Re: Supreme Fish Bar

Not in Sydenham, but Jolly Bee in Forest Hill (right opposite the train station) is really great. Huge portions, fantastic fish and amazing chips. Service is always good. Only thing to note is that they only take cash. Not sure if they deliver as we always collect.

Re: Water in Sydenham Hill

We haven't had water since 4pm yesterday. It now 6am and still nothing. I've just spoken to Thames Water and they have told me that an engineer will come to investigate at 8am this morning as they need daylight to do their work...

Re: Piano tuner

Give Stephen Strafford a call. He's tuned our piano for many years and he is a very nice, trustworthy guy.

Re: The Woodhouse

I went to the Woodhouse last Sunday. Arrived at 7.15pm and was told the kitchen was closed and we could not order any food. Bit disappointed but decided to stay, ordered a glass of prosecco but were told they had run out... They had also run out of crisps and peanuts!! After a bit more searching the...

Not quite local, but Intersport in Herne Hill can do this.

Re: Speed cameras on Sydenham Hill

Just to illustrate how dangerous the situation is on Sydenham Hill... was driving 20mph past the speed cameras. Huge tractor behind me was almost pushing me forwards and at the same time making rude hand gestures out of the window. Then overtook, accompanied by loud beeping, on the wrong side of the...

Re: Speed cameras on Sydenham Hill

20mph speed limit is absolutely fine on most roads in London. However, on roads like Sydenham Hill and for example Denmark Hill it is a nightmare. I drive on Sydenham Hill daily and the amount of abuse I get by sticking to 20mph is terrible. It creates many more dangerous situations with drivers ove...

Re: Central Heating Recommendation

We recently had a new boiler installed by Billy from Hunter Heating Solution. He's a great guy, very professional and knowledgeable (also very reasonable). He's got many reviews on www.checkatrade.com.

Dulwich Woodhouse has reopened

Thought I'd give you all a heads up that the Dulwich Woodhouse Pub has reopened. I wasn't impressed last time they 'renovated' the pub but this time they got it absolutely spot on. Large bar area, beautiful restaurant and fantastic garden. Have only been for drinks so can't comment on the food other...

Re: Change in speed restriction on Sydenham HIll 30m/h to 20

Speed reduction is indeed not a bad thing. I absolutely support it and it makes sense on lots of roads. On wide road however it is not very sensible, as there are too many very impatient drivers. Bad enough during daylight hours, but when it's dark it becomes very dangerous. Especially with the new ...

Re: Change in speed restriction on Sydenham HIll 30m/h to 20

I think that reducing the speed to 20 m/h on roads like Sydenham Hill actually makes this road a lot more dangerous. I use this road several times per day and have done so for many years. When the speed limit was 30 m/h I never had any cars overtaking me. Everyone seemed quite happy with that speed....

Re: Change in speed restriction on Sydenham HIll 30m/h to 20

Just a quick update... The whole of Southwark, with the exception of just a few roads, are/will be 20 miles/hour. Indeed, there are many new 20 signs going up all over the place. The police actually objected to roads which have a mean speed of 24 miles/hour to become 20m/h roads.

Change in speed restriction on Sydenham HIll 30m/h to 20m/h

Since today the speed restriction along Sydenham Hill is 20 miles per hour, down from 30. There are some signs along Sydenham Hill, but they're quite small and easily missed. Also the number 20 is painted onto the road, but in the dark again easily missed. Just thought I'd make people aware as there...
