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.

Child-friendly activities near Dulwich

Try Time Kids' Rugby

Belair Park
We have created rugby based games and activities that increase kids enjoyment of sport as well as develop them physically. We know what keeps kids entertained and enthused and we believe passionately that our rugby play sessions for all kids from 2 years old to 7 years old, will give them the attributes they will need to go on and play the next level of rugby... or indeed any sport. There are 3 age groups that we run at every venue, Rascals (2-3.5), Scoundrels (3.5-5) and Scrummers (5-7). Kat and Nathan have been coaching children's rugby together for many years. They run the Dulwich site together with a "two heads are better than one" attitude. The Dulwich coaching team attempt to challenge the kids' imaginations and creativity to be weird and wonderful, working with the philosophy that when the kids are having fun, the rugby skills and athleticism inevitably follow.

We strongly believe in learning through play close to nature. We promote bilingualism from early childhood. Before the age of seven is when two languages are most easily learned. The German Kindergarten staff are native German speakers. We emphasise storytelling and reading as a way to immerse the children in a German speaking environment. The German Kindergarten is a very popular pre-school. The waiting list operates on a first come, first served basis. However siblings and children in care will have priority.
