The London borough of Lewisham is in South London, close to Peckham, Greenwich and Blackheath. In recent times the area has received a lot of bad press for the serious unrest due to  the rioting in August. Scenes hit our television screens and newspapers with what has been called the ‘worst violence in memory’. Hundreds of looters took to the streets in an outbreak over the fatal shooting of a Mark Duggan by Metropolitan Police firearms officers. Following a peaceful protest by those upset and angry about his death, things catapulted in to an unprecedented scale. Rampant looting and arson attacks hit the city, where property damage, stole items, violent acts all incurred. Five people also died due to these violent attacks and another 16 or so were injured. Lewisham suffered the first account of unrest, with groups of youths targeting business and property in the high street. Bars and pubs were smashed into and alcohol and cash were taken. Disruption continued in Lewisham until looters broke out in Hackney, Peckham and Clapham over a series of days.


Since then, Lewisham has done well to put itself back together and carry on despite being hit with huge bills. It’s important to say this, as without people visiting the area and helping, financially, Lewisham would find it hard to continue. There are some lovely places to eat and drink in the area, so next time you want to head our for a meal then consider somewhere in Lewisham. To help you, here are some places that you might like to check out yourself. Depending what you are after, cheap and cheerful grub, a spot of lunch or a sit down dinner, you will find a variety of places to go. Cafe Oscars near Ladywell Road is a lovely little cafe serving a selection of croissants, pastries with freshly ground Arabica beans coffee. Fresh bread is delivered every morning, which is used to make handmade sandwiches.
