DINING OUT AND RECREATION
Some of our favourite local eateries span across both Forest Hill and Honor Oak (both towns come under the same postcode) and include Mama Dough and Bona (sour dough pizza restaurants), Canvas and Cream (great local café serving a selection of cakes, food and drink. They also host some art exhibitions) and the award-winning Babur Indian restaurant. There's also the popular Le Querce which is run by a Sardinian family serving traditional dishes.
Alongside the Horiman, other local attractions include One Tree Hill at the top of Honor Oak Rise and offers some of the most breath-taking views across London and the city skyline. In our opinion this is a hidden gem.
You will also find nature reserves in proximity of the property on Devonshire Road and Garthorne Road.
There is a selection of walking trails locally via the highly acclaimed Sydenham Hill woods and Albion Millennium Green to name just a couple.
You might be surprised to note there is a golf course in the local area.
