Tudor Williams, department store.

I moved to New Malden a year ago and was delighted to find this gem of a store on the High Street. We, as residents, are very lucky to have this independent, family owned store still operating in our small town.

They have a fantastic beds and furniture department. I furnished almost my entire home from them after getting very poor service from the national chain 'sheds', and then bought their bed linen with the help of the vouchers I received from their loyalty scheme.

My son loves their Toy department, especially the Lego, and my wife uses their cosmetics and fragrance department weekly.

Great friendly service.

Also,  - Suttles, a stationery shop in the high street have a great range of office stationery which I use in my home office.

These stores shine out in a high street dominated by charity shops, Korean restaurants, fast food outlets, bookies and hairdressers.

Still agreat place to live. Good train and bus services to Kingston/Wimbledon and London.

Tudor Williams Department store. This store has been there for years as an independent department store. It has a coffee bar, make up department, gifts department, linens department, handbags and accessories department, haberdashery and two floors of furniture and curtains. 

I've been going to this store since I was a little girl and I'm sure all the residents of New Malden have had Tudor Williams in their hearts for years and years.

Tudor Williams also has a great focus on community and is also going to be providing gifts from Santa at this years New Malden Christmas Light Switch on.

Independant cafe - The Place on New Malden High Street is a good place for a nice slice of matcha cake and coffee of your choice.

The Royal Gurkha serves great Nepalese and Indian dishes. My favourite local for curry!

New Malden's famous for its Korean population which brings a unique feel to the high street with many Korean restaurants and shops. Shopping on the high street is fairly limited apart from the Tudor Williams department store and a Waitrose. Nearby Kingston and Wimbledon (both not much more than 5 mins by train) provide all the chain stores, restaurants and entertainment you could ask for. Richmond Park is convenient. There is a Nandos, Pizza Express and very good independent Italian, Indian, Korean and Chinese restaurants. Local pubs worth a shout are the Glasshouse opposite the station and Woody's a bit further from from the high street, which has a great beer garden in the summer and a real ale festival. Han Bar provides late(r) night opening and karaoke. It's in Zone 4 with a quick journey into Waterloo or Vauxhall (20 mins) yet living here can feel far removed from the rest of London if you want it to - most often "going into town" means Kingston.
