A sandwich deli right in the heart of Croydon. The menu is different every day and the prices are great for the amount you get.

One of, if not the best Indian restaurant in Croydon. It has a wide variety of dishes on the menu, including game curries. The food is delicious and portions are perfectly sized to keep you full - but not to the point of bursting.

Engrained in Croydon's history and open 6 days a week, you can pick up produce from pretty much any part of the world and it is also very cheap! My mum who still lives in Croydon is a fan of 3 bunches of bananas for only £1!

Serving the best food from the motherland, Ghana! The jollof rice served with domedo (seasoned and spiced pork) is to die for... It reminds me of mummy's cooking!

A charming and homely pub with a good vibe. There are different bar areas each with its own character. Good selection of keg and cask ales and a open kitchen serving good, reasonably priced food. The staff are very friendly and the service good. It has a quiz night on Mondays, compered by a charming and entertaining quiz master.

I love Lower Addiscombe because there are wonderful "old style" local shops which give it a great community feel, even though you are only six or seven minutes from East Croydon station by tram. The shops include an independent butchers, fishmongers and greengrocers. There is also a branch of an artisan bakers as well as a better known national bakers and two very good coffee shops (the tram stop and adagio). You are very close to Ashburton Park and along Bingham Road you will find the recreation ground.
