Only a stone’s throw from Balham Station, situated just off the hustle and bustle of Balham High Road, Balham Bowls Club is a stunning public house at the heart of the Balham community. Since being taken under the wing of Antic London, this once highly respected clubhouse faithfully retains a large amount of its original décor, sporting memorabilia and quirky trinkets.
Honouring its reputation as a social hotspot, BBC (as it is known to the locals), is a warren of spacious rooms and cosy hangouts. Boasting a stunning restaurant, two bars, three grand hire spaces and beer garden at the rear, the BBC is perfect for every social occasion. The bar offers a wide variety of spirits, rotational wines, bottled beers and ciders. With our four real ales hand pumps serving Cask Marque certified local and regional ales, expect to be kept on your toes.
Our kitchen offers a snacking Bar Menu throughout the pub and sit-down Dining Menu, serving fresh seasonal British pub fare. Sunday’s are very much a family occasion. Round up the kids and the family pooch for a Sunday roast and a board game. Children allowed until 9pm and dogs allowed everywhere except the restaurant.
Throughout the week we offer a diverse programme of events suitable for all ages and interests. These include a quiz night every Tuesday, craft & vintage fairs, classes, community meetings and many more. To keep up to date with all our goings on, please visit our ‘What’s On’ page or ask one of our friendly team.
With our stunning array of hire rooms and cosy spaces, we accommodate for weddings, party bookings and socials, however big or small. For more details please visit ‘Venue Hire’.
Hi there Gary,
Just to thank you and the guys so much. They were amazing and played for longer than originally agreed. Charlotte was stunned and absolutely delighted, as was Val.
Band very professional and well presented. Would not hesitate to recommend them .
Just inside the main doors of the Balham Bowls Club is a pretty little room that they call The Presidents Lounge, we setup in this space for a recent wedding drinks reception. Quite central and intimate
Up on the first floor of the Balham Bowls Club, is a venue space that will make you want to have a party even if you hadn’t planned on having one! With a dance floor, stage, it’s own bar and toilets, the room can keep a party of up to 120 happy right through until the wee hours. Decorated in the same style as the rest of the pub, with birdcages hanging from the ceilings, flock wall paper and vintage furniture, the room is easily transformed into a beautiful space for a wedding reception, birthday party or social gathering But that’s not all, when not busy celebrating, the room lends itself to amongst other things; stand up comedy, vintage markets, open mic nights, classes, photo shoots and film screenings. The staff at the Bowls Club have bags of experience when it comes to events and will go the extra mile to ensure that yours runs as smoothly as possible, so if you are looking for that really special venue for a party with a difference, pop in and check out the Ballroom, it certainly wont disappoint!

Parking and off loading is a small challenge – there is a 2 bay parking spot not too far from the entrance. Waiting / offloading time is approx. 20mins. Parking can be found across the road in a pay and display car-park. Failing that, the option we chose was to find a free parking spot in one of the many local residential streets. If the bays are not available, be careful about parking or waiting outside the venue, as there are single red lines on the road, which is regularly patrolled by parking wardens
