Where do Kidbrooke locals go?


Fantastic olive bread and a great place to pick up a sneaky afternoon snack!


The food and wide range of beers brewed in house make this place so popular! They do scrumptious, fresh stonebaked pizzas and the views of Blackheath are great. A nice place for a drink and food.

Buenos Aires Café

The best Argentinian steak restaurant ever, where the walls are covered in iconic photos taken by its owner. Definitely ask for an upstairs table overlooking Blackheath.


Such great service from this independent restaurant. The pizzas and the seafood are highly recommended!


An independent coffeeshop with a gorgeous sun trap of a garden that serves an amazing full brunch menu.

Susan Clark Interiors

A lovely independent interiors shop, selling fab pieces of furniture, fabrics, small gifts and unique cards.

Oxleas Wood Cafe and Severndroog Castle

Severndroog Castle tea rooms do super food and jolly posh teas in the considerately renovated folly albeit with sometimes random opening hours, check the website! Oxleas Wood Cafe is always open and always makes for a pleasant break with plenty of space for the kids to play and dogs to be run.

Greenwich Park

Going for a run is never dull with this on your doorstep...

Royal Observatory Greenwich

The observatory is a great place for all ages to visit. There are usually a number of exhibitions for all ages giving a history of time and space and the architecture is wonderful. During the evening you can see the green laser across the sky that shows the meridian line.

"In the grounds of Charlton House is what is thought to be the oldest Mulberry tree in Britain. It was planted by James I in 1608 in amongst a whole mulberry garden that was to be used in the production of silk. However, what he didn't realise is that they were the wrong type of mulberry used for breeding silkworms."
