Where do CR7 locals go?

Doyley's A1 Barbers

I have been getting my hair cut here for over 15 years. It's a very nice family-run business and a fantastic place to discuss football and sports with the guys. It also tends to be a social hub too, which is great!

Cream's

Classic hot and cold desserts, milkshakes and gelato served in a low-lit, purple and black setting.

Selhurst Park

A great day out for all the family watching Crystal Palace FC play at their home ground.

Pita Pit

A wide variety of delicious wraps at great prices!

The Whitgift Centre

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

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.

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!

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!

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.

Yeha Noha

Organic food, homemade stuff, including cakes and pastries, meditation evenings, live music at the weekends, an outside terrace and a really funky interior... Love it!!

Norwood Grove House

Known locally as the "White House", Norwood Grove House and its well-tended formal gardens were opened in 1926 by the future King Edward VIII. It is the centrepiece of Norwood Grove itself; a large expanse of grass from which you can overlook Streatham and its surrounding areas. It is thoroughly underutilised and all the better for it!

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.

Coffee Craft

An excellent recently opened coffee shop in South Norwood with a relaxed atmosphere, serving brilliant coffee, cakes and lunch.

The Bull

This gastropub next to Streatham Common is fantastic! The décor is really cool, there's an impressive outdoor seating area with fires and the food is outstanding.

Mantanah Thai Cuisine

An authentic Thai restaurant that has an amazing menu, offering good quality meat and vegetarian dishes.
