Where do Honor Oak Park locals go?

Jam Circus

A quirky pub that serves good food. It's also child friendly during the day.

Le Querce

The finest Italian restaurant I have ever been to, with a varied and fresh menu that caters for everyone from meat eaters to vegans and all in between without seeming to try! I book for anniversaries, birthdays, visits from friends - any excuse to attend the best restaurant I know of. It may not look particularly salubrious, but it is child-friendly by day and romantically candle-lit by night. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

The Gantry

This delightful restaurant and bar is cosy inside during the winter, yet there's an amazing garden for the summer months.

Horniman Museum and Gardens

A quirky, free, family-friendly museum and gardens.

Brockley Market

Award-winning, bustling market selling seasonal produce and delicious street food.

Mayow Park

With a bowling green, play area and cricket pitches, Mayow Park is a great place to chill out at the weekend.

Brown & Green Cafe

This charming cafe sells delicious cakes and fried breakfasts. It's a great spot to visit on a lazy Sunday afternoon or after a jog around Mayow Park!

Le Chardon

Proper French food, an interesting 1880s Grade II listed interior and a piece of local history, as it used to be a David Greig shop. Put your handbag on the marble shelves and try the lobster, bouillabaisse or coq au vin and wash it down with a fabulous wine choice. I always have a good meal here.

East Dulwich Picturehouse and Café

This small cinema serves everything from cakes to meals, cocktails to coffee and screens small independent films alongside Hollywood blockbusters. There are even reclining seats and 'love seats' if that's what you'd prefer...


Arguably the best kebab on Lordship Lane! It's hard to break the habit of going every day for lunch...

Yama Momo

Situated in the heart of East Dulwich on Lordship Lane, if you like Japanese food, you have to try Yama Momo. Great atmosphere, food and drinks!

Canavan's Peckham Pool Club

Where every good night ends...Peckham's pool club open 24/7!

The Bishop

A superb way to spend your evening, this newly refurbished pub in the heart of East Dulwich is the perfect place for celebrating with a cheeky champagne or two.

The Shop Revolution Marketplace

The Shop Revolution Marketplace host lots of unique events like poetry and craft nights, with all the items they sell produced by independent designers and jewellery makers. This picture was taken at a Miss Victoria's Floral Emporium flower arranging workshop.

K & K Butchers and Grocers

On the corner of Choumert Road and Rye Lane there is K&K Butchers, which sells fresh produce, meats, fish, fruits and vegetables.
