Looks cute from the outside but quite shabby and run down when you go in. Food was very disappointing, the roast was extremely salty and the pasta was like Tesco pasta dumped in a pool of water on the plate. More expensive than other pubs...More

Went here for a Sunday roast with a few friends and was quite disappointed. The pub isn’t as much shabby chic as it’s run down and not looked after. I found the staff to be particularly disinterested, not particularly friendly and on the whole, quite...More

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

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.
