Tried this restaurant as a pre concert dinner. It is situated off the main thoroughfare of Blackheath. An upstairs restaurant that could have been a hall of some sort previously​. High ceiling with impressive Chandeliers which suited the decor which was modern and tastful. It...More

I really enjoy being in this place. Amazing service, reasonable prices and great coctails. Best calamari in London for sure! Lukas makes the best coctails and Luciano provides best service.

Good food, quick service, felt that the staff were trying to get rid of us, as we were told that the table needs to be booked in advance in future , but the place was half empty when we left. So very poor marketing guys!

A firm fixture on the Blackheath restaurant scene for many years, Locale has re-opened with a new look for the new season. Locale is, as the name suggests, about great, local neighbourhood dining, and the new decor, new menu and great bar should ensure Locale Blackheath continues to be one of South London's premier dining destinations. Mark Elphicke, director explained the internal makeover "Great food and drink, deserves a great home. The design keeps Locale Blackheath as fresh as its new menu." The new menu by Executive Chef Paolo Barone, (past experience Osteria Basilico and the renowned Locanda Locettelli,) is an exciting mix of: homemade pasta and ravioli that Locale is famous for, with new fresh choices including a great seafood section and grilled meats. The seafood is based on the catch of the day and also brings affordable lobster to SE3. Mark Elphicke explained the new menu additions "We have seen a growing taste for Lobster and sushi and wanted to make sure the Locale menu offers people exactly what they want as tastes change and also to offer them some new and exciting flavours." Specialist meats include steaks from Chianina beef, imported direct from Tuscany, cooked to perfection on a new Josper, the world's hottest indoor barbeque. The new menu provides diners with the perfect mix of a treat, family favourites and the chance to branch out and experience some new tastes and flavours. The re-opening also brings some exciting and much needed changes to the bar scene in Blackheath. The Locale bar has been given a new look with the addition of a truly stunning architecturally salvaged bespoke brass and copper bar. Discerning drinkers can enjoy a cocktail list worthy of the West End, a concise wine list designed to suit the restaurant menu and the best of London's craft beer. Locale looks forward with its new menu, bar and interior to continue to be the neighborhood restaurant and bar in Blackheath where great things happen.
