The Avalon is endowed with an abundance of outside space. The Courtyard, is fully heated and covered, making it the perfect space to cosy up and meet friends for drinks or dinner. The buzzy Terrace is now fully covered and heated too, making it the ideal al fresco location during Covid times. Our wonderful rear Summer Garden has been rated by Time Out as one of London’s best. 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.”
“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.”

SUMMER GARDEN: OPEN APRIL – OCTOBER
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 when possible). 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 when possible).
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.
We are currently operating a first come first served basis for all tables.
