Where do Streatham and surrounding areas locals go?

Tariq Halal Meats

An amazing butchers in Streatham that is part of a small franchise of equally great stores.

Le Tour de France

The best fresh coffee, croissants and bread. Lovely family-owned independent. Get there early for their bread and croissants - they sell out fast.

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.

Brooks and Gao

One of only a few decent coffee shops on Streatham High Road. It's slightly pricier than its competitors, but for the quality of the food and coffee, it's justified.

La Casita

A fantastic choice of Spanish food and drink all at great value!

Perfect Blend

Lovely place for a coffee in the morning before getting in to the office and amazing cooked breakfasts with thick milkshakes. It turns into a bar at night with an extensive cocktail menu and it's open until 2am!

Hideaway

The best live music venue in South London.

Tooting Bec Lido

A great place for a swim! Because it's an open air pool, it's ideal in the summer.

West Norwood Health and Leisure Centre

So many activities for adults and children. I personally love the exercise classes, Zumba and Boxfit.

Blackbird Bakery

A cafe selling delicious coffee, cakes, bread and healthy juices ready to go.

Knowles of Norwood

This lovely quirky bar is quiet mid-week for a lovely intimate meal or catch up. And lively on the weekend with a lovely band. Good atmosphere. Rustic style.

The Castle

Jump off the tube at Tooting Broadway and straight to the bar! The beer garden is amazing. Definitely one of the best pubs in Tooting and South London.

Balham Bowls Club

The heartbeat of Balham's nightlife, this vibrant pub is open until 1am Friday and Saturday and also serves food from the bar and dining area.

Honest Burgers

Awesome place for a burger and definitely some of the best in London.

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.
