Where do East Dulwich locals go?

Hisar

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

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.

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!

Olivelli

Great pizzas, pasta and fresh fish!

The Bishop

A superb way to spend your evening, this newly refurbished pub in the heart of East Dulwich is the perfect place for celebrating with a cheeky champagne or two.

"From cool bars to cosy pubs, fantastic restaurants to some great independent shops, East Dulwich has it all - but still manages to maintain a ‘villagey feel’. The area boasts lots of open spaces with Dulwich Park, Dulwich Woods and Peckham Rye close – all of which mean you’re unlikely to want to stray too far from home on the weekend."

Ole Kids

The Herne Tavern
We developed the Olé Kids curriculum through years of observing children and what they like doing at different stages cognitively, emotionally and physically. We picked out the best elements of children's classes and coupled it with our knowledge, research, tons of love and respect for children and our endless passion for creating a Spanish speaking community. In simpler words, we are designing the classes that we want our own children to have access to! Learning Spanish has never been as easy and fun as with us! Website
