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.

    Don't think I'll be returning here, my midweek lunch experience was not great. The service was fine and the waiter nice but my food was fairly disappointing. Firstly, I was planning to have the vegetarian main course - a cheese and tomato tart until I saw it was £16! Okay the waiter said it was special cheese and tomatoes but my friend ordered it and it was basically a rectangle of puff pastry with -yes- cheese and tomatoes on top. A generous helping but not worth the price. I had two starters - croquetas which were fine and a kohlrabi and radish salad which was so swimming in olive oil I had to shake every piece of food before I could eat it and I love oil. Massive pool left on the plate when I'd finished. Didn't bother with desert as nothing really appealed.

    This is a real gem of a restaurant. Possibly my parents favourite, every time they come to visit they want to come to may the fifteenth. Unfortunately we seem to be late for our booking most of the time but that is never an issue, hopefully we won't make that a permanent habit but it is great to know that we don't have to rush. The guys are always friendly and the food and wine is amazing. Thank you guys.

    Took a friend here for her birthday dinner. Told the staff in advance and they were so fantastic in making her feel special. Staff so friednly and knowledgeable. Fantstic menu with the perfect number of dishes to choose from (not too many) and all simple and in season. We shared a few dfferent starters including Croquetas, whole burrata with the most delicious accompaniment of pickled fennel, chervil and basil and a scrummy asparagus dish. Then I had who dover sole for mains, perfectly coooked and so tasty. Great wine and drinks menu too, great atmosphere and friendly staff. Oh and the best bit, they let me bring my dog! I will certainly be back.

    Simply the best local restaurant in Abbeville village. Creative cuisine with honest prices and tasty products. Menu changes periodically. May the 15th will certainly surprise you. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The restaurant belongs to former employees. My partner and I have made it our local cantine. Just fabulous food experience, well recommended!!
