Wonderful meal - we had steaks, lobster, and pasta among the group and all were very good. Helpful staff and great atmosphere! We have a family group and were well taken care of - Locale always seems to handle both families and couples in a way that does not impact the other groups.

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.

    Our second visit here, for our anniversary. Had a lovely mushroom risotto to start with, my wife had the scallops, which were well cooked. I had the black cod for main, and my wife had steak. The waitress was happy to replace the first lot of chips my wife had which were a bit anemic looking, second portion much better. We had a lovely chateauneuf du paper to go with it. Dessert got a bit confused, mostly because they'd run out of most flavours! But we did get some nice gelato in the end. We topped it all off with a beer and lovely daiquiri at the bar. Overall a solidly decent meal, perhaps a little expensive for what it was but we enjoyed ourselves and will be back at some point in the future

    Firstly every other couple had a four table, we didn't. Service incredibly slow & uncaring. Starter missing gerkins with bread that was meant to be sourdough (was not) & so stale almost broke a filling. My wife's seabass was cremated & the black cod was tasty but overpriced. The cocktails were great

    We had a lovely evening with friends at Locale Blackheath to celebrate a birthday. The table was ready and waiting when we arrived and drinks were quickly delivered to the table. Service after that was very friendly but slow. That said we all enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. This is a lovely restaurant.

    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!
