Balham Bowls Club – Balham

bowling16

It may be way down south, miles from anywhere but the Balham Bowls Club is a great pub. It’s pouring with rain but I’d arranged to have Sunday Lunch there as it was about time I made more effort to come south even in monumentally shit weather.  So just as I get there I get a call saying that my friends are all still at home eating gluten free pancakes, that’s bloody great. So out of 8 people I’m the only one here. Not to worry though this place is just great, there’s nowhere quite like it. It’s decorated in a theme somewhere between an old school and a sports club, like a set from the History Boys with gaudy furniture and tapestries, basically one giant junk shop neatly arranged. There are billiard tables and Chesterfield couches and the rooms are huge, only thing is it’s not very cosy but at least it’s not crowded.
