The Duke’s Head

In Pubs, Restaurants on August 11, 2010 at 10:33 am

The Duke’s Head in Putney is just a few minutes from Putney High Street, making it very easy to walk to from Putney Bridge tube, Putney (overground) train and East Putney tube stations.  It’s a lovely pub with a really nice view of the river so I suggest to try to get a table nearest the window when making a reservation (which I highly recommend doing).  They have a really nice selection of starters, mains and desserts as well as a nice choice of foods like burgers and ribeye steak prepared on the grill.  If you’d like to take a stroll after your meal, head toward Putney Bridge and cross over to Bishop’s Park.

The Waterfront

In Pubs, Restaurants on August 10, 2010 at 2:30 pm

The Waterfront is one of the many Young’s pubs throughout London and in my opinion one of the nicest.   Inside seating consists of booths, tables and a lounge / bar area while the outside is equipped with tables and umbrellas with a view of the riverside walk. It’s located in Battersea Reach, where all the new developments are, which means it is well-kept and in a residential area.  And, because it’s not on a high street or main road, the pub’s hidden location makes it feel cozier. You’ll most likely see children playing and riding their bikes along the riverside.  In addition to their a la carte menu, they also offer daily lunch specials for £6.50 each and have a separate kid’s menu.

The Ship

In Pubs, Restaurants on August 9, 2010 at 2:23 am

The Ship, located in Wandsworth, is a pub/restaurant popular for its BBQ and outdoor seating during the spring and summer seasons.  They have both a BBQ menu (if you’d like to order straight from the grill) and a complete restaurant menu featuring daily specials, including Sunday roast.  Staff is friendly and it’s always busy, especially after work and on the weekends, however, there’s ample space should you decide last-minute to walk in and have a bite.  It’s situated on the river which means you can take a stroll in either direction toward Wandsworth Park or Battersea, or if you’d like, you can cross Wandsworth Bridge and head to Chelsea and Fulham.

Note:  All portions listed in their menu are adult sized but they do offer kid’s sized portions too on select items such as risotto, fish and chips, etc.

The Draft House

In Pubs on June 20, 2010 at 10:22 pm

About a 12 minute walk from Clapham Junction Station, The Draft House is one of the most popular pubs in Battersea.  With 18 beer on tap it’s surely a hot spot – for singles and families alike.  Although it is extremely kid-friendly they unfortunately do not offer a kid’s menu, which would be absolutely fantastic!   Definitely take a peek at their  full menu which consists of a brunch selection (Saturday & Sunday), Sunday roast and even a lunch menu with the usual fish n chips and their Draft House Burger topped with a blue cheese mayo – scrummy!   Note that there is one other location in Westbridge.

Common Ground Cafe Bar

In Cafes & bakeries, Indoor fun, Outdoor fun, Parks, Pubs on April 24, 2010 at 10:17 pm

This is a perfect spot for both parents and children.  The Common Ground is nestled in Wandsworth Common just off Dorlcote Road.  It’s a cafe/bar which means they serve anything from a cup of tea to bottled beer or a glass of wine.  I have yet to try any of their menu items but by the way it looks everyone is sure to find something to cut their appetite.  Inside there are tables in the front of house and in the back as well as outside.  What’s really cool is that they also supply kids with toys such as activity cubes and building blocks.  Clever if you ask me.  They also have a class schedule offering Action Amanda activities throughout the week for babies and toddlers on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday (best suitable from 6 months to 4 years old).   On Wednesday they have a Blueberry Playsong session for babies over 12 months old, ideal for those babies who love music!  And after a session of play take your little one to the playground just a few feet away!

The Dysart Arms

In Pubs on March 31, 2010 at 1:33 pm

We had roast here a few weeks ago and were impressed by both the food and amenities.  Each bathroom (men’s and women’s) contains a baby changing area and the pub itself is very cozy and comfortable.  It feels as if you’re in someone’s home.  Across the street is a small playground set within Richmond Park, perfect for the kids to run around or get on a swing on a nice, warm day.  The pub is easily accessible via bus from Richmond train station but beware of Sunday drivers, traffic can make the commute about 30 minutes longer than expected.  However, if you’d like to bypass this, feel free to walk along the River or in the park.  Great place for lunch and/or dinner.   Take a look at their Children’s Policy before visiting, reservations needed.
