About Arlo's

We source our glorious beef from farms in Yorkshire, Northern Ireland and the Scottish Highlands. Steak from traditional native British breeds - because we think they're the best - slowly reared on a natural diet of grass and hay and then served quickly & simply.

Brunch is a huge focus at Arlo's and we're proud to have been named as one of London's best brunches.

We’re also all about family and quality and we've developed a fantastic “Little Arlo’s” menu for your little ones, complete with crayons and stickers designed to entertain them and to give you a few minutes' calm at the same time!

The steak was really good, cooked to perfection, the sides were right on the spot and the chocolate brownie was absolutely amazing!
All done with caring, attentive service. Will definitely come back!

Excellent steak. Nice variety of sides. Good for cocktails too. If I had to make a minor suggestion for improvement, it would be nice to offer cheese as well as sweet desserts for afters.

First visit to this local steak restaurant and will certainly go again. Great friendly service from the greeting and right through the meal. Just the right amount of attention without interrupting our conversation.
We had steak chips and salad. A simple meal cooked perfectly. Great Malbec.
Can’t wait to return and sample the brunch menu which looks great.

We went to Arlos to celebrate an anniversary. It was a great experience! Great menu, friendly and efficient service and they greeted us with complementary bubbly which was a lovely touch. The resteraunt itself has a great vibe and the food was tasty and good size portions and the meal service was well paced. The steak is one of the best i have had for a while and the dessert was generous sized but very tasty. We will go back and would highly recommend.

Move over Flat Iron, Arlo's is here to stay!!

My other half and I had a fantastic meal at Arlo's last week. It was refreshing to be eating at an independent restaurant who are clearly very passionate about their food. No frills, not tricks, just good food, with even better service!

We both had to Decker steak with chips and a bottle of the house Malbec and it was faultless! The steaks were delicious, the sides were great and the wine was a perfect match.

We were served by a lovely American girl who could not have been more friendly and knowledgeable about the steaks. It was clear she loved the food there just as much as we did.

I love Arlo's. It's a fantastic local restaurant that knocks the spots of it's Balham steak rivals. Great for dinner but I also enjoy brunch, which is spectacular.

Although a very small menu, the steaks were excellent, the service very friendly and efficient. Nice atmosphere, but maybe the lighting for dinner could be turned down a notch! The house Malbec was outstanding!

This was our 6th time to ARLOS. There was 9 of us - parents, children, singleton amd and granny joined as a surprise! The staff (all always) were completely charmimg and just squeezed us all in. We had a wonderful time. Great food, good wine but its the staff that deserve all the top marks. We will be returning.

YES, yes really yes. There are lots of brunch spots in Balham and, in a crowded market, Arlo's stands out and serves a different kind of brunch We had a croque moosieur, sort of like a patty melt, and the Other Arlo's - basically their full veggie breakfast. Both were delicious, the service is really friendly - not the "you're lucky to be here of some places" - and very welcoming. We'll definitely be back soon
