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.

    Visited Locale for dinner with two friends on their mid week set menu. Very good value for two/three courses. Calamari was fine, nothing special but nice. Lamb was good, a little on the salty side but well cooked and tasty. The deep fried zucchini was delicious too. Good choice of wine and cocktails.

    Had a lovely evening at Locale. Food was great and the service by our waitress was excellent. Very polite, helpful and friendly. Only thing I would say is that the drinks were a bit expensive.

    Over all reasonable as I am not big eater but I would think for some one who is big, may need bigger portions of his chips!I would have loved to have a bigger portion of the salad !
    The deserts was divine, I loved it!

    I really enjoyed the meal. Monday’s they do a half price on selected steaks. It was quite enjoyable, and the staff service was very friendly would recommend.

    Delicious steak and very good service. Our waiter Nick was very friendly and attentive.

    Decor is lovely, it is a tasteful chic restaurant and fine dining space and I could easily imagine it being full of atmosphere and buzz. We went on a Sunday which was quite quiet, although it was snowing so perhaps that was why.

    The waiting staff were lovely and our server answered our questions about the lovely building and interior with knowledge and pride (who would have imagined the building used to be an old bakery/factory sort of thing)

    The menu was easy to follow with a good range and our sever was honest in saying the butcher had let them down and she would only recommend the fillet steak as the serloin abd rump were not the best cuts.

    My only criticism is we had to wait slightly longer than I consider normal for our mains after the starters, but it was not an issue.
