London Happy Hour: The Oval Lounge

20 Aug

If you are looking for a little pub to chill on a weeknight – I would recommend The Oval Lounge in – you guessed it – Oval! It’s close to the station, and has a Happy hour until 7pm with £3 beers and £12 wine. A really cozy little venue (with twinkling lights in the beer garden!) to relax in.

The only let down is the food, pretty pricey for some average burgers (and one time I had the cheese board – it was boring and really not worth the money. No variation on the crackers and bread, just standard plain, no butter, no chutney. Basically a couple of slices of cheese and one segment of apple!) That said they do accept taste card on weeknights  which puts it more in the price range I would expect for the food.


Verdict: 8 / 10

Nearest Tube: Oval, Northern line. Address: 24 Clapham Road (continuation of Kennington Park Road), Kennington, London SW9 0JG|

Opening times: Mon-Fri 12pm, Sat & Sun 10am. Closing times: Mon-Thu 10pm, Fri-Sat 11.00pm & Sun 9pm

If you love a good old vintage steam fair, head down to the Imperial War museum this weekend to check out the Carters Steam Fair  It starts at 12, and is hosted in Geraldine Mary Harmsworth Park behind the museum and hopefully the weather will get better before then!





Weekend Diary: Kennington Village Fête, Sunday 15th May

11 May

If you live anywhere near Kennington/Elephant and Castle or Oval – you may know of a beautiful little gem called Cleaver Square. It’s a place where people mill around playing boules and sipping cider in the summer, and is surrounded by the most gorgeous (expensive!) houses. Many a night I have strolled trough just coveting the big kitchen islands and spacious 3-4 stories. A girl can dream!

Every year a village fête is hosted in the square with food and drinks from local vendors such as the Kennington Tandoori and The Lobster Pot, stalls, activities and general family fun.


The fête will run from 12-4pm and will be opened by MP Kate Hoey (don’t let that put you off!)

It’s very close to Kennington tube station, and directions are below!
