A seductive, energetic brasserie that stays open late into the night, Balans Soho Society Clapham looks out onto Clapham Common, and offers up gourmet American and international recipes. There is al fresco seating that is a hugely popular spot for group drinks, and people-watching.

Offering breakfast, lunch, dinner, and morale boosting cocktails, the Balans Soho Society menu reflects the restaurant’s libertine outlook. Savour the pulled pork wrap with bourbon-flamed barbecue sauce and triple-cooked chips, Cornish crab linguine with chilli, or the Infamous Balans Burger, packed with Swiss cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomato, dill pickle and red onion. Brunches here are hugely popular, with classic recipes like eggs Benedict sitting alongside more contemporary options, like Cornish crab with pink grapefruit, squid ink crackers, avocado purée, and wood sorrel.

The plush interior at Balans Soho Society in Clapham provides the perfect spot to sample something indulgent from the eclectic cocktail list. Alongside the fine wine selection at the bar, there are a great selection of wonderfully inventive signature cocktails.

With a buzzing atmosphere and bohemian yet luxurious feel, Balans Soho Society Clapham is less than a minute's walk from Clapham Common Tube Station.

    Thoroughly pleasant dinner. Such friendly staff, chatty and fun, without being too intrusive.
    Food and wine delicious.
    Had been far too long since our last dinner here.
    Manchego and Serrano ham croquettes are Delicious.

    The meal was nice but there was a bit too much upselling by the waiter. If I want extra food or a larger size drink I will ask. You do not need to press me for more when I make a specific order. I felt a bit pressurised by it all and it detracted from the experience.

    It was perfect. The service was amazing, the decor lush and the food even more so. We absolutely loved every minute.

    The food was really bad. We had to send all are food back for being overcooked and the portions were so small.

    The food is overpriced and so are the drinks.

    Never again.

    Love this restaurant and now that its dog friendly it will be my regular weekend place. The brunch is great and the staff are lovely.

    Great venue and friendly staff food great too. Service speed very slow, can't believe you take order on paper when technology options are far more efficient.

    So delighted you allow dogs. Great service. Would like to see more mains options, especially if a vegan and healthy variety. Also wanted a alcohol free beer but you don't offer this. Love the venue, I had the avocado bruschetta with poached eggs and it was yummy. See you again soon.

    The new restaurant recently opened as another addition to the Balans chain.
    The staff are well trained and knowledgeable about drinks and food as you would expect. And service is amazing. We went on a Thursday eve and the restaurant was packed, if not a little too noisy it was sometimes difficult to hear the person across the table or even the waiter.
    It might have been an off day for the chef but our food was pretty awful. Something I was surprised about as it's nearly the same menu as the other 2 restaurants in Soho which food is consistently good.
    I had the duck which appeared beautifully cooked on the plate but most of it was like eating a piece of tough leather. The potatoes were bruised and black in places too. My dining guest had seared tuna steak cooked rare, but it came out looking rather grey and was cooked through to an inch of its life. Vegetables were either over cooked and floppy or not cooked enough and barely edible. For dessert we shared a Vanilla Panna cotta which was also very disappointing. I fear too much gelatin was used which made the creaminess more solid and like a goats cheese consistency that you actually had to chew instead of the smoothness and creamy panna cotta should be. On a lighter note the cocktails and wine were lovely, but perhaps they need to iron out the food and menu incredients and methods moving forward.
    I was told by our server at the end that breakfast and lunch is a lot better than the dinner!
    Perhaps next time it's safer to order a burger and chips. What can go wrong.
