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.

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!

"Peckham and particularly Bellenden Road has an array of cafes and amazing restaurants. "

August 2015


"I love Peckham Rye because transport links are great. It takes 20 minutes by bus to get into the centre of London and 15 by train. The shops are great for food shopping and the area is bursting with culture."

February 2015


"There's some really nice cafe's around. Peckham Rye is beautiful in the summer. Great transport links and London's most affordable cinema too =)"

January 2015


"Nunhead has got to be the best place to live if you want to be close to the city, close to lots of green spaces, and close to lovely pubs and shops. Nunhead has a real mix of people with newcomers keeping the area vibrant. Sunday lunch at the Ivy House Pub with a jazz big band is a must!"
