Where do West Norwood locals go?

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.

Knowles of Norwood

This lovely quirky bar is quiet mid-week for a lovely intimate meal or catch up. And lively on the weekend with a lovely band. Good atmosphere. Rustic style.

West Norwood Health and Leisure Centre

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

La Gastronomia

A taste of the Mediterranean, this Italian deli also has a patio garden, where you can sit and enjoy their delicious dishes.

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!

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.

Brown & Green Cafe

Grab a quick snack and a cup of coffee from this independent kiosk whilst on your daily commute.

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.

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!

Hood

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

Four Hundred Rabbits

Head to this pizza restaurant for a delicious gelato on a warm summer's day in the Crystal Palace Triangle!

Palace Spice

This Indian restaurant's food is delicious. I am constantly ordering too much, but never upset by the bill. They always offer me free drinks too!

Domali

Vegetarian and pescetarian restaurant with the best fat chips EVER.

"Awesome views and fastest travelling needs."

Local resident

"It's easy. People from all backgrounds rub along just fine. Feels a bit of a hidden gem but likely to change with a new swimming pool/gym and leisure centre and cinema too. Some great local treasures like Rosebery's auction house and South London Theatre and again, will become more of a destination as SLT are planning to do major restoration works to the theatre. Think Balham 15 years ago when it was at the tipping poi... more
