Chumleigh Gardens Cafe, SE5 0RJ

Now closed; was a cafe situated in converted listed almshouses in Burgess Park in Camberwell. As of September 2010 there is still a cafe in the park, but in a different location from this one and run by a different company.

The information below is retained for people who want to know what it used to be like.

Cafe situated in converted listed almshouses in Burgess Park in Camberwell. There is also outside seating in the gardens. The best way to access this is from Albany Road.

Although Burgess Park may seem a bit plain, Chumleigh Gardens is actually rather nice. There are formal gardens such as an Islamic garden nearby, and the cafe is also convenient if you are having a meeting in the neighbouring children's centre.

secretlondon visited in August 2009, and had a pleasant lunch on a picnic bench with colleagues waiting for a meeting. I had one of the daily specials which was a Cajun chicken wrap (£3.50) and a banana (50p). My wrap also contained cheese and seemed to have been put in a panini press, which was unusual.

Accessibility: They say they are fully wheelchair and pushchair accessible, and an anonymous commenter tells us that step-free access is "from the side entrance".
