Catford Constitutional Club

Catford Constitutional Club

Very quirky, wonderful atmosphere, food and drink. Puts a completely different slant on Shabby Chic

Jam Circus

Jam Circus

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

Good Thymes Supper Club

Good Thymes Supper Club

A monthly supper club inside someone's home in Ladywell, where local people come to meet and taste some good home-cooked food. Every month there's a different theme.

Babur

Babur

Incredible Indian cuisine (and cocktails!) Hailed by Hardens, and impressive enough to rival anything in central London.

Le Querce

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!

Babette

Babette

Lovely food, wine and cocktails in a gorgeous French bistro housed in a converted pub in the heart of Nunhead.

Horniman Museum and Gardens

Horniman Museum and Gardens

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

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

Le Délice

Excellent cakes and coffee

The Point

The Point

One of the most secluded spots with amazing views over London. Not a tourist in sight and the perfect place for a picnic too.

Kelsey House

Kelsey House

One of my favourite spots in Beckenham! A bar and restaurant with rustic, trendy interiors.

Brockley Market

Brockley Market

Award-winning, bustling market selling seasonal produce and delicious street food.

Hisar

Hisar

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

Khyber

Khyber

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.

Bridge House Theatre

Bridge House Theatre

West End-quality performances at outer London prices.

"During the Peasants' Revolt of 1381, the Kentish rebels met with royal government representatives on Blackheath and continued into London, killing government officials, attacking gaols and setting fire to buildings in the City. Eventually the rebels were forced out of London, but continued to cause trouble in other parts of the South West."

Hop on a train from New Cross Gate Station direct to Shoreditch and stations close to the City and Canary Wharf.
