Where do Streatham and surrounding areas locals go?

Tooting Bec Lido

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

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!

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.

Tariq Halal Meats

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

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.

West Norwood Feast

A community market in south London. Community comes together to taste, eat, drink and admire or buy all handmade items and all things that are on offer.

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!

Hood

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

West Norwood Health and Leisure Centre

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

Milk

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

Blackbird Bakery

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

Honest Burgers

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

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!

Coffee Craft

An excellent recently opened coffee shop in South Norwood with a relaxed atmosphere, serving brilliant coffee, cakes and lunch.
