Chumleigh Gardens Cafe, SE5 0RJ
- Chumleigh Gardens, Burgess Park
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.
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".
