The service from the cocktail bar was not quite as good as I would have liked. However the waiting service was very good, very attentive.

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.

    went for my birthday meal as was good although the marinated chicken was a little salty..mash potato was excellent....focaccia bread was wonderful. Pear Tart was tasty though a little to much would have been better without it!
    Ginger Cosmo was out of this world!!

    Excellent Crab linguine. Sunday lunch time, restaurent almost empty so little atmosphere, too dark! Had to leave my seat to ask for desert menu probably because so few customers staff forgot about us, but when staff did attend our table they were very polite and welcoming.

    The lunch was lovely. The lamb was delicious . The only slight fault was the mash was not hot & not enough vegetarian options. Overall it was great & we will be back

    I thought the food was excellent. I especially loved the Burrata which is unusual to find in London. The service is very good and the food is as good as you would get in Italy. We chose the pinot grigio, which was excellently described, because it was just what we wanted. I would describe the restaurant as modern with hints of old Italy. Worth a visit and surprisingly not too busy.

    Lovely place, excellent service. Over - priced wine. Starter delicious but astonished to see only one vegetarian main course - so behind the times! And the choice was a risotto reputedly containing goat's cheese which I couldn't taste. Bland and stodgy.
