Nice airy cafe with outside terrace overlooking the lido. But I don't think you can justify the cost of a price of coffee weighing in at a hefty and bizarre £3.03 for a small cappuccino. It's Herne Hill not Mayfair.

The Lido pool is lovely but can get a bit busy on hot summer weekends. The café is excellent with a good menu. Well worth a visit

The pool itself is wonderful; huge, clean enough, almost mythic in appearance. I couldn't have been happier with my swim. But poor facilities- queue 4 deep for each loo, showers not working in women's changing room, tiny space, not enough lockers and those there are...More

We waited over an hour for food and nothing arrived (we ordered salad!). Terrible staff. This place is a shambles. Do not bother if you can help it.

Went to start my open water and wetsuit season with a friend and loved the pool. Lovely clear water, beautiful location and changing / locker facilities. Then a quick drive to Herne Hill for well deserved brunch after 20 lengths and 1,000m. Wetsuits and costumes...More
