ThinkLocal Directory and helpful links

Welcome to our local Beckenham, Bromley & other local areas in and outside the borough directory. You'll find displayed to the right of the page and on every page of this website under the heading "ThinkLocal" lots of local businesses, trades, services, shops, bars, restaurants, etc.

If you'd like to list (and we'd love you to) please search out a category to the right here -> and if not a member of the website sign-up to it and then go back to the page(s) you want to list on and join them and then list your details and services as directed there.

It's free to list, but if you want some advertising on the site or be the headline listing on the your category page then contact Jon Clarke, site owner, for terms and low cost payment details.

The beauty of this directory is because it's group based it's therefore social and engaging and those listed within it can engage each other and the public too can join a group and discuss, ask questions etc and so it becomes a two way street creating a better stronger more connected neighbourhood.

Over the next few months we will be cleaning through the posts below and putting them into the new category groups. If they are yours and you want to update them, then just join the group and post there.

If you have any problems or don't find a category that suits you then email Jon Clarke (me) through the website and a new category and any problems then solved.


For those who Twitter you'll also find a worthy feed to follow at

If you wish to get even more stand out then we offer affordable low priced advertising opportunities on the website/Twitter/email/Facebook pages too CLICK HERE - LOCAL ADVERTISING RATES

Hope you don't mind a little introduction. Just joined in:)

Located in the heart of Bromley, we reside in the old Victorian pub (previously The Crown) since March 2011. We decided to keep our decor to minimum to better showcase the beautiful food we lovingly prepare.

Don't expect regular curry house! We plate and sculpt your meal to please  all the senses! Menu changes seasonally as we source our products locally (apart from the spices). Expect wild boar, ostrich, buffalo, rabbit, sea bass, lobster and more alongside more popular meats.

We are proud to be voted National Curry Week's Customer Restaurant of the Year 2012. 

We also feature in the Michelin Guide 2013 as the only Indian restaurant in Bromley.

Visit or twit us @CinnamonCulture :)
