Re: Current state of the property market in Sydenham

The Standard hasn't covered Penge in its Homes & Property supplement for 5 years (if you exclud pilfering of the Alexandra Cottages for Sydenham and the dinosaurs for Palace features) . The area has changed significantly since the last time.

Re: Sydenham Market

The Penge Food Hub ( https://twitter.com/penge_food ) are worth checking out in short term while you're waiting for a more local presence. You order the farmer's and local artisan foods on their site then pick up (and have a pint) down the Goldsmiths on a Thursday night.

Re: A Leaf out of East Dulwich Forum's book?

This doesn't apply so much to Penge Tourist Board, because it's a Facebook group, so we know who if anyone is making any money from it, but I doubt if we'll ever know how, and how much. But the Admins will be entirely voluntary, motivated by the same community spirit as the Admins here. The PTB is ...

Re: Sainsbury's Bell Green

I occasionally use the Penge, CP and Bell Green sainos and they all frequently suffer from empty shelf syndrome and the BG and CP ones often have ridiculously long queues. As a company they seem to have lost the plot.

Re: A Leaf out of East Dulwich Forum's book?

Talking about moribund forums, has anyone been on Virtual Norwood recently? :-( That was a great forum. I don't even live in CP but I met a few others via that and as a result formed a neighbouring community group, the PTB. The owner of VN made some terrible decisions though in his efforts to make ...

Re: New St Christopher's Charity Shop

The land is increasingly reverting to a messy eyesore, and people have started to use it as a parking place which means, unless they have a tiny Smart car, that they end up blocking our rear gate and preventing us from using our car.

Waiting for the Bakerloo is a major long term ambition, surely. Isn't it only coming to Lewisham by 2030 and no guarantees beyond that.

It reopened a few weeks ago. It's great, 2-3 times the size, more seating, good lighting and bigger range of beers.

Re: Penge Indians

There is an eat in option at the Himalayan but with just two tables you may feel a little self conscious.

Himalayan is great though and the 9 veg side dish is wonderful for veggies. Belash is ok for meat dishes but not that spicy and not great for veg. Penge Massala is better but not amazing.

Re: Been to The Greyhound yet?

Personally I find booking of tables annoying. I was in there about 8.30 on Sunday night and had to stand because two tables still had Reserved signs on them.

I live just, and I mean just - literally a road, over the border in Penge. I liked the Beer Rebellion and was an occasional visitor.
