    Waited an hour and a half for our main course, three of us then left food as it was pretty poor. Couldn't use the taste card as it was a Sunday, which they do say in the small print but not where the rules normally are, e.g. the number of people, which means you don't see it when using a mobile phone so it feels dishonest.

    Can’t recommend this pub enough! Visited last week. Staff were ultra friendly but not in your face. The dining room is gorgeous and there is an amazing luscious secret garden out the back.

    Food was very reasonable with the tastecard discount, we really enjoyed our steak and chips and you have to try their almond and white chocolate cheesecake.

    Will be coming back very soon. "

    I live just round the corner from The Avalon so hoped it might become a regular haunt. Unfortunately for them, based on tonight's experience it won't be. Firstly an unpleasant smell greeted us when we walked through the door, after being showed to our table it took a long time to have our order taken. Our steaks arrived before our wine did and we had to re-ask for the wine. The food was luke warm, the steak was ok, the service was very very slow and I found our main waiter to be particularly rude. If it hadn't been on tastecard I would have been very disappointed. We didn't pay the 12.5% service charge and we won't be returning. "

  • "My new favourite restaurant! I love the stylish interior of this place, especially the tiled dining room. Was seriously impressed with the food, especially the vegetarian option I had which was roast pumpkin, Portobello mushroom and halloumi with pomegranate and chimichurri - not many other 'gastro pubs' similar to The Avalon put as much thought into their veggie options! The sticky toffee pud was amazing too! My only (small) criticism was that a smoked mackerel salad we ordered as a starter seemed to be missing it's advertised horseradish dressing, but it was still great. Three courses, a carafe of wine and a tea came to approx. £40 (with service) using our taste card - well worth it. Rachel   "

  • "The Avalon is one of my favourite pubs.  It has a great atmosphere and is very popular with all my friends.  The back garden is huge and very pretty, I have spent many a sunny afternoon sitting out there, enjoying a drink or two.  In the winter the roasts are great, they have some really nice red wine to go with it too! The food is evidently high quality and the service is friendly without being intrusive. My only comment would be that some of the food is slightly overpriced in comparison with similar pubs, however, a taste card giving you 50% will ease the pain significantly. Highly recommended place.

  • Mike said: "Wouldn't go again
    Waited an hour and a half for our main course, three of us then left food as it was pretty poor. Couldn't use the taste card as it was a Sunday, which they do say in the small print but not where the rules normally are, e.g. the number of people, which means you don't see it when using a mobile phone so it feels dishonest.

    Been here a few times but never had the steak before. Probably one of the best steaks I've had in a long time (including at some of the big steak restaurants in the city). Will definitely be going back more.

    Sticky toffee pudding sauce was slightly burnt but still tasted good. "

    Been here a few times great atmosphere. Unfortunately the food is hit or miss. Another problem is they only take tastecard during the week which is annoying. But just for a few drinks there beer garden is great. "

    I have revisited this place 3 times already and I love it.

    The steak is amazing and so cheap with the 50% off.

    Staff are very good, not pushy and seemed fine to give the discount.

    Definitely worth a visit "

    This pub, close to Clapham south tube, has a magnificent garden to the rear making it great for eating outside when the sun returns.

    Food is good and excellent service is on hand.

    Anna B was our charming waitress recently. "

    Can’t recommend this pub enough! Visited last week. Staff were ultra friendly but not in your face. The dining room is gorgeous and there is an amazing luscious secret garden out the back.

    Food was very reasonable with the tastecard discount, we really enjoyed our steak and chips and you have to try their almond and white chocolate cheesecake.

    Will be coming back very soon. "

  • Beth said: "Food ok. Service not ok
    I live just round the corner from The Avalon so hoped it might become a regular haunt. Unfortunately for them, based on tonight's experience it won't be. Firstly an unpleasant smell greeted us when we walked through the door, after being showed to our table it took a long time to have our order taken. Our steaks arrived before our wine did and we had to re-ask for the wine. The food was luke warm, the steak was ok, the service was very very slow and I found our main waiter to be particularly rude. If it hadn't been on tastecard I would have been very disappointed. We didn't pay the 12.5% service charge and we won't be returning. "

  • "My new favourite restaurant! I love the stylish interior of this place, especially the tiled dining room. Was seriously impressed with the food, especially the vegetarian option I had which was roast pumpkin, Portobello mushroom and halloumi with pomegranate and chimichurri - not many other 'gastro pubs' similar to The Avalon put as much thought into their veggie options! The sticky toffee pud was amazing too! My only (small) criticism was that a smoked mackerel salad we ordered as a starter seemed to be missing it's advertised horseradish dressing, but it was still great. Three courses, a carafe of wine and a tea came to approx. £40 (with service) using our taste card - well worth it. Rachel   "

  • "The Avalon is one of my favourite pubs.  It has a great atmosphere and is very popular with all my friends.  The back garden is huge and very pretty, I have spent many a sunny afternoon sitting out there, enjoying a drink or two.  In the winter the roasts are great, they have some really nice red wine to go with it too! The food is evidently high quality and the service is friendly without being intrusive. My only comment would be that some of the food is slightly overpriced in comparison with similar pubs, however, a taste card giving you 50% will ease the pain significantly. Highly recommended place. Sarah "
