Pourquoi les habitants le recommandent
One of the oldest continually used cinemas in the UK, this single screen community cinema, run by locals and a charitable trust, opened in 1912 in this lovely leafy area. The recently restored auditorium ceiling is barrel-vaulted with art deco panels. It shows mostly art-house films, but occasionally puts on live ballet and opera, and toddler screenings. It was built at a time when moviegoing was just becoming an acceptable, normal thing to do. Before then, films were mostly screened in fairgrounds and makeshift shops and seen as a bit seedy. The history of this cinema and how it has supported independent film for over 100 years is just brilliant.

“A really great local Indian restaurant, serving up all the classics but with a slightly more modern, elegant twist. Insanely popular you'll need to book ahead to get a table, but they deliver to the flat for free (we have copies of the menu). ”

“It is a 20 minute walk from the flat. Admire the Georgian buildings and the cute shops and, to refuel, pop into Le Pain Quotidien which has a garden at the rear where you can sit outside.”
