The Morning After in S.W. London
|| It’s the morning
after the night before and suddenly your head feels
like it’s been insulated with Play-Doh.
Time for some quick thinking and some well-earned comfort
food to get you back on your feet.
If it’s Sunday there’s a range of traditional
British pubs serving everything from your classic
roast and veg option to those greasy
fry-ups and all day breakfasts.
The Alexandra [map],
Clapham Common Southside, is one such pub. This really
is a no-frills establishment. Staff are friendly and keen
to help and there’s a great menu for hearty eaters
in search of full dinner plates. There’s the essential wide screen TV too for Sunday afternoon footy to
go with your roast and recovery.
Ambience is key at The Frog and Forget-Me-Not [map],
The Pavement. Here you’ll find those comfortable
large leather sofas that are perfect when all of your
energy is used up just walking to the bar. Unwind with
a coffee, hair of the dog, or juice drink and read the
Sunday papers. Diners will be pleased to know that there’s
a great range of healthier options here including a dedicated Thai menu to spice up your afternoon and blow away
If nothing can placate you quite like a fry-up check out The Phoenix Café [map] , close by, which is perfect
for those in search of some hearty nosh. Choose from full
all-day breakfasts, or sausage and tomato, and bacon and
mushroom sandwiches. There’s also traditional breakfast
tea and some veggie options available here.
Hair of the dog might not be everybody’s ideal hangover
cure (particularly doctors and health professionals) but
if you’re really keen to get the party started again
head to The White Horse Fulham [map],
Parsons Green, SW6, for a vast array of alcohol options.
Choose from more than 80 beers and 80 wines including
vintage. If this isn't enough to turn your stomach you’ll
be pleased to know that there’s also an impressive
menu of modern European cuisine and a tempting
dessert menu for those keen to get a much-needed sugar
