South East London

A locals' guide to South East London

"Rotherhithe has a rich industrial history, so expect to find architectural gems amongst modern residential developments in this area."

Where do South East London locals go?

Jam Circus

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

Luciano's

Such great service from this independent restaurant. The pizzas and the seafood are highly recommended!

Cinnamon Culture

The best Indian food in the most beautiful surroundings and with great friendly service too.

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.

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!

Tamasha

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!

Frank's Cafe

Frank's Café in Peckham is a really cool bar with amazing views of London on the top of a multi-storey car park.

Gail's

Fantastic olive bread and a great place to pick up a sneaky afternoon snack!

Church House Gardens

Beautiful gardens that form a magical setting for outdoor performances on the open-air stage and in the amphitheatre.

The Lido Cafe

A modern British restaurant overlooking Brockwell Lido. Great for breakfast - plus lunch and dinner for that matter!

Bromley Civic Centre

Built in 1775, The Old Palace is a beautiful venue with immaculate grounds that is perfect for weddings.

Four Hundred Rabbits

Head to this pizza restaurant for a delicious gelato on a warm summer's day in the Crystal Palace Triangle!

Mascots Sports Bar

Massive portions and a number of food challenges - not for the faint hearted! You can sit in your own private booth with a TV and chow down on fiery chicken wings.

The Gipsy Moth

An after work pint after a tough day in The Wharf? The Gypsy Moth pub is a favourite mooring. With riverside vistas and historical importance, Greenwich is best enjoyed with a pint of Meantime.

Buffalo

I love buffalo because it has great service and serves up a tasty burger for an even better price. The evening and lunchtime menus have a wide variety of options to choose from.
