Where do North Dulwich locals go?


Delicious Italian food in delightful Dulwich Village - the linguine comes highly recommended!

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...

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!

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.


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

Off the Cuff

A wine bar with cheese, live music and cheap drinks. They also sell furniture...

Herne Hill Market

A buzzing Sunday market, right near Herne Hill Station.

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 Lido Cafe

A modern British restaurant overlooking Brockwell Lido. Great for breakfast - plus lunch and dinner for that matter!

Brockwell Park

A great place for an early morning run, where you feel like you aren't even in London - yet you are only 10 minutes from central London on the Victoria line. There are tennis courts, a gym and a Lido too if running isn't your thing.

The Melange

A handmade chocolate shop and café that serves fantastic hot chocolate!

The Begging Bowl

Thai street food with a tapas approach - a relaxed and friendly buzz, especially on the weekend.


A lovely family-friendly café just off Bellenden Road that serves tasty homemade food.

Brixton Village Grill

A cheap and cheerful breakfast in trendy Brixton Village. This restaurant also serves lunch and dinner.

Child-friendly activities near North Dulwich

The German Kindergarten

St. Faith's Community Centre
At the German Kindergarten we believe that learning should be a natural part of life. We strive to create an environment where children enjoy themselves and learn in a playful way. We strongly believe in learning through play close to nature. We promote bilingualism from early childhood. Before the age of seven is when two languages are most easily learned. The German Kindergarten staff are native German speakers. We emphasise storytelling and reading as a way to immerse the children in a German speaking environment. The German Kindergarten is a very popular pre-school. The waiting list operates on a first come, first served basis. However siblings and children in care will have priority. Visit our website to find the Fee Table for more information on prices. Website

Boppin Tots

St Barnabas Parish Hall
Boppin Tots is a fun & exciting drop-in, pay-as-you-go music group for babies and toddlers. There is no need to pre-book to attend a session. You can expect 45 minutes of fun and entertainment in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere. There is no pressure at all for any child, or adult, to join in but with so many action and movement songs you'll find it hard to resist. Sessions are not age restricted and babies and toddlers are welcome together at any of the sessions. Babies needn't miss out on the action songs either as adults can give them a helping hand and the movements can easily be adapted to suit everyone. Sessions run every week during term time. A number of sessions also run during the school holidays - please check with your session leaders. Website
