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.

    The bread and the pheasant pie with suet crust were especially good. Staff are friendly and attentive. The perfect neighbourhood restaurant.

    Great Sunday roast, although expensive for what it is - £48 for 2 people sharing the dish. Dessert and wine was fantastic, good addition to Abbeville Road.

    Incredible restaurant, my all time favourite. The octopus and dexters rib was fab and their negronis are second to none!

    Throughly enjoyed our evening at May the Fifteenth. Loved the duck liver pate starter and the slow cooked lamb dish for main course was also delicious. Highly recommend this restaurant.
