Description: What a pub...'The Nightingale'
Not only can you get a drink - you can also pick up your post - yep - at this pub in Balham you can if you so wish arrange with the landlord and post office to take delivery of packages whilst you are out, and you'll even get an email telling you that it's there!
And that's why it's the Publican's 'National community Pub of the year 2009' - 'The Nightingale' is a truly friendly and buzzing local pub loved by customers from all over London, old and new.
Built as a pub on the Old Park Estate in 1869, the Nightingale is a mid-Victorian cottage style pub and Grade II listed. It always serves a great pint of Young's and appears year after year in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide.
