Re: Best Breakfast in Sydenham

Can no-one in SE26 cook themselves bacon eggs and sausages in the mornings then? BRANSTON baked beans (caps intended, if you have always habitually used Heinz like I used to, I challenge you to try Branston, I tried them once and have never looked back). Going to agree with you on the beans, Parker...

Re: Alarm Technician

I use APT Security in Beckenham (https://www.aptsecurity.co.uk/) to service my alarm which was fitted by (the now defunct) Harris & Sandford a few years ago.

Re: Laptop disposal

Currys in Bell Green operate a recycling scheme. Just drop off any electrical item and they will dispose of it free of charge.

Re: Supreme Fish Bar

Well, I agree with all of the positive comments. I popped in this weekend and was so happy to eat freshly fried 100% genuine cod which tasted lovely and was a good size. The unpleasant unidentifiable substitute I ate and failed to finish a few weeks ago, is now a fading memory. Thank you Supreme for...

Re: Supreme Fish Bar

Agreed and thank you. I really hope your supplier gets it together. I've always thought it was the best chippie in the area and this was the first time in about 15 years I've ever had such a bad experience. Personally, I'd like to resume getting my fish and chips there without worrying about the qua...

I see what you mean. I popped over this evening - the fish was good and the chips were ok.

Re: Supreme Fish Bar

The Harbour, just beyond Syd. Station towards Kirkdale is good for fish although I find the chips a bit variable. They also do kebabs etc. I agree about the chips from Harbour - they're crispy and quite oily at the same time (or at least were well over a year ago when I last tried them). At least t...

Re: Supreme Fish Bar

If they are passing off a cheap fish as cod, perhaps it needs to be reported? There’s the possibility of a public health risk there, i think. I’m so sad to read this - we’ve been getting our fish there for more than ten years. It was alway fresh, tasty and HUGE. I'm not sure what's going on - but I...

Supreme Fish Bar

Does anyone know if the Supreme Fish Bar has changed hands? There's an array of unfamiliar faces behind the counter, they're selling the smallest pieces of cod I've ever seen and I've just eaten something which I'm convinced isn't actually cod!

GFA Thanks - I'm sure a lot people would be interested to know how he's getting on . I'm sure the neighbours in Alma Place would have preferred Alan's garage to whatever the " developers " shoehorn into that space . A very good evening Nigel I just thought I'd post an update.

Does anyone know the situation with the group of East Europeans who seem to have taken up residence at the old Quaker hall in Queensthorpe Road? They seem to have appeared overnight!

Car Service/MOT

Can anyone recommend a local trustworthy, reliable mechanic/garage who can carry out my car service and MOT? I used to taken my car to Alan Hill Motors in Crystal Palace but he was forced to vacate his premises - after 40+ years!

The show covered South East London including Sydenham, Crystal Palace, Beckenham, and East Dulwich - really good to see Sydenham portrayed very positively
Agreed! It was very positive and lovely to see.
