“A welcome recent addition to the South London drinking/dining scene, with a big glossy beer garden and other terraces to boot. Food is good too - there's a rotisserie and a grill with changing offerings, from mergueuz hot dog to whole seabass with a lime salad. An ideal spot in which to catch a tan, eat good food and - of course - be merry.”

“Enjoy rotisserie piglet and apple sauce in a bap at this newly landscaped sanctuary in Clapham. With table top parasols, a staoine fountain, ornate jardinieres (that's posh plant pots to you and me) and tumbling pansies, the pub's outside sapace looks like a scaled-down version of the garden's at Versailles. there are plenty of different seating areas, including some beautiful arm chairs in a secluded spot by the fountain - perfect for a secret rendezvous.”

“The Avalon's south-facing terraced garden is a much needed oasis in the heart of Balham. Set over three levels, there's plenty of space, lots of greenery and even a Roman-styled tiered fountain. From Thursday to Sunday there's a delicious Meditteranean grill.”

- London Evening Standard

“Look out folks, there's a hot new grill on the block. The lovely, newly landscaped garden at the back of The Avalon has it's own, dedicated 'garden menu' served 6-9pm Saturday and Sunday from a spanking-new, stainless steel barbeque. This includes a piping hot skewer of lamb souvlaki served on a round pitta bread with a greek-styled salad and bowl of tzatziki; the meat was nicely charred. The bap filled with shoulder of Middle White pork was also sensational. The salads being devoured at the next table almost had us ready to renounce the flesh; both the tabbouleh version and the Caesar looked great. Simpler snacks include chips (from the indoor kitchen), half pint of prawns and of course, ice cream - Jude's, in this case. Outside the weekend rush hours, the regular bar menu is served from the indoor kitchen. Table service makes it a very civilised affair, this is more of a jug-of-Pimm's joint than a packet-of-crisps-and-lager place.”

“Flush with the success of The Bolingbroke, the Renaissance Pubs team have transformed the insalubrious The George to The Avalon creating a contemporary-meets-Victorian take on grand pub with dining room and enticing menu. My veggie son gave the wild mushroom risotto and selection of Jude’s sorbets a resounding thumbs up too.”
