    Absolutely fab Sunday roast chicken with Yorkshire pudding, honey roasted carrots and parsnips, roast potatoes, and braised red cabbage. They don't just do great cocktails here!

    The bottled beers are really where it’s at, with some really unusual options like the Grozet Gooseberry ale http://barchick.com/find-a-bar/london/powder-keg-diplomacy-p-k-d

    Seven minutes walk from Clapham Junction Station you’ll find Colonial-esque PDK aka Powder Keg Diplomacy. Have a homemade ginger beer, or work your way through their enormous beer selection. Read more

    Love the American 1920s settings. Great beer menu too. Mojitos are decent and strong too. One of my fav locals. Discovered them the very opening day a year ago.

    Great when it's a bit quieter on a week day. I really liked the "Queen Anne's revenge" cocktail but it is soon to come off the menu, so get involved!

    Great food, well sourced. Service is super friendly (if occasionally sketchy). Friday night they turn the tables, so get a later booking. Avoid the Indian Zinfandel.

    Hot head bartender Matt Roberts makes his own liqueurs, cordials, bitters, and shrubs, so if you’re stuck for conversation just ask him about all of those! But seriously, the drinks are BANGING Read more

    Conversation won’t run dry with such eclectic surroundings, so not only will you have lots to chat about with a blind date, you'll also both look great with such sexy dim lighting Read more

    Book a table in the conservatory. The food and cocktails are stunning. Try the oysters and the scallops to start. A+

    Nice atmosphere, friendly staff. Some top beers and a decent bloody mary. My only criticism would be that it is a bit pricey.
