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.

    Interesting food and very friendly service. You have to be prepared for a v cramped experience although we were not at the bar which would have been better. bYO is a plus and menu v small . Decent enough but think I will be back at the Dairy next time for more choice and more room !

    Such a fun little place! Great atmosphere, lovely, friendly staff. We ordered everything on the menu between two - delicious small plates that kept on coming, with potato bread, eel & courgette carbonara and raf tomatoes with ricotta being particular stand-outs.

    Fantastic food, superb staff, could not recommend it more highly!

  • ((((( 4 May 2017 by Seema from London

    This tiny place has big impact small plates and a small but perfectly matched wine list. The lamb ragu was my favourite but it is not easy to choose one.
    The informal atmosphere and friendly team made it an amazing meal out.
