I booked this restaurant for my girlfriend's birthday dinner. Although not our main complaint, but the atmosphere was awful and our waitress looked like she'd rather be anywhere than at work. Over a drink, we decided on our order. I asked what pasta the ragu...More

Locale is round the corner from us so we eat there quite regularly and it's generally pretty good. Last night was really poor though, so much so that it's prompted me to write my first tripadvisor review. We went as a family for Father's Day...More

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.
