“Park great, cafe -meh!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

We love coming here my daughter really enjoys the go-karts, which are a treat as expensive but great fun!

Found the cafe to be grubby though-ok, ok it is in a park so yes, I would expect the floors to be muddy at times but sticky, dirty tables, mud on window ledges, dirty trays-no thank you. Place needs a deep clean. Staff pleasant behind the counter, huge queues a pain. Food was ok, lots of usual suspects greasy chips etc. Caters well to the yummy mummies with snotty nose kids who seem to think screaming running around cafe and disturbing all and sundry whilst people are relaxing is the height of good trendy parenting, lol. (I have a young child, she has been taught table manners from a young age-shock horror!)..toilets in park are vile with blocked sinks not great as unisex, felt like men's toilets tbh.

“Beautiful and lots to do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

Dulwich park is huge with great facilities; from tennis courts, rowing boats for hire and a duck pond, to exercise equipment and bikes for hire. I thought it was lovely to see a well maintained vegetable patch in the park. There is also a cafe and a building for events I believe.

The park is busy with families, runners and dog walkers. It is a beautiful place to go for a walk, have a picnic or sit and read a book. There is some shelter from the rain (as well as the cafe) but it would be best to go on a sunny day!

Easy to connect to the P4 bus route (between Brixton and Lewisham Station), although this service is not very reliable with busses coming approximately every 20minutes.

“beautiful park, disappointing food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Dulwich Park itself is really beautiful with great facilities for children but food at the cafe was disappointing as burgers were undercooked and chips were soaked in the oil.
