Where do SE23 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!

Horniman Museum and Gardens

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

Mayow Park

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

Jam Circus

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

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!

Cherry & Ice

A café serving delicious ice creams and milkshakes with the friendliest staff - they're so lovely and helpful and always make me feel welcome.

The Shop Revolution Marketplace

The Shop Revolution Marketplace host lots of unique events like poetry and craft nights, with all the items they sell produced by independent designers and jewellery makers. This picture was taken at a Miss Victoria's Floral Emporium flower arranging workshop.

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...

The Gantry

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

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.

Yama Momo

Situated in the heart of East Dulwich on Lordship Lane, if you like Japanese food, you have to try Yama Momo. Great atmosphere, food and drinks!

Hisar

Arguably the best kebab on Lordship Lane! It's hard to break the habit of going every day for lunch...

The Bishop

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.

Rocca

Delicious Italian food in delightful Dulwich Village - the linguine comes highly recommended!

Canavan's Peckham Pool Club

Where every good night ends...Peckham's pool club open 24/7!
