Tamasha

An Indian restaurant and bar, which even has a hotel too! Fantastic curries that are not your average Friday night food. Bit pricey but well worth it!

Brodies

As well as cakes and lunch items, Brodies main selling point is their milkshakes that they make out of any chocolate of your choice...

Market Parade

A fantastic local fish and chip shop selling an authentic British culinary experience.

Mascots Sports Bar

Massive portions and a number of food challenges - not for the faint hearted! You can sit in your own private booth with a TV and chow down on fiery chicken wings.

Great pastas and wood-fired pizzas, you can always find voucher codes for this Italian chain.

Chimichanga

Great Mexican burritos in what was once a post office.

Bar du Vin

Karaoke, members' club and late nights at the weekend, Bar du Vin is Bromley's only wine bar.

Havet

A superb Turkish restaurant in the centre of Bromley. The meze platters are the best!
