Under new management, it is good value for money and we have confidence in taking friends there. They serve excellent light lunches and suppers.

The Gantry

This delightful restaurant and bar is cosy inside during the winter, yet there's an amazing garden for the summer months.

Le Querce

The finest Italian restaurant I have ever been to, with a varied and fresh menu that caters for everyone from meat eaters to vegans and all in between without seeming to try! I book for anniversaries, birthdays, visits from friends - any excuse to attend the best restaurant I know of. It may not look particularly salubrious, but it is child-friendly by day and romantically candle-lit by night. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

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

On the corner of Choumert Road and Rye Lane there is K&K Butchers, which sells fresh produce, meats, fish, fruits and vegetables.
