The Avalon is endowed with an abundance of outside space. The wonderful rear Garden, rated by Time Out as one of London’s best, recently underwent a complete refurbishment introducing a brand new al fresco bar and kitchen, wooden booths and a giant feasting table. If you haven’t caught the last of the rays here after work or spent a lazy Saturday here with friends, you’re missing out.

“Like the front terrace? You’ve seen nothing yet. How about the pretty side garden? Just wait. Through the back is not just the best pub garden in Balham, but one of the best in London.”

Our rear garden rocks. Stunning, secluded and surrounded by mature trees and plants, it is extremely easy to forget you are London.

Split into three different areas, there is a lounge filled with giant cushions at the back, perfect for parties (for up to 30 people) or just soaking up that precious British sunshine.

In the centre, there is a selection of beautiful wooden booths which can be reserved for dining and drinking. There’s even a giant feasting table designed for bigger celebrations (for up to 30 people) or making new summer friends.

At the front, there is an alfresco bar, the ideal spot to while away gloriously sunny days. Our full a la carte and small plates menu is served outside. There is a party menu for larger groups, where we even do hog roasts.

To book a booth or an area please call the pub on 020 8675 8613.


The Avalon Courtyard has had a makeover in time for summer. It is an ideal spot to escape the hustle and bustle of London and relax with a drink and good company. Located just off the main bar, it’s covered and heated plus you can book a booth if your partial to a guaranteed seat. You can even hire the entire space for parties.


The Terrace is the obvious place to meet friends, have a drink or bite to eat, and watch the world go by. It’s well covered unless the sun’s out, and heaters keep the drinkers and smokers comfortable all year round. Perfect for large groups on a night out.



“With enough plants, shrubs and decking to make Alan Titchmarsh go weak at the knees, it’s an idyllic place to enjoy top pub grub in the sun.”
