spot than this on the Pavement. Minnow not only offers the perfect nose-ing oppertunity, but it also offers a pretty delicious brunch. Or lunch. Their dinner is worth checking out too actually. What we are saying is that whatever the time is, if the sun is shining then you can’t go wrong with Minnow.

With it’s iconic location on the High Street, Eco is a hub when it gets warm. Taking over the streets with their seating, taking over our hearts with their pizza.

Clapham North

The perfect location to get warm and fuzzy in the sunshine- it’s just a quick dash to the tube home when the heat goes.

Choose to sit out front if you want to be apart of the buzz of a busy Clapham, or sit in their secret garden if you’d rather a more secluded sun trap. Either way, you can guarantee really great food and coffee. And vibes.

The Terrace by Megan’s

It’s literally made for outdoor dining. The terrace is the closest you can get to a picnic without actually having a picnic. You get all the benefits of being surrounded by a big green space without having to bring a scarf to sit on. Perfect.

The Windmill

How good does an al fresco roast sound? Now imagine it’s a roast from the Windmill. And you’re probably surrounded by dogs. Say no more.

The Saxon

Want to be even closer to the sun now it’s out and about? The Saxon’s rooftop is where you want to be. Perfect for those balmy summer evenings and bottomless brunches. And you might even get a tan too.

Common Clapham

Here’s a perfect one for that accidental sundowner. Great views over the common with excellent wine and cocktails to really rose tint it all.

Joe Public

Looking for a quick bite in the thrumming heart of Clapham? Look no further than Joe’s. Pick up a slice and a can of something fizzy and sit out on their benches for an easy al fresco.

It is always extra fun here. Fun people watching, fun cocktails, fun music. Every. Single. Night.

Nue Ground

Nothings says ‘easy like Sunday’ like sitting out on Abbeville road with a nourishing brunch plate from Nue Ground. Wholesome.

The Common

We don’t need to tell you that sometimes the best dining you can do is sitting on the grass with your shoes off and the ants on your toes. Nature, right? In Clapham we are lucky enough to be treated to a big old Common, which means picnics are very much a possibility. For extra points, pick up one of Cher Thai’s picnic boxes and take to the great outdoors.

The Rose & Crown

Sip on an ice cold pint whilst watching the world go by. Come for the beer, stick around for the food when you get munchy.

Another cheery, beery spot. Perfect if you’re in Clapham South with a big group.

Common Ground

Perfect for those post tennis session coffee needs. Take a pew in the little garden and watch other people get put through their paces on the court.

No. 32

Another spot you could easily spend the day at. Start with brunch, finish with dinner. All whilst sitting out on the Pavement. Want a change of scene? Head up to their roof terrace. Idillic.

In the perfect little street-side sun-trap, ARCH is a cracking spot to get the sunnies on. And you’re just a stones throw from all the other Clapham delights of an evening when things get a bit later.

Especially fun as the sun goes down, the outdoor terrace at Mommi is heated and covered when it needs to be, so no stress if the weather takes a turn!

The Bridge

For a properly good, raucous time, The Bridge is your place. If you’re in need of a bit of a Sunday hair of the dog then check out their all day happy hour. What a way to send out the weekend.
