Where do CR0 locals go?

Reflex

If you want a fun, inexpensive night out, Reflex is great. You can usually count on cheap drinks, the people are friendly and there is always a way to get home no matter where you live!

Pita Pit

A wide variety of delicious wraps at great prices!

Khyber

One of, if not the best Indian restaurant in Croydon. It has a wide variety of dishes on the menu, including game curries. The food is delicious and portions are perfectly sized to keep you full - but not to the point of bursting.

Boxpark Croydon

Next door to East Croydon Station sits over 30 shipping containers with a variety of food and drink. Some of the biggest names such as Meat Liquor and The Breakfast Club have outlets.

The Whitgift Centre

There's a great choice of stores in The Whitgift Centre!

Buffalo

I love buffalo because it has great service and serves up a tasty burger for an even better price. The evening and lunchtime menus have a wide variety of options to choose from.

Stuffins Unlimited

A sandwich deli right in the heart of Croydon. The menu is different every day and the prices are great for the amount you get.

Shirley Hills Viewpoint

This viewpoint in the Addington Hills provides breathtaking views of all of London. Make sure you visit on a clear day!

Shirley Windmill

Guided tours and a visitor centre explaining the milling process, it's a great day out for the family.

Surrey Street Market

Engrained in Croydon's history and open 6 days a week, you can pick up produce from pretty much any part of the world and it is also very cheap! My mum who still lives in Croydon is a fan of 3 bunches of bananas for only £1!

Shampan 2

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

Balkon

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

Little Bay

A cosy little restaurant in South Croydon with fantastic service and great food! Make sure you ring up in advance and request a booth when you book to experience the uniqueness of this restaurant.

Kelsey Park

Although not the biggest park around, Kelsey Park is a peaceful, leafy spot with a large pond and a cafe. A great place to bring the kids, where they can run around the playground.

The Gold Coast

Serving the best food from the motherland, Ghana! The jollof rice served with domedo (seasoned and spiced pork) is to die for... It reminds me of mummy's cooking!
