Streatham Vale

A locals' guide to Streatham Vale

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

Where do Streatham Vale locals go?

Cream's

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

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.

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!

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!

Tooting Bec Lido

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

La Casita

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

Tariq Halal Meats

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

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

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!

MUD

Great brunch, cakes and coffee!

MUD

Just along Mitcham Lane, this cafe serves a delicious brunch menu. The coffee is really good and the dishes are all served with a MUD twist - the prettiest breakfast I've ever seen!

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.

West Norwood Health and Leisure Centre

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

Hood

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

Why do you find Streatham Vale a great place to live?

Local resident

"It is quiet area, good for new families with mostly 3 bed houses. Outstanding and good schools in the area. A quick walk to both Streatham Common and Norbury station for commuting 20 minutes to Victoria or 30 to London Bridge. Fantastic parks like Norwood Grove, Streatham Common and the Rookery are a short walk away. Norbury has a post office and by Streatham Common is the very family friendly Railway pub and Tea Rooms!"
