Where do Mitcham locals go?

Morden Hall Park

With the River Wandle flowing through, there are meadows and wetlands with lots of wildlife and a beautiful rose garden. A fantastic place to walk, run or ride through. At the end of summer, a beer festival is also held here.


Great brunch, cakes and coffee!


The best fish and chips in South London, right on Tooting High Street.

Graveney and Meadow

A restaurant with cool, quirky décor and a great bar for a quiet drink.


A really nice café for lunch or a quick coffee with friends. They serve Mediterranean-style food and breakfasts until 5pm on the weekends.

The Little Taperia

A recent addition to Tooting High Street, this delightful tapas restaurant has a very reasonably priced menu.


Classic hot and cold desserts, milkshakes and gelato served in a low-lit, purple and black setting.

Deen City Farms

A small, local petting farm with a riding school and free admission.

Fisher & Co.

Really nice paninis, jacket potatoes and pastries. It serves a good cup of tea as well!

The Coffee Co. of Tooting

Brand new coffee shop that has opened and I love it! Delicious coffee, chilled out atmosphere and a great edition to Tooting. The falafel and avocado sandwich is awesome!


Just along Mitcham Lane, this cafe serves a delicious brunch menu. The coffee is really good and the dishes are all served with a MUD twist - the prettiest breakfast I've ever seen!

The William Morris

Sat on the River Wandle, a traditional, warm and welcoming pub. Serves a great Sunday roast. Perfect for a drink on a summer's afternoon.


Awesome Lebanese food at a good price. I would recommend a £6 lunch box deal, but make sure you order a little in advance.

Honest Burgers

Awesome place for a burger and definitely some of the best in London.

The Castle

Jump off the tube at Tooting Broadway and straight to the bar! The beer garden is amazing. Definitely one of the best pubs in Tooting and South London.
