Very enjoyable dinner, the lamb was amazing. Went on Valentines Day and the restaurant provides complimentary aperitifs which was a nice touch.

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.

    Excellent. The Swaledale Lamb is our firm favourite, way better than any pub roast.

    Delicious hearty fare. Pigs cheeks were moist and tender in a rich sauce. Others had cassoulet which got the thumbs up. Service friendly and efficient. Good atmosphere.

    That was such a wonderful lunch! Thank you so much for looking after us. We were a party of 6, one celiac, one vegetarian, one pregnant and we were all served to our satisfaction. The lamb was spectacular, i loved the cabbage. The buttermilk rhubarb pudding was stunning, shame there wasn't enough for three, only 2 dishes were left at 3pm.
    Staff was friendly, the lady could have been a bit more smiley, maybe she was stressed, it was quite busy.
    I am very into wine and would have loved to get more service about what to chose when i asked to help me picking the wine.

    Very good and friendly service, interesting wine list (staff knowledgable about it) and excellent food. Seven hour lamb was generous for two people and delicious for a winter evening.
