Pub Food with Reviews, Maps and Links to their websites

The Spread Eagle Pub and Theatre Venue

39-41 Katharine St, Croydon CR0 1NX, UK – 020 8781 1134

Beautiful pub in Croydon. Great selection of beers on tap. Pub food nice and fresh with speedy service. I am kind of a regular there by now.

Ambience plus. Ye old world gentleman's pub, is spacious, clean and friendly. Traditional pub food is served on huge plates, and the staff are game for a chat. I felt instantly at home. I recommend the Spread Eagle as a retreat from the hustle and bustle, a good meal, a cool beer. Enjoy the Wi-Fi in a classy atmosphere.

The Milan Bar

14–32 High St, Croydon CR0 1YA, UK – 020 8603 0870

Full English Big Breakfast in Milan bar well the mushroom are too soggy should be drained off water I know the price reflects but presentations is important good try next time when I come again I want to see it giving your best to attract the customer improvement will be good.

Low prices and nice drinks. A friendly, little local that serves food and drinks. Nice, spacious layout of the tables and chairs.


47 High St, Croydon CR0 1QD, UK – 020 8688 2810

By reputation the oldest extant pub in Croydon. Quite basic no frills, a lot of artwork on the walls mostly of great rock bands. Has Hobgoblin on tap. Not sure what foods, never ordered any except crisps and nuts in the 4/5 times I've been here. It's certainly a Rock pub.

Really good pub in an area of Croydon where you can so easily go wrong. Dark and dingy, but in a good and deliberate way. Friendly crowd and staff and a good old rock clientele, who always prove to be much nicer than in some other places close to this one. Beer decent.


1 Matthews Yard, Croydon CR0 1FF, UK

Menus are quite flimsy as they're paper, meaning they're quite dirty. The food itself is good, a nice vibe with an adequate selection of drinks. Nice for a social outing with friends. Games such as table tennis and fussball are also available, good place!

Very delicious burgers, good serving size for price. Nice selection of beers on tap. The pub istelf has good entertainment: table tennis, foosball ,and a small console gaking lounge. Clean accessible toilets, too. Outdoor seating available. Staff friendly.

Pizza Hut Restaurants

59/61 N End, Croydon CR0 1TG, UK – 020 8680 1086

Over priced for bread and cheese like most pizza huts so nothing new there. Good family vibe with lots of space... seating upstairs. The stuff are nice and are never too out of site. Toilets need to be cleaned other then that it wasn't dirty. Salad bar was a joke but when the food did arrived it was hot and of an standard you would expect from pizza hut.

Staff are lovely and attentative. Pizza takes a little longer than usual but comes out on point. Thanks again for making me too full to go shopping afterwards!

Pizza Express

48 George St, Croydon CR0 1PD, UK – 020 8681 2550

As you expect, good food at a good price. clean and tidy

i like the food here, but there isn't much selection for muslims since only the chicken is halal. it is quite expensive when eating in groups and customer service really does vary. i've encountered very sweet waiters and very rude ones too. i personally prefer the pizza express in Croydon than i do anywhere else.

Chinese Restaurants serving the Thornton Heath area

Hap Lee Chinese

1585-1587 London Rd, Streatham, London SW16 4AA, UK – 020 8764 2336

The best Chinese food !!!..... Been commingled here for over 20 years !!!..... I use Hap Lee as a benchmark for all Chinese restaurants I go to. Their garlic steamed prawns are out of this world, ask for their chopped green chillies also !!!!!..... Simply heavenly combo !!!

One of the best quality Chinese food restaurants you will ever find in London.

New Moon Restaurant and Takeaway

5-7, Portland Rd, London SE25 4UF, UK

Had sit in meal a few weeks ago and like it very much and now I have just had a takeaway from there and just as good (well done) guys

I ordered 4 things. Crispy seaweed, char sui pork buns, smoked shredded chicken and satay sauce. DO NOT GET THE CHAR SUI PORK BUNS they were genuinely the worst I have ever had. They were rock hard like when you reheat something in the microwave for too long which as far as I am aware is impossible to do if they had actually been steamed. Completely inedible. However the rest was fine and tasted good, the satay sauce was extremely oily, it had pool of oil on the top of the lid before you even opened It, however it tasted very nice. All in all middling but fine affair that I would get again except the char sui buns which I wouldn't touch with a barge pole unless maybe I wanted a cracked tooth for some odd reason.

Woks Cooking Halal Chinese Restaurant

1453 London Rd, London SW16 4AQ, UK – 020 8679 8998

Very good halal authentic Chinese food. None of this fusion rubbish. Prices are reasonable as well and you get good size portions. Home delivery service is very poor. Made an order at 9.45pm and was told the did would arrive by 10.30pm. By 11pm there was still no sign of the food and as they close at 11pm no one answered the phone to give me an update. I assumed the food wasn't coming so made alternative arrangements. At 11.30pm there's a knock at the door. Delivery driver says it's not his fault as he was the only driver working that night and my delivery was the last of 4. Took the delivery, food was cold. Not impressed.

Not bad plates need a bit touching up and tables need modernisation but overall generally good on the portions

Indian Restaurants and takeaways in or near Thornton Heath


265 High St, Croydon CR0 1QH, UK – 020 8686 2626

Brilliant food, great service and very well mannered staff. Highly recommended!!!!

Absolutely brilliant experience. Really easy place to find, walked down from our hotel across town. Near enough to the Southend where there are plenty of bars. A great modern feel with old and new Indian foods. Perfectly sized proportions and the most important thing is taste to die for. Service was 5*, from start to finish. We did reserve, went quite full, but would suggest a tel. call before to get a reservation. Looking forward to going back on our next visit.

