The Avalon SW12 9EB

Date: Sunday 29th July, 2012

Choice: Claire
Who was there: Claire, Justin, Joe, Angel & Ellen. (with loads of birthday guests)

Unfortunately we have not been having the best weather this year, actually we have had a pretty rubbish summer the past 4 years. So we were very happy to be inside this very cosy, welcoming pub a very short walk from Clapham South tube. It’s Claire’s birthday so we had many guests, but unfortunately Heather was on holiday in Tokyo and could not be there. To get down to the food, the roast beef was amazing (as you can see by the photo). A huge portion and loads of veggies( although Ellen got ripped off and only had 2 very small quarters of Potato. You can even get extra yorkshire for £1.50. It is on the menu as a side if you ordered something else you can still get a yorkie! The beef was very tender and the red wine gravy was amazing. Claire had pretty much the only veggie option, which was a goats cheese and tomato tart. On the menu it was supposed to have a pine nut dressing but Claire said she could not taste it, however the minted royal jersey potatoes delicious. The deserts were brilliant; A really soft Sticky Toffee Pudding with Vanilla ice cream, Apricot & Almond tart, And the Summer Berry Pavlova – all £5.50, there were several more desserts but these are the ones we had. Overall a brilliant pub. 

Mains: £13.50 for the Beef.
Desserts: £5.50
