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.

    Food was excellent, service excellent, Band excellent. It was the 1st time I had ever had a Sunday Roast at Locale, and I will definitely be doing it again

    Our first visit to Locale....despite having lived in Blackheath for nearly 18 months. Used a groupon voucher...but would have been happy without the voucher. The place is stunning. Staff friendly, attentive without infringement. Ideal place for a wedding breakfast or private event/party. Food was tasty. I had the sirloin and my husband had the stonebass... mine was plentiful a bit too salty but the fish was one small fillet over a huge plate of barley... no need for so much barley, an extra fillet fillet would have done the trick. That wasn't a deal breaker tho..... The background music was awesome.....totally down my street.... not overbearing or having to shout to talk....
    Will definitely go back and sample some cocktails.... they looked amazing....
    This place is on our doorstep.... no need to go up town to be wined & dined in a super place....

    Relaxed Sunday lunch with family members. Gorgeous grilled sea bass as main course. Food served promptly but arrival of ordered drinks needed a reminder. Music was badly miked - only partially audible.

    I recently booked for a Sunday brunch. The food, the service and the decor was all equally amazing.
    Maybe a bit pricey for what it is but certainly worth the visit for the experience. Bottomless bubbles are good if you are all in a drinking mood.

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

    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.

    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.
