Oxleas Wood Cafe and Severndroog Castle

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.

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

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.

A cute coffee shop in Sundridge Park with homemade cakes and toasted sandwiches. The coffee is to die for!

An Indian restaurant and bar, which even has a hotel too! Fantastic curries that are not your average Friday night food. Bit pricey but well worth it!

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

Railway Tavern

Railway Tavern

Home to the best bangers 'n' mash and one of the hardest pub quizzes, this pub offers a wide range of Indian pale ales. It's a stones throw from Bromley North Station, so it's perfect for commuters who fancy a pint after work.

"Golf was first introduced in England in 1608 at Royal Blackheath Golf Club."

I love this stunning converted coach house set within breathtaking Sundridge Park Golf Course.

Woolwich is affordable, it has great transport links, fantastic people and the new General Gordon Place is extraordinary.

Michael Schult

A place so integral and central to modern science, you can learn so much at Royal Greenwich Observatory.

What locals say about SE9

  1. I've lived in Camberwell for just over 10 years and love living here. In zone 2, we are so close to the centre of London but manage to achieve a really lovely community village-type feel. Our neighbours have lived here for generations and really look out for us; the bars are really great and there are some fantastic gastropubs - one of which we were lucky enough to get married in! Our wedding was at Southwark Registry Office at the end of Havil Street and we came back to the flat and had WONDERFUL photos in the green across from our flat and champagne with the neighbours, followed by a fabulous dinner and party at The Bear – on the other side of Camberwell Green towards Oval. Burgess Park has hosted many a birthday party in the summer in the BBQ areas. And friends coming from North London are always amazed and impressed with how lovely the area is and how close to the centre of London we are.

  2. Tree lined streets, close to woods and open space, pretty houses, 20 minutes to London Bridge, perfect young family area ... what more do you need...

  3. I grew up in Greenwich and have lived in the borough all my life. Eltham is a nice area, with plenty of green spaces to enjoy. There's lots of history and Oxleas Woods is a delight.
