After a great walk in Wimbledon Common exploring the paths and hidden history, visiting the Dog and Fox for a pie and a pint is very well deserved. Their range of beers including the local favourites from Wimbledon Brewery are available and their menu has a lot of great meaty dishes (and of course vegetarian options) to satisfy the windswept walkers. Their steak and ale pie is a monster of a meal especially as it’s served with mashed potato and a lot of gravy! Not sure what ale to drink with it? Ask the staff. They certainly know their beers and ales!

The Rose & Crown is a very special place to eat and drink and their food is definitely worth a visit if you haven’t already.
Their English breakfast is a gorgeous way to start the day and will fill you up for a long walk around Wimbledon Common. They are also dog friendly so the atmosphere inside is always a very friendly happy one. If you don’t fancy a full English breakfast then definitely try out their brioche French toast served with streaky bacon.

The Ivy Cafe has definitely proved to be a hub of Wimbledon Village when it comes to food and drink for me and I love any excuse to visit.
Their use of seasonal food to create their dishes is inspiring and really helps to encourage you to embrace the current season and the change in weather. This is why I love visiting after a walk on the common as their food refelects the time of year so well making it a fully mindful meal.

It’s already a bit colder but I am rather glad as this is my favourite time of year. Autumn makes Wimbledon Village seem even more removed from the hustle and bustle of London. The leaves are changing colours so take the opportunity to walk around the common and end up at one of the pubs for a delicious pub lunch. Don’t forget this weekend is Wimbledon and Putney Common’s Open Day so it’s a great day to explore and celebrate.
