Where do South London locals go?

The Bull

This gastropub next to Streatham Common is fantastic! The décor is really cool, there's an impressive outdoor seating area with fires and the food is outstanding.

Cream's

Classic hot and cold desserts, milkshakes and gelato served in a low-lit, purple and black setting.

The Rookery

A walled garden that would not look out of place in a BBC costume drama. Stunning throughout the year and still relatively undiscovered by the residents of South London. The gardens are beautifully maintained by a justifiably proud set of volunteers.

Norwood Grove House

Known locally as the "White House", Norwood Grove House and its well-tended formal gardens were opened in 1926 by the future King Edward VIII. It is the centrepiece of Norwood Grove itself; a large expanse of grass from which you can overlook Streatham and its surrounding areas. It is thoroughly underutilised and all the better for it!

Blackbird Bakery

Open early in the morning, pop into this cafe for a delicious coffee and pastry.

The Godfather

Run by some chaps from Napoli, this authentic restaurant also uses ingredients brought over from Napoli to give you a genuine Italian experience.

Performance 360

Crossfit and personal training gym based in the heart of the Crystal Triangle. Always a hard workout.

South Norwood Lake and Grounds

Feeding the ducks on South Norwood Lake is a great way to escape city life.

Boxpark Croydon

Next door to East Croydon Station sits over 30 shipping containers with a variety of food and drink. Some of the biggest names such as Meat Liquor and The Breakfast Club have outlets.

Stuffins Unlimited

A sandwich deli right in the heart of Croydon. The menu is different every day and the prices are great for the amount you get.

Lahore Karahi

An awesome Pakistani restaurant serving delicious curries! Really busy, a lively atmosphere and really good for large groups of people.

Papa Charlie

Mediterranean food in the heart of Greenwich along bustling Greenwich Church Street. A wide and varied menu of dishes and cuisines and a great place for all the family.

Petersham Nurseries

This acclaimed garden centre offers the most amazing and tranquil experience to eat, shop and explore.

The Boaters Inn

Amazing pub, great service and quality of food... good for Sunday family meals.

Flour to the People

Gorgeous local sourdough bakery that makes amazing coffees and fry ups - even homemade baked beans and perfect poached eggs!
