Roundhouse pub – Wandsworth Common

Wondering where to go for Sunday dinner this weekend?

The Roundhouse Pub at Wandsworth Common is a five minute walk from Clapham Junction train station yet – being situated on the edge of Spencer Park – has something of a village feel to it.

With outdoor seating (on the busy Northside road, but with the greenery of Wandsworth Common in sight) this is a great pub to while away a Sunday afternoon.

I first stumbled across this pub a few years ago when K and I went to a Wandsworth Common beer festival at Le Gothique. Or rather, it was full and we didn’t get in.

It was fortuitous that The Roundhouse was nearby serving an interesting range of craft beers. And, as we discovered after bedding ourselves in for that particular Saturday afternoon, great food too.

On my most recent visit with S, we shared a starter of grilled Galician octopus with shallots, pea shoots, pickled cucumber and carrots @ £7.50 (as gorgeous and tender as it looks in the photo above). And for mains my sea trout with fennel, courgette, pomegranate, blood orange and salad herb dressing @ £13.00 was stunning (lots of lovely flavours that went really well together) and S thoroughly enjoyed her summer garden risotto with courgette, peas, red chard, leeks and pea puree @ £10.00.

The verdict: Great pub in a nice scenic location, that’s handy for Clapham Junction. Great choice of drinks, wines and beers (with real ales regularly changing) and seriously good pub grub.
