The food was agreeable, the service very good, overall ambience pleasant - except for the loud "music", if you can call it that - totally unnecessary.

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.

    Nice restaurant, my food was lovely, I ate crabmeat spaghetti, but my husband's stake was nothing special, he said.
    The service was slow.

    A lovely evening meal in a very nice place.

  • (((** 30 October 2017 by Robin from London

    Wasn't an outstanding experience, thought it was pretty average. All too rushed, had not long received drinks and nibbles when the starters arrived, 3 minutes after starters cleared mains arrived, food was average, service was okay. I really wanted this to be a great experience, sadly it wasn't. Am sure there were lots of happy people sadly we weren't part of them.

    Good food but very poor service

  • (((** 24 October 2017 by Alan Cameron from London

    A decent venue and pretty good food with some rather annoying niggles.
    Service was rather average, waited an eternity to pay the bill. The music was often too loud to allow a round table conversation.

    Food was excellent. Three of us had the black cod and all found it delicious. The clafoutis for dessert was tasty and original.

    I thoroughly enjoyed my afternoon at Locale, Blackheath. We were warmly welcomed by Amanda who always remembers your name and makes you feel special before you even sit down. Amanda makes the smooth running of the restaurant seem effortless. Jenny was looking after us during our meal and was very attentive to our needs, serving us an excellent Sunday Roast and very good and reasonably priced house wine. The afternoon was made even more special by the music supplied by Paris Ruel who has a fantastic voice. The afternoon became more like an "event" than a mere Sunday lunch.
