Charming service and good food. It wasn’t very good weather to be outside but that’s not their fault.

I've been a huge supporter of Arch since it opened, and then again when it reopened. The Fetch Bar area is second rate and made me feel very much like an unvalued customer. I certainly would not choose to go back there again. The service was slow and not in the least attentive. The area at the front of the Arch benefits from immediate awareness by staff. The Fetch Bar is absolutely just an add-on area to increase revenue without anything like the attention I have previously experienced.

Loved our birthday lunch at Arch Clapham. Went for son's 21st birthday, who appreciated the free glass of bubbly. Friendly welcome, great service and a relaxed vibe. The halloumi sticks were a favourite, incredible batter. Burgers and fries all tasty, and generous helpings. Great to eat outdoors in what felt like a surprisingly quiet afternoon spot to say it's such a busy area. Recommended!

First time here but definitely won’t be the last!! The service was brilliant! Niall was so attentive and fun and helpful... the allergen menus (gluten free) were super helpful! Having a range of gluten free and vegan food on hand so easily was fantastic.

We were served by a very attentive waitress Rebecca
A lovely touch was that the Chef (sorry did not get her name) came out and asked if we happy with our food and tweaked our desert - fab touch

Amazing service from the actress who’s name I’ve forgotten and Bernard was brilliant too.

2nd time visiting and it was brilliant. The staff are so attentive and the food was amazing. Great atmosphere and we had a heater over our racks which was a great touch considering the alfresco dining due to Covid. We had a great time and will be returning again. Booking is recommended as it was busy.

The service couldn't have really been better. Staff were so friendly and really went the extra mile. However, the food was so disappointing. The nachos were £8 but had basically zero cheese on. It was just normal nachos wirh some guacamole and sour cream on which clearly weren't homemade. It was only slightly warm and barely even toasted and also took a very long time to arrive. For the price of food and drink, it wasn't worth it in spite of the nice staff and atmosphere. Sadly, I wouldn't go back again.

From arrival to leaving, the service was friendly, attentive and welcoming.
Our dog was given fresh water and treats which was great!
We had brunch specials and enjoyed a great spot outside in the sun and a chilled Sunday. The food was fresh and well presented and probably the nicest fries I’ve had in a while!
Great location, great food, nice simple menu and perfect friendly service. Really good value! 100%!

Great staff, good food and really good cocktails. It just wasn’t clear when booking that bar seats means the other side of the building on a street that’s quite polluted and has like 4 tables so no ambiance.
