The snug at the back of this quirky bar has been the venue of many birthdays and 6 nations parties (watching Wales winning two grand slams there!)

Arguably the best kebab on Lordship Lane! It's hard to break the habit of going every day for lunch...

Yama Momo

Situated in the heart of East Dulwich on Lordship Lane, if you like Japanese food, you have to try Yama Momo. Great atmosphere, food and drinks!

Le Chardon

Proper French food, an interesting 1880s Grade II listed interior and a piece of local history, as it used to be a David Greig shop. Put your handbag on the marble shelves and try the lobster, bouillabaisse or coq au vin and wash it down with a fabulous wine choice. I always have a good meal here.


A lovely family-friendly café just off Bellenden Road that serves tasty homemade food.

This small cinema serves everything from cakes to meals, cocktails to coffee and screens small independent films alongside Hollywood blockbusters. There are even reclining seats and 'love seats' if that's what you'd prefer...

Please tell us about Denmark Hill

"Denmark Hill resident, Sir Henry Bessemer invented the first anti-sea sickness ship. This was done by hanging a large weight under the main hall where passengers gathered so it stayed upright as the ship rolled. Sadly, once at sea, the ship proved impossible to steer and crashed into a pier at Calais."

  1. About Denmark Hill

    Denmark Hill is an area and road in South London located between Camberwell and East Dulwich in the London Borough of Southwark. The road forms part of the A215; north of Camberwell Green it becomes Camberwell Road; south of Red Post Hill it becomes Herne Hill. Nearby streets whose names refer to different aspects of the same topographical feature include Dog Kennel Hill, Champion Hill and Red Post Hill. It marks the edge of the Thames valley plain in this area - from here to the river the land is flat. There are good views across central London from vantage points (e.g. top storey windows) on the top of the hill.
