Bistro | Crystal Palace, South East London

A fantastic local restaurant with great food. A really lively atmosphere and nice staff. Had a great bottle of wine from the 'Exclusive' list as it was a special occasion and it was well worth the price. Will definitely visit again, even if it's just for the chocolate brownie desert! More

Obia, Sardinian for Olive. In 1902 Mundiccu, a young man working seven days a week in local flour mills dreamt of saving enough money to marry his young sweeheart and buy a piece of land to farm and change their families fortunes.

In the winter of 2016 thousand of miles from the little village of Gonnosfanadiga, Mundiccu's grandson and two friends discussed the need for a quality family Italian restaurant in Purley... ...a little piece of Italy opened it's doors.More

The Gentlemen BaristasThe Gentlemen Baristas
British | London Bridge, South East London

Despite its relative youth, our coffee house has developed in to a place where people from all over London, from all walks of life, come to meet. Everyone from students to successful entrepreneurs, actors, doctors, and nurses frequent our house. Since 1698, when the London coffee house cemented itself as the quintessential melting pot of political, philosophical and creative debate, independent businesses have competed to serve the best cup of ‘syrup of soot and essence of old shoes’. Today, no more will ‘essence of old shoes’ satisfy our discerning palettes, but the vibrant social scene has remained as popular as ever. We opened our doors with the aim to recapture the spirit of coffee houses of old; offering the best coffee, the best food and the best service we can. More
