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.

"Dulwich Picture Gallery was the first public art gallery in Britain. It was created from a collection of art compiled at the request of the King of Poland, but when he abdicated following Poland's conquest by Russia and Prussia, it left the curators with a massive collection. On their death they left it all to Dulwich College and decreed in their will that it must be displayed to the public."

I often pop into Pavilion Cafe in Dulwich Park - it's the perfect spot to take in the beautiful surroundings and they serve delicious food too.
