Re: New shop opening?

No idea but would be good/nice to know! A small restaurant I think would work perfectly on the high street - wishful thinking but a small Thai, Tapas, Mexican or other would be amazing. The corner St Christopher’s and the large double unit opposite Pure Gym both have change of license applications ...

Re: AMAZING SANDWICHES…

I find this hard to believe - I had to wait 20 minutes for my sandwich to be made for what was advertised to be a toasted pastrami sandwich with cheese and gherkins. When it finally arrived it felt rather light but I took it home and upon unwrapping it found there was one miserable piece of meat ,no...

Re: Pavilion closed

Hi Had a very nice drink in the Dolphin on Friday - haven't been for a while but ambiance was nice and decor festive. The prices are the problem for us- same as e.g Merchants Tavern ( Angela Hartnett ) in Shoreditch for food and drink! £6 for a bottle of belgian beer ? This cannot be right. We need ...

Re: The Railway Pub

Hi I am also bothered by fact the name of The Railway has changed to The Pavilion (why? ) - cricket?again why? It's on a railway bridge for goodness sake. Apart from it being bad luck to change the name of a pub I am surprised this had not been raised on the forum before. Unless of course it was ano...

Re: Cattery or Cat Sitter

I can highly recommend Catcalls Uk - they have a website too. We have used them for over 10 years and they are highly skilled and reliable and recommended by Mayow Vets. They will also water plants and put lights on and off if you ask them. Our cats are too nervous to go in a cattery so it was a gre...

Re: THE OLD CURTAIN SHOP IS GOING TO BE…

Yes I suppose with the formation of a pocket park on Queensthorpe and therefore road the closure it will be a 'dead-end' anyway ! But seriously Robin there is already an undertakers a few doors up- why do we need another one?? And as for availing myself of trendy restaurants etc- I know plenty of my...

We went to Re Masaniello's last night and fully endorse all the positive comments made. As seasoned travellers in Italy and enjoyers of good food and wine ,we were delighted by this restaurant's proximity to our home!

Crystal Palace c. 1918

I am trying to find out more details about where both of my Welsh grandads were posted to Crystal Palace in 1918 ,although we do not know if their paths ever crossed. One of them was in the Royal Navy and he told my mother that during his time stationed in Crystal Palace they were put in submarines!...
