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!

Canavan's Peckham Pool Club

Where every good night ends...Peckham's pool club open 24/7!


A fantastic South Indian restaurant at the Peckham end of Bellenden Road.

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.

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.

Thursday is the new Friday night! Peckham Springs under Peckham Rye Station is a food and drinks venue in an art gallery space.