Banana Leaf South Indian Restaurant

7 Lower Addiscombe Rd, Croydon CR0 6PQ, UK – 020 8688 0297

Good food, excellent value. The service was efficient too. Have never had a bad meal here.

Food excellent but poor service.

Resham Restaurant

1538-1540 London Rd, Streatham, London SW16 4EU, UK – 020 8764 4007

We did takeout. The food was great. My only issue was that when we called to place our order, they were not able to receive our call since we were from USA and our phone numbers were from us. They got our call, but they could or would not answer it. I think they thought it was a prank call. Had to walk to this place and place our order in person. It was worth it since the food was excellent.

One of the best Indian restaurants I've visited especially for the price, they offer great food with good service I've been here a numerous amount of times and I can't complain the staff are very friendly and happy to help. Even when they're busy they still try to accommodate visitors. I highly recommend their Paneer it's tastes really good and one of items they have on the right menu. They're dessert menu could be improved however as it is a bit lackluster. But a nice experience.

Italian Pasta and Pizza Restaurants

Salve Italian Restaurant

1 Lansdowne Rd, Croydon CR9 2BN, UK – 07741 091924

Great Italian food. The portions are quite filling (at least for the items that my friends and I had). The mozzarella pizza bread is absolutely tantalizing. I highly recommend it. But with the fairly large portion size, sharing this starter with a friend is probably be a good idea. You may even want to split your main dish if you aren't a big eater. The service was pretty good, mind you The restaurant was empty except for my friends and I. The staff were very polite and helpful. The food prices were quite reasonable for.the amount of food that is served. To sum it all up, if you are in or near Croydon and are looking for some good Italian food, try Salve Italian Restaurant. It will be worth your while.

I've been a regular here since they opened. This restaurant cares about its customers, serves delicious food, and is reasonably priced for what it is. They also cater to special dietary requirements where they can. Their vegan pizzas are delicious.

Pizza Napolitana

74 Lower Addiscombe Rd, Croydon CR0 6AB, UK – 020 8654 3030

Best pizza around, garlic base is incredible. Thin crust and perfect every time.

Really good pizza, also not very greasy which is always a bonus.

Pizza Express

Unit 2, Valley Leisure Park, Hesterman Way, Croydon CR0 4YA, UK – 020 8686 2888

Pleasant enough. . cool but no fierce ''air conditioning'" thankfully. Pizzas good but child's pasta was too bland even for a 2 year old ( a watery pinkish sauce !) and she shared our pizzas. Attentive waiter.

Light and airy, quick service, tasty food. Great. Ideal for cinema dining

Vegetarian or Vegan Restaurants


850 London Rd, Thornton Heath CR7 7PA, UK – 020 8683 3344

Excellent service from initial phone call, to placing order and delivery of catering for 50 guests at a garden party. The food was lovely too. Would happily use Swad again.

Very good Indian snack options. They also take orders for events (collection required). Be nice and the staff will be nice to you too :)

Kalpa Restaurant in Croydon

5-7 St James's Rd, Croydon CR0 2SB, UK – 020 8684 6661

I love this place. It’s got everything great food and great price. The staff are always very polite, service is quick and efficient. The food is lovely, spicy and flovoursome. Highly recommend.

The food here is good and service too, staff polite and helpful. Nice cosy place. Website menu defers from restaurant menu. There's car parking in nearby street. Would still recommend.

Dosa n Chutny Croydon

466 London Rd, Croydon CR0 2SS, UK – 020 8683 3297

The food is good and the price is very reasonable. They need to work on their service efficiency and manner though. We waited a long time for our bill. The waiter was a little surly at times. He was the only one serving on the floor and handling their front of house. They need more staff. We calculated our bill wrong but they didn't seem fussed about taking our money for the wrong amount. That was disappointing! They reluctantly removed a dish from our bill that wasn't ours. Our friend got some food spilt on his shirt and we didn't get any kind of goodwill discount or anything, that was also disappointing. Though we did get an apology. The guy taking our bill at the front of house was actually quite rude, unlike his colleague who had been serving and seemed to warm up towards the end of the evening.

Delicious dosa and curry plus a couple of puris, some lassi and some gulab jamans to finish. Service was excellent. May bring my family some time soon.

Wine Bars and Cocktail Bars

Slug & Lettuce Croydon

10 Park Ln, Croydon CR0 1JA, UK – 020 8686 1033

Nice bar/pub. Food is great but not cheap. But then worth every penny. Great staff that are professional. Decor is modern. You can pop in for a beer or slide in for a cocktail. Dinner time it for some fodder, cozy up with your bow for some crazy food in the evening. Nice hidden place. Find it if you can.

One of the nicer bars in Croydon with a great selection of cocktails that come with a great buy one get one free deal. The food is of high quality and I would really recommend the sharing boards which for about 15 pounds give a sizeable amount of food for about four people to taste with some interesting items. Only down side seems to be the hygiene with sticky wet menus and my friend having lipstick around the rim of a cocktail she ordered. Overall a good place for food and drink however.

The Sparrowhawk

2 Westow Hill, London SE19 1RX, UK – 020 8761 4831

Lovely pub which caters for all. Great friends meeting point. Decor is bright and welcoming. On this occasion we just had drinks but I've eaten there before and they provide quality food and good portion size which reflects well on the pocket! Only thing I was concerned about was that tables were too close together which made it nearly impossible to get to some seats hence 4 stars.

Good food. I had a steak with marrocan salad. Great.
