Where do Mitcham locals go?

Morden Hall Park

With the River Wandle flowing through, there are meadows and wetlands with lots of wildlife and a beautiful rose garden. A fantastic place to walk, run or ride through. At the end of summer, a beer festival is also held here.

Deen City Farms

A small, local petting farm with a riding school and free admission.

Aya Lebanese Cuisine

The staff are always welcoming, the food beats all other competition of its type. Not only is the food delicious but healthy because of being charcoal grilled. There is always a friendly, welcoming, lively environment every time I go and take the family.

Tartine

A really nice café for lunch or a quick coffee with friends. They serve Mediterranean-style food and breakfasts until 5pm on the weekends.

Sat on the River Wandle, a traditional, warm and welcoming pub. Serves a great Sunday roast. Perfect for a drink on a summer's afternoon.
