Balham is the more upmarket neighbour of Clapham with some of the most stunning properties in the borough. Great transport links (Northern line) or overground into Victoria, it's also the home of the famous Bedford Comedy Club.

Buzzy area for laid-back professionals

Balham is a fantastic area, with more of a laid-back vibe rather than clubs, there are ample quirky bars and great restaurants to choose from.


20 Bedford Hill London SW12 9RG

Located on a pedestrian friendly cobbled street in the heart of Balham, Milk boasts the best latte south of the river. Equally spectacular is the thoughtful menu options with organic ingredients sourced from local farms. Sunday brunch is offered all day, and it is impossible to order anything short of mouth-watering. Free WiFi is available, and great customer service is delivered by even better looking staff.

+ Don’t forget to get your frequent coffee buyer card stamped - the seventh cup is on M1LK!

The Regent

21 Chestnut Grove, London SW12 8JB

Though The Regent has served as Balham’s local for three short years, it has become a bit of an institution in its own right. Traditional pub fare is offered, and cosying up in one of the many oversized booths give The Regent its home-away-from-home feel. Pub goers can frequently catch football and rugby matches during the week, and party goers can dance to live or DJed music on the weekends.

+ Located a stone’s throw from Balham tube station, meeting here is convenient even if you don't live in the neighbourhood.

Dee Light Bakery

14 Ritherdon Road, London SW17 8QD

Dee Light Bakery is the realisation of a childhood dream for owner Dee Monteleone, who has been making cakes professionally for 16 years. Customers can expect quality and passion behind her recipes, which range from simple croissants and muffins to homemade pies, quiches, and freshly baked breads. Bespoke cakes are available for all occasions like weddings and birthdays, or if you’re in the mood to DIY, cake baking and decorating classes are offered.

+ Opens early every day in time for tea and (freshly baked!) toast.

The French Cafe

16-18 Ritherdon Rd, London SW17 8QD

The French Cafe is a short five minute walk from Balham tube, and it's just as much charming and tasty as it is good value for your money spent. Their specialty is weekend brunch, with Oeufs Francais and Oeufs Benedict being menu highlights. If dinner is what you’re after, the wine list is extensive, and they offer six different options for steak. Bon Appetite!

+ Generous portions and its down-to-earth vibe make The French Cafe a winner.


326 Balham High Road, London SW17 7AA

Fujisan offers sushi, sashimi and other Japanese dishes between Tooting and Balham until 11:00pm every night for less than you typically find in the city. Don't be fooled by the prices; the quality is excellent. Take-away is also available for a cosy night in with a great film; we recommend Jiro Dreams of Sushi.

+ Special lunch is available for £6!


169 Clapham High Street, London SW4 7SS
