At the heart of Blackheath Village, Locale is a contemporary restaurant and bar specialising in steaks, seafood and cocktails. A grand wooden staircase leads onto the spacious Locale dining room, with its magnificent open kitchen and contemporary cocktail bar.

From executive chef Paolo Barone, formerly of Osteria Basilico and Locanda Locettelli. the Locale menu mixes homemade pasta with a selection seafood, sushi and grilled meats. The house speciality is Fiorentina steak from specially imported Chianina beef cooked on the Josper grill, whilst elsewhere on the menu, lobster with hand-cut fries, slow-roasted pork belly with slow-braised cabbage, and beer-battered fish and chips are firm favourites.

With an architecturally salvaged cocktail bar at its hub, the lively dining room at Locale in London also offers an extensive drinks list. Sample creative cocktails, local craft beers and wines from the cellar.

In a peaceful suburb, Locale Blackheath evokes an air of sophistication, with regular happy hours on offer. Blackheath Rail Station sits just 2 minutes’ walk away.

    Good food spoilt by poor service!

    On arrival we were not welcomed (eventually the bar man got us a table), the table had no cutlery, no draft beer, you were constantly trying to the waiters/waitresses attention and it took a long time between courses.

    Will not be going back there anytime soon!

    I used a Groupon voucher so we had a set menue. The choices were probably things I would have chosen anyway and the prosecco that came with it was lovely! The food was absolutely top notch and the staff were so friendly! My friend and I had an absolutely wonderful evening.

    I had not been to Locale before - I noticed it when it opened but as it's on a side street I had not walked directly past it and so hadn't seen inside or the menu etc. I'd say it probably needs a bit more of a push on the PR side as it was such a treat to finally get to know the place.

    Both our meals were fantastic, I had the burrata and squash salad, then another starter of crab ravioli and both were excellent. We had Vesper Martinis which are my favourite and they were very well done. The building and decor is lovely, I think I'd be as happy coming for cocktails as I would a meal.

    My only reason for not giving 5 stars is that I was brought the wrong starter but it was sorted out immediately.

    Overall, we had a great meal, the staff were all lovely and we will definitely be back.

    Excellent service. Friendly and helpful staff. Lovely ambiance and reasonable noise level. Good menu choice.

    It was good but could have been better. They ran out of steak knives on Steak Monday!? Not bad overall but one star missing due to a few minor things
