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 not as good as it was compared with the several times that we've visited Locale. At this price point there are many local restaurants that are better. Cocktails were very good though. Lack of air conditioning is very poor.

    We have dinned several times at Locale and always enjoyed our evening however this time round we were a little disappointed by a member of staff.
    The sirloin steak we ordered was very disappointing, as my partner is pregnant we asked for this to be well done however it was brunt on the outside, very pink and bloody in the middle. after speaking with what looked like a manager in a white shirt his explanation was the following... Due to cooking on our charcoal grill our chef can't control the temperature (what a load of rubbish), rather than offering a new steak or a change of dish he got arsy then walked away. Can't fault our waitress who was very nice and helpful but this guy put negativity on our night.

    Very attentive, convivial staff. A nice selection of food and wine. A little pricey but nice

    Booked for 2 people on a Soul Sunday Lunch. Arrived at 1.30pm for lunch. Although the restaurant was not busy it took 4-5 minutes to catch the attention from someone to say we had arrived [No hostess or anyone to greet]. Shown to our table, ordered wine & given menu's to order. Starters & dessert where of good quality & presentation, main course lacked imagination & presentation. Music was excellent, service was not attentive & let the restaurant down. Food [Main] was disappointing
    It was such a shame the restaurant was not busier to create a buzz. I would like to say we would rush back but unfortunately not.

    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.
