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.

    This was the second time I have visited. I brought my friend here for a belated birthday treat. It was as excellent as it was the first time I came. The service is excellent, the food and drinks are amazing and it has very much become my favorite place in Black heath to eat out.

    Bonfire night at Blackheath so the whole Village was packed but we booked a table early in the week, I’m sure it was the last one. On the night the restaurant was busy but the service was still very friendly and personal. There was an issue with one of the meals we ordered: an adult meal arrived when it was supposed to be a kids one. However, they turned it around very quickly and brought over some chips in the meantime so our child was happy. It was their own initiative and really great. After that they made a fuss of her so she was happy too.
    There was a mad rush with everyone leaving at the same time and paying at the same time, to get to the fireworks. Again, the staff handled it all very well.

    The menu was very limited with just 4 main options, other than steak. I choose the pappardelle pasta, which, when it arrived was spaghetti. When I asked why I was told that they had run out of pappardelle, which, considering such a limited menu and it being a Saturday night, was annoying. In fairness, the waiter changed it for something else, and discounted the bill, but it was frustrating as we also sent back the other dish for being cold. It’s a shame that the food falls so short in such a beautiful restaurant. There’s a great atmosphere, and the staff are friendly, but the food is very average and limited in choice.

    It was a great experience, food was excellent and service quick but not hectic. Everyone was friendly and at mosphere was really lovely. Steaks were nice, we all loved the starters and desserts, so well put together! A full five stars for this place!! ??????

    This is a lovely room with a separate bar, where staff make delicious cocktails. There is a lively buzz in the restaurant. We were there to celebrate a birthday and got the lovely round banquette table. Starters were ok, but expensive scallops. Most of us had them, but we didn't enjoy the way they were served.The squid rings were the winner. Love a short menu, but it is pretty annoying when one of the four main courses was not available (to be fair, there were 3 pasta dishes and 3/4 steaks to choose from as well. One steak was unavailable too!!) I don't eat meat, so that narrowed it right down! So, no cod. The mains were generally well received, although the mixed leaf salad was unacceptable (whole romaine lettuce leaves covered in salt and thrown in a bowl). For pudding, we all ordered sorbet or ice cream, which was good and one person ordered cheesecake, which was not good at all. The staff are lovely: friendly and professional, the room is very nice, particularly for romantic dinners or special occasions. It is pretty expensive, however. Our bill was £450ish for 7 people, which included a round of cocktails, a bottle of prosecco, a white and two reds and a few coffees.

    Booking Very Good
    Cocktails before dinner in happy hour. Barman excellent. Looked after coats etc with no hassle.
    Good service, although I don't like 12.5% service charge (10% is my usual if its good.) being added to my bill automatically.
    The food was very good if a little small portions. We visited on Steak Night. Again very tasty but very small cut.
    Wine was about the usual price for London.
    I will go again.
