We were looking for a local venue to have our x-mas dinner. We sorced a few nearby restaurants and Locale proved to be the best value for money. Come the big day on the 14th Dec our party headed to Locale for our dinner. The service was great with the added bonus of a free glass of wine. The staff were very accommodating and efficent. This was partly due to the pre-ordering of our food. Even when someone was late it was no trouble for them be served when they arrived.

The whole group have given good feed back on the standard of food and service and how Locale put them in the Christmas spirit.

We are looking at having a group evening every 4 months and everyone has asked to return to Locale, as such a good time was had by all.

They also do some of the best cocktails in the area, especially the Spiced Mojito. And they have a good out door seating area which is great to have a drink after work and watch the world go by.

Well done and thanks to Mat, Mark and all the staff in Locale.

Me and my colleagues from the House of Lords went there for our Chritmas Lunch. It was the first time many of us had been to the Locale and we all would go back again. The food was magnicent and the Staff were very helpful. I would reccommend this restaurant to anyone I know.

We booked online on Tripadvisor as we were in Southbank for a brief romantic getaway. The man on the door welcomed us and confirmed our reservation - we requested we sit in a quiet corner and he obliged and handed us the menus talking us through the specials of the day. My partner ordered a pasta special dish and I ordered a pizza. I have to say it was one of the most authentic italian pizzas I have had - I cant remember the name but it had mushrooms, artichoke hearts and ham on it - highly recommended!

The manager on duty (Matt/Mark) visited our table to check everything was ok several times and he was kind enough to offer ideas for things to see in the area in the evening and gave us directions to get to Madame Tussauds.

Overall great hospitality and delicious food. ++

I am glad we could also be of assistance with things to do.

After going to Sea Life we were looking for some comfort food. A guy running the Waffle stand by Sea Life recommended it. It was delicious but a bit pricey. The food was good tho. For two people, an appetizer, two main courses, and drinks was approximately £50.

We held our son's sixth birthday party at Locale for 15 kids and 15 parents after a London Duck Tour and it was a fantastic experience. Mat (the manager) helped us plan some very special details for the lunch and took it upon himself to make a special Pirate themed menu for the kids. The food was great and generally the service met the expectations of some hard to please Americans!
