Where do Telford Park locals go?

Streatham Wine House

Excellent wine by the bottle or special wines can be tasted by the glass.

Bar 61

The owners who are friendly and love a chat and a joke. The bar sells great tapas and you can enjoy an old fashioned leisurely lunch in a bar that has the atmosphere of a bygone age - love it.

Hood

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

Tariq Halal Meats

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

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!

La Casita

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

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.

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.

Tooting Bec Lido

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

Lavish Habit

Monmouth Coffee and shopping while you chat! It is a furniture store and boutique, as well as a cafe serving breakfast, lunch and sweet treats with friendly, cosy surroundings.

Milk

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

Negril

The best Caribbean food and the rum punch really packs a punch! The platter is amazing and the saltfish fritters with the gravy are unbelievable...

Blackbird Bakery

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

Hildreth Street Market

On a miserable English day, the best place to go to put a 'spring' in your step is Hildreth Street Market, where stall owners sell beautiful seasonal flowers.

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.
