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.

    I loved all the dishes, but brioche with pudding just melted my heart :). I am certain that this was my best food experience in 2 years!

    Absolutely perfect. Felt immediately welcome and the food/atmosphere (which could have been well intimidating given the quality of the food) was like a second home instantly.

    I've been to Counter Culture with my wife 3 times - and each and every time we've been we've had a great time. The food is always brilliant - the atmosphere is always fun - and for the quality of the food we think very good value. You can bring your own wine and pay corkage of just £10 which is also brilliant! Highly recommended. The venue is very small though - so do make sure you book if you want a spot!

    Amazing food and really great staff, the chef was very chatty and interesting.

  • ((((( 27 January 2017 by Amelia Hagelin from London

    Food was great. Better than The Dairy in some ways and infinitely better than The Manor which I found pretty awful. Everything was delicious, couldn't fault anything. Wouldn't have minded larger napkins as I was basically eating off my knees (which was fine!). Coco stole the show though - she's a keeper - careful or she might be poached!!
