A good slice of cake. The cornerstone of elevensies, four o’clock munchies and…well, any time of day really. Usually served with a tea or coffee, having some cake has become almost a ritual in Britain and South London isn’t short on offers. We all deserve to indulge in something sweet from time to time, far away from those people who recite ‘a moment on the lips…’. We won’t finish it. This is a cake-lover safe space. This is a list of our favourite places to sit with a wonderful slice of cake and a hot drink, watching the world go by.

Beer gardens. A garden where you can consume your beer. A common mistake is that one cannot drink other beverages in a beer garden, don’t worry, one certainly can. Nor do beer gardens actually have to be particularly green, they can be completely paved. Beer gardens were once really only used in the summer, but they are now the main refuge of smokers throughout the entire year. Summer is, apparently, upon us, and we’re sure that you, like us, have been scouring the internet, or the actual real tangible world, for local establishments with the right beer garden. We love saving you time at South London Club, so we’ve compiled for you a list of 5 beer gardens to try in Southwark Borough.
