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.

Le Chardon

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 'Concrete House' on Lordship Lane is the last remaining example of its architectural type in the country. Once in a state of dereliction, it is Grade II listed and has been converted into flats."

The independent shops and cafes and charming period properties make East Dulwich the perfect place to set up home.

Victorian houses line the streets of Dulwich and enhance the welcoming, characterful feel of the area...

In the heart of Dulwich, Dulwich Park is beautiful on a sunny evening, either walking the dog or taking a leisurely stroll...

What locals say about SE22

  1. I love East Dulwich because of its homely feel!

  2. East Dulwich - city life, village lifestyle!

  3. From cool bars to cosy pubs, fantastic restaurants to some great independent shops, East Dulwich has it all - but still manages to maintain a ‘villagey feel’. The area boasts lots of open spaces with Dulwich Park, Dulwich Woods and Peckham Rye close – all of which mean you’re unlikely to want to stray too far from home on the weekend.

  4. Great local amenities such as the boutiques and great pubs on Lordship Lane, whilst also being within walking distance of nearby Peckham, which has cool independent cafes, restaurants and bars. Close to Peckham Rye Park and Common, which is great in the summer to hang out on, or get involved with the numerous sporting activities it houses during the summer. The area has fantastic transport links with the Overground stations nearby, plus extensive bus routes that allow access to all parts of London.

  5. A really terrific place to bring up a family. Good primary schools, lots of parks and green spaces, a lovely friendly community and a great high street.
