Where do Honor Oak Park locals go?

Le Querce

The finest Italian restaurant I have ever been to, with a varied and fresh menu that caters for everyone from meat eaters to vegans and all in between without seeming to try! I book for anniversaries, birthdays, visits from friends - any excuse to attend the best restaurant I know of. It may not look particularly salubrious, but it is child-friendly by day and romantically candle-lit by night. I cannot recommend it highly enough!

Jam Circus

A quirky pub that serves good food. It's also child friendly during the day.

Matoom

The best Thai restaurant with always fresh produce, taste buds will be working overtime as each mouthful gives you more to think about. A truly unique experience!!!

Good Thymes Supper Club

A monthly supper club inside someone's home in Ladywell, where local people come to meet and taste some good home-cooked food. Every month there's a different theme.

The Gantry

This delightful restaurant and bar is cosy inside during the winter, yet there's an amazing garden for the summer months.

Horniman Museum and Gardens

A quirky, free, family-friendly museum and gardens.

Telegraph Hill Park

The park with a view! Enjoy a picnic with a landscape of the most beautiful city line. #TelegraphHillPark

The Beer Shop

Lovely little craft beer micro pub with great music, staff and beer!

Brockley Market

Award-winning, bustling market selling seasonal produce and delicious street food.

Babette

Lovely food, wine and cocktails in a gorgeous French bistro housed in a converted pub in the heart of Nunhead.

Mayow Park

With a bowling green, play area and cricket pitches, Mayow Park is a great place to chill out at the weekend.

Brown & Green Cafe

This charming cafe sells delicious cakes and fried breakfasts. It's a great spot to visit on a lazy Sunday afternoon or after a jog around Mayow Park!

Olivelli

Great pizzas, pasta and fresh fish!

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.

East Dulwich Picturehouse and Café

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...

  1. About Honor Oak Park

    Honor Oak Park is an inner suburban area principally of the London Borough of Lewisham, with part in Southwark. The name originates from Oak of Honor Hill, or One Tree Hill. On 1 May 1602, Elizabeth I picnicked with Sir Richard Bulkeley of Beaumaris in the Lewisham area by an oak tree at the summit of a hill. The tree came to be known as the Oak of Honor. The tree surrounded by railings is an oak, planted c1905 and a successor to the historic one.
