Always good on Monday steak night. But music too loud, preventing conversation. It will deter me from going in future if it is loud again next time.

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.

    Lovely venue, nice staff but menu continuously going down hill.

    We came to Locale for the first time courtesy of vouchers gifts for our party of four.We were able to park right outside the restaurant. It was a very relaxed atmosphere and the table service was faultless. For starters I had squid in batter which was superb and for the main course I had bass which was also excellent; not overcooked and very moist. The rest of the party enjoyed their selections also. I had a glass of draught ale which I must say was an excellent flavour..full of hops. I don't know where it was brewed; I should have asked. We had some 'extras' which of course was not included within the voucher and the prices were as would be expected. One negative I will mention is that when we received the bill there was a 12.5% service charge applied to the full cost including the vouchers. I didn't see the bill so I can't verify this but it's what I was told,so if I'm wrong in saying this then I apologise and would like to be corrected. Personally I would sooner not be presented with a service charge but leave a discretionary tip. All in all we all had a lovely evening at the restaurant.

    Wonderful evening! This is the second time I've dined here and was not disappointed. I booked a table for four as my partner and two of our friends have birthdays in the same week. The wait staff were fantastic, they accommodated our every need and the food? Deliciously mouthwatering decadence! Book a table, you will not be disappointed.

    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.

    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
