Catford Constitutional Club

Catford Constitutional Club

Very quirky, wonderful atmosphere, food and drink. Puts a completely different slant on Shabby Chic

Le Querce

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!

Incredible Indian cuisine (and cocktails!) Hailed by Hardens, and impressive enough to rival anything in central London.
