Sister restaurant of highly acclaimed The Dairy, Counter Culture is a laidback snack bar overlooking Clapham Common. The best of the season’s produce is picked, fermented, cured and bottled, and served alongside meat, fish and vegetables to create delicious, simple snacks.

The Counter Culture menu is short but packed with flavour. Tuck into the likes of sour potato flat bread, with nduja, and cultured cream, beef tartare with bone marrow salad cream and caviar, or lamb kebab with pickled cabbage and a steamed bun. Sweet treats like strawberry and limoncello trifle round off the menu.

An intimate setting, wooden tables sit in view of the open kitchen. Large windows looking out onto the common add to the relaxed atmosphere.

Showcasing the dedication to produce that has seen The Dairy awarded such high praise, Counter Culture Clapham sits seconds from Clapham Common Tube Station.

    Amazing food and beautiful presentation, super friendly chef and waitress, and very reasonable prices. We got everything on the menu (minus the special), which was the perfect amount for two people. Definitely recommend - try to sit at the main counter so you can see the chef preparing everything.

    This was a great spot. Small plates to share and we ordered most of them. Everything we had was delicious. No idea how they made a simple flatbread taste so good. Our server was an absolute gem, very attentive and personable. Would go back in a heartbeat.

    I thought some of the dishes were quite small
    They did all taste good
    I thought the homemade chorizo was fatty and chewy
    It's a cute place and staff are very friendly
    I've been to the dairy next door a couple of times and it's been delicious
