The Bobbin or The Tim Bobbin – what’s in a name?
The pub has been here for over a hundred years and was called The Tim Bobbin until 2010 when Tim went on sabbatical.

Well, he’s now back above the door! Tim Bobbin – poet, painter, satirist and the “patron saint of drinkers” apparently!

I’m sure he would be very proud to be back!

Inside, we’re proud to offer Clapham Old Town a charming neighbourhood pub with a Mediterranean seasonal menu, great tasting beer and a carefully selected international wine list.

We hope to see you soon.

For all reservations, please book here


We run a seasonal Mediterranean-inspired menu with daily specials throughout the week and the Sunday menu includes our hugely popular Roast Rump of Beef with all the trimmings.


Discover more about our pub in the gallery section.

    The food is definitely worth a try: all freshly cooked, on a daily changing menu. Find a table at the back for full-blown meals of top charcuterie platters, good roasts & lemon pies. For something more casual, the old-fashioned wood-lined bar is where to head; there are classy bar snacks to soak up the real ale. Including the wine list, it’s all ‘remarkably good value’ – & ‘rather fun’ to boot
    In a quiet residential street not far from Clapham Common, The Bobbin is an appealing neighbourhood gastropub. It has a changing rota of proper ales (perhaps St Austell Tribute or something from Sambrooks), good wines by the glass, a cosy front room, and an airy conservatory at the rear
