“Everyone needs a relaxed local hangout you can always rely on as second living room at the weekend, and Ben's Canteen provides that for many Clapham Junction residents. Settle down on a reclaimed school chair at a wooden table, embrace the Scandinavian surrounding and tuck in to an indulgent brunch with an epic bloody Mary. Their Christmas menu is worth trying too - we love the show stopping turkey burger and Christmas pudding ice cream.”
