A locals' guide to Tooting and surrounding areas

"Figge's Marsh is a lovely green space with pretty wildflowers amongst South West London's residential streets."

Bradley Slade

"Colliers Wood is well connected with the City and central London yet boasts green spaces for families and walking the dog."

Bradley Slade

"Still affordable yet benefiting from recent gentrification, Colliers Wood is the next hot spot.."

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!

Tooting Broadway Market

One of the busiest markets in the South West, Tooting Market injects life and diversity to the already vibrant Tooting Broadway area. We're always talking about the property market, this is the real market we should be raving about!

Great coffee and food in the heart of Tooting Market.

Honest Burgers

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

Kennedy's

The best fish and chips in South London, right on Tooting High Street.

Tartine

A really nice café for lunch or a quick coffee with friends. They serve Mediterranean-style food and breakfasts until 5pm on the weekends.

The Coffee Co. of Tooting

Brand new coffee shop that has opened and I love it! Delicious coffee, chilled out atmosphere and a great edition to Tooting. The falafel and avocado sandwich is awesome!

Meza

Awesome Lebanese food at a good price. I would recommend a £6 lunch box deal, but make sure you order a little in advance.

Fisher & Co.

Really nice paninis, jacket potatoes and pastries. It serves a good cup of tea as well!

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.

An awesome Pakistani restaurant serving delicious curries! Really busy, a lively atmosphere and really good for large groups of people.

Graveney and Meadow

A restaurant with cool, quirky décor and a great bar for a quiet drink.

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

The Little Taperia

A recent addition to Tooting High Street, this delightful tapas restaurant has a very reasonably priced menu.
