Re: Sydenham Cars SHOCKING

We've always found Sydenham cars great. Only bad experience wasn't their fault, there was a big accident and we were being picked up from Heathrow. The driver called us every 10mins to keep us updated and tried his hardest to get to us. He eventually did and got us home.

Re: Lidl beer

Hogs back are a good brewer. Good standard English ales in my opinion. Lidl also do a couple of excellent Belgian ales. A wit (refreshing wheat beer usually made with coriander and lemon rind) and a blonde ale (a bit like Leffe but nicer). Well worth checking out.

Re: Looking for a shop unit in Sydenham

Might be worth contacting the Sydenham Society, or Pat Trembath via here - check the Greyhound post for her details.

Re: The Alexandra to become a hostel?

Yes, it is Late Knights. They are hoping to open in a couple of months as far as I'm aware. Lots of work needed on the boozer though. I'm sure it will be fab once opened.

Tubby old bean Great stuff. Sorry we missed your birthday we were away. I'll happily bring some reggae and soul records along one time if you like. I'm away 14th May but could well get involved on 16th July. My mate Dan in Penge may also be interested. He's a great DJ that crosses genres. Big reggae...

Re: Bob Wines

Bob's stocks wines, spirits and beers you wouldn't find in your supermarket. Bob used to manage Oddbin's in West Dulwich so knows his stuff. All the beers I have had from there have been excellent. Bob said they were, so he's not just selling product for the hell of it. Everything is tried and teste...

Re: Bob Wines

Popped in last night, really nice guy (the owner) and love the idea of refill wine on tap. It's a great way to cut down on waste and get excellent wines for less. They even had some fizz! And I was given a try of the red, which was delicious. I picked myself up the following: Canopy (Herne Hill) - T...

To be fair most by Beavertown are good.

The king of London Breweries is still Kernel in my opinion. Check them out. Or for something from the north try Buxton or Marble.

Re: #RebuildTheGreyhound - pub to be rebuilt by April 2015?

It would be terrible if it was a Costa! Back to my comment earlier about High Streets becoming so generic. You go to Oz for example and that just doesn't exist. Consumers avoid big chains, high streets/cities don't allow chains. And if you run a chain each has to look different and be individual. I ...

Re: #RebuildTheGreyhound - pub to be rebuilt by April 2015?

I do hope we don't see some of the well used convenience stores close because of this. And also the impact it might have on Billings and other shops on the High Street. Hopefully it will bring people in and bring them business rather than the other way round. Problem is many people would rather go t...

I had just bought a ticket for the 'Big Fish Little Fish' parent & toddler afternoon disco there in March next year. The one scheduled for January sold-out pretty quickly.
