Have a Ball in Balham

6 places to take your pooch in this South London District.


Cocktails, brunch and much more at Exhibit Bar

This vibrant bar over two floors is light and spacious with plenty of covered outdoor space too!
Four Legged Foodies are welcome everywhere and will be greeted with fresh water and treats. The humans were also offered extra bacon so they could share with us, just make sure you get it as we know what these greedy humans are like.
Speaking of the humans, they enjoyed a most delicious brunch, washed down with cocktails.

The Exhibit has a great private hire space which is perfect for doggie parties and they even have a dog friendly cinema! It is also handy if you have a chauffeur as it is next to Sainsbury's car park where you can park free for 2 hours.

Doggie Sunday Roast at The Devonshire

If you can think of a better way to spend a Sunday than having a roast dinner at the pub then let us know because we can't! Especially when it's The Devonshire where Four Legged Foodies get their very own roast. There is also a table where we can help ourselves to treats and water.

The pub is very large with areas either side of an impressive bar, some tables outside the front and a large rear garden with some covered booths. The humans may be greedy but they do have high standards and they said the Sunday Roast was one of the best ones they had. We are not so fussy but definitely recommend the chicken doggie roast!

Spot some famous faces at The Bedford

This iconic pub has been around since the 19th century! It is famous for hosting cabaret and live music but is also very welcoming to Four Legged Foodies.
We are requested to leave the dining room to humans without pooches (who are these people??) but we can sit wherever we want in the large bar area.

The human food has a Mediterranean vibe with some British classics thrown in and fresh handmade pizza.

Just beware that it can get very busy and noisy on cabaret nights but you might get lucky and bump into Ed Sheeran!

Get your ice cream fix at Jefferson's

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!! Well it's more of a bark with us but we love it as much as the humans do.

This gorgeous place not only serves up the best ice cream but also great coffee and desserts. The humans say everyone with a sweet tooth just has to try the waffles!

Now we just have to persuade them to make a doggie ice cream and life will be complete.

A taste of sunshine at Megan's

You can't go to Balham without visiting London's dog friendliest restaurant group.
Megan's serve food from sunny places and we could all do with a bit of vitamin D!

Pooches of all shapes and sizes are most welcome at all Megan's restaurants and will receive bucket loads of attention plus treats and a bed to chill out in.
