Lily's Restaurant Clapham Common 5 Stars Review Rating.

We have been to Lily's Restaurant on a number of occasions and have always found it an impeccable experience. The staff are well trained, friendly and are genuinely pleased to see you. If you, like us, love seafood its a real treat and a definite place to visit. Its above the Frog Pub at Clapham Common with a roof terrace that over looks the common.

As you can see this is (Photo Below) the very impressive sea food platter that we enjoyed!

What Lily's Say
We're a local, neighbourhood restaurant, proud to be in the heart of Clapham Old Town. We know what we do well, and that's simple, hearty food with a commitment to the best produce and ingredients. Our menu centres around the grill, utilising the finest meat, fish and seafood, simply cooked and with yummy sides.

A well deserved 5 Stars!

The Journey of the Trafalgar Square Christmas Tree 2011
At 11:10 am on Friday 18 November, one of the most famous trees in the world began its journey to London.

This Years Tree!

The Ostmarka Forest in Norway Where the Tree Comes From

In the forest of Østmarka just outside of Oslo, a 46 year Norwegian Spruce tree was carefully selected as the 2011 Christmas tree to London.
The Mayor of Oslo - Fabian Stang, and the Lord Mayor of Westminster – CouncillorSusie Burbridge, made the initial ceremonial cut before forestry workers completed the felling of the tree.
In the spirit of Christmas, children from the local Lutvann Primary school, the Oslo International school and St Mary’s Primary school from London, sang Christmas carols before and after the tree-cutting ceremony.  The annual gift from the city of Oslo is a token of gratitude for the assistance given to Norway from 1940 to 1945.   When it reaches Trafalgar Square, the tree is carefully erected and decorated with ornaments and strings of lights (energy efficient light bulbs). A plaque at the foot of the tree reads:
       ‘This tree is given by the city of Oslo
       as a token of Norwegian gratitude to
       the people of London for their
       assistance during the years 1940-1945.
       A tree has been given annually since 1947’
The Trafalgar Square Christmas tree forms the focal point for the traditional singing of Christmas carols in the Square. The tree will leave Norway for the UK on Monday 21 November.
