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 here was really good, service is friendly and attentive. There was a vegan selection for my wife, although you have to ask as no specific mention is on the menu. Great atmosphere too, made to feel welcome.

    Excellent local restaurant, the team are always incredibly welcoming, and very caring of my nut allergy, which is so reassuring. The food is fabulous! I particularly love all the seafood options. Great cocktail menu too. Locale is brilliant for a quick drink at the end of the day, a romantic meal, a bite to eat with friends - and special parties, all of which I've done there with great success, I go back to Locale again and again as they just get it right all the time.

    Really bad service. Waited to be seated for at least 4 minutes until one of my friends at the table caught me waited from the other end of the restaurant and came and got me. Waited 15 mins for drinks order to be taken and then another 10 minutes to receive the drinks.
    Food was very average. Drinks were nice.
    Would not go back. Over priced for what it is.

    A brilliant evening to celebrate my birthday. We started with some great cocktails sat at the bar which were brilleant value and then sat down in the beautiful restaurant for our meal. The service was great, food delicious and the giant birthday sparkler in my dessert was the icing on the cake. Great set menu offering delicious food for a good price.

    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.
