Formerly named The Abbeville, May The Fifteenth was winner of Time Out's Best New Local Restaurant 2012. This wonderfully charming bistro changes its menu daily, and serves wines from small producers.

Celebrated creativity goes into the May The Fifteenth menu, with exciting changes made every day. Bold European flavours feature throughout, starting with small plates like grilled carrots, dandelion, cobnuts and ricotta, as well as pork and prune terrine. There are options like Cornish Jack crab with chips and mayo on the mains list, as well as sharing specialities such as suet-crusted steak and Guinness pie.

British dessert recipes are given gourmet makeovers at May The Fifteenth Clapham, including chocolate pot with shortbread, and buttermilk pudding with poached pear, damson and hazelnuts. The wine selection is a real highlight, and there are also craft beers from small suppliers, and inventive cocktails.

An intimate setting for wholesome European flavours, May The Fifteenth London is a Clapham dining hotspot, and sits 10 minutes' walk from Clapham South Tube Station.

    May 15th is our favourite local restaurant. Great service, great wines and most of all top food.
    Go for the pies for two people but they run out, so get in quickly!

    Wonderful, warming meal, perfect winter feast. Shoulder of Swaledale lamb is a standout dish. Sharing dishes and vegetable dishes are also delicious. The chips are out of this world. Service was excellent, very helpful. Convivial, relaxed atmosphere.
