Re: Hyde Housing are awful

My work place is owned by Hyde housing and they are horrendously slow. It took months and months for them to fit 2 bathrooms and that was when the contractors were on site. They kept ordering the wrong parts and things that did not fit. Finally it was done (last year) and we have just found out that...

Re: New Lebanese restaurant

I ventured in there today. Friendly owners, tasty food, good prices and will definitely be in again. Agree about the seating, not enough low down tables and chairs but understand this is probably due to it being a small space.
I wish them all the best!

Re: AMAZING SANDWICHES…

I really want to like this cafe but I too found the food and drink both measly and overpriced for what it is. The coffees are far too small ( in my opinion charging large sized coffee prices for a small cup in comparison with kente, blue mountain or sugar hill) and I was also disappointed with their...

Re: Veggie & vegan cafe

Am I mistaken in thinking it's a sofa at the back of the shop where the eating area is?

Re: Donation of toys to local children???

Hi. I did not look at the toy library website, I just called the number that was given to me by social services. I have nothing against donating toys to charity shops/ playgroups etc as they go to a good cause and are enjoyed by children. It may appear that i will just have to give toys to them as I...

Re: Donation of toys to local children???

Just a brief update. I called Lewisham social services and they do not give toys to families/children or know of any organisations that do. They also suggested to call the toy library to see if they could be of help but there was no response when I tried. I will call the toy library again next week.

It's called Wylarbo chomp.

It sounds chinese/Japanese but is in fact a salad/sandwich bar.
