The Rookery

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.

Tariq Halal Meats

Tariq Halal Meats

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

The Hamlet

The Hamlet

The best decor I have ever seen in a bar. The Hamlet is almost like a Hidden Gem in Streatham. Beautiful food, cocktails and staff.

The Bull

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.

Cut the Mustard

Cut the Mustard

This delightful cafe between Tooting and Streatham is a real hidden gem. They have everything you would expect on a brunch menu and the portions are huge!

Norwood Grove House

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!

Brooks and Gao

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.

Perfect Blend

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!

Hood

Hood

A great recently opened restaurant on Streatham Hill. Go here for something completely different to the other places in the area.

La Casita

La Casita

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

Tooting Bec Lido

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

West Norwood Health and Leisure Centre

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

Milk

Milk

Amazing place for food and particularly busy at the weekends for breakfast - you can often find queues there, it's so popular!!

Chicken Shop

Chicken Shop

Much better than your average high street chicken shop! You must visit this place...

Le Tour de France

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.

Streatham Common is the perfect place to hang out when the sun is shining.
