Where do BR5 locals go?

The Bickley

This pub set within a beautiful period building next to Chislehurst Caves has a warm atmosphere, a wide range of ales and delicious pub grub.

Shampan 2

A tasty Indian restaurant serving classic curries and speciality dishes too.


I certainly recommend Balkon on Chatterton Road. It serves fantastic traditional Turkish meze and delicious grilled meats.


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!

Bromley Civic Centre

Built in 1775, The Old Palace is a beautiful venue with immaculate grounds that is perfect for weddings.

Bare Necessities

An accessories shop on Regents Walk inside the Intu centre. It has every type of hair accessory you could need and lovely jewellery too!

Cinnamon Culture

The best Indian food in the most beautiful surroundings and with great friendly service too.

Bar du Vin

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

Ginger and Bean

A cute coffee shop in Sundridge Park with homemade cakes and toasted sandwiches. The coffee is to die for!

Railway Tavern

Home to the best bangers 'n' mash and one of the hardest pub quizzes, this pub offers a wide range of Indian pale ales. It's a stones throw from Bromley North Station, so it's perfect for commuters who fancy a pint after work.

Charter Market

Fresh fruit and veg, as well as some other great bargains!


A great mix of Italian and Mediterranean cuisines, cheap prices and fantastic service!

Churchill Theatre

Lots of great shows throughout the year, including plays and world-famous music artists.


Great Mexican burritos in what was once a post office.


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