Good to see two local restaurants getting a good write up as great places to take children, including Bona
[quote]A short stroll from Forest Hill station, BOnA serves up excellent sourdough pizzas from their wood-fired oven, making this a great stop on the way to or from the Horniman Museum (or even worth a little diversion if you’re not travelling through Forest Hill). Chewy crusts, plentiful toppings and a genuinely warm welcome ensue. Children love watching their pizzas being made whilst they wait.
Just over the hill from the Horniman Museum (10-15 minutes on foot) in Sydenham is the charming 161 Food + Drink. This small neighbourhood wine bar is popular with food-loving parents during the day, when they serve up plates of simple, well-sourced, homemade food from the tiny open kitchen.
The menu changes daily, but you can expect homemade baked beans on toast, beetroot falafel, epic toasties and, at the weekends, freshly baked sweet and savoury scrolls. The coffee is good too.[/quote]
