Balham's Restaurants - a personal guide

How It Got Started

What You Need to Know

As a resident of Balham for over 30 years I have seen things come and go.  During lockdown the thing I missed the most was going out for dinner.  With lockdown over I set myself the challenge to eat at every restaurant in Balham and discovered that there were over 40.

To help support local business I thought I would set up a website dedicated to Balham restaurants where I could post reviews and give people a comprehensive list and contact details for every venue.

If you would like to blog your own reviews simply subscribe and I will send you an invitation to become an "eatmywayaroundbalham.com" blogger.
