Blackheath’s Locale is part of London’s party of three Locales, bringing excellence in Italian and international cooking to corners of the city away from the tourist hubble and bubble. On Lawn Terrace, Locale is leading the way for locally-focused, serious eateries south of the river. With a menu expansive enough to please the whole family, Locale’s Blackheath outlet (alongside its its sister incarnations across the capital) is proving itself to be indispensable for family-friendly, serious dining.
Choosing to lead with a menu which blends the best of Italian cooking with elements as diverse as sushi, curry and fish and chips should not undermine Locale’s position as a restaurant of distinction in south London’s Blackheath. With pasta made fresh at Locale’s Lawn Terrace premises every day and a seasonally changing menu of locally-sourced ingredients, it would do Locale a disservice to dismiss it as simply another family restaurant, just because you and yours will all find something on the menu to suit your fancy.
The home of great international food (with particular care taken over the Italian-inspired dishes) in Blackheath is undoubtedly Locale, and with branches on the Southbank as well as well-to-do Fulham, there’s great food everywhere for diners on the hunt south of the river. London’s Lawn Terrace is lucky to have a restaurant of Locale’s calibre on hand to feed hordes of hungry locals, worker bees and lost tourists, and looks set to grow in stature in the capital.
Fab night! Great food and service with a smile. Orders tapas and steak. All perfectly cooked. Never disappointed and will be back again fir mire!
venue good and easy to find - not crowded and a quiet ambience - service good they were helpful and polite - food good will go back
A gorgeous venue, easy to find with parking nearby. The staff couldn't have been more friendly or attentive, the food was delicious too and good sized portions.
I had a really lovely meal for two with a friend. The food was tasty and served hot and the desert menu offers a very good choice of yummy deserts.
Service was not great - had to ask for things multiple times. Out of the 4 diners that went, 2 were happy (extremely happy) with their meals, whilst the remaining 2 were not impressed at all. Such a shame as up until now I had never had a bad dining experience here. The singer created a lovely ambience and we will return. However, yesterday's experience was not up to the usual standard of the restaurant, which was a same as I had invited guests.
Great cocktails. lovely ambience and a good set menu on a Thursday night. Service is courteous and attentive. Lucien was particularly helpful. Locale enjoys an excellent location in Blackheath village.
Food was good same as the service! Can't wait to go back! Great theme nights and the we had the sushi. Could be a regular Wednesday night!
