Re: Toys R Us

Re: Sydenham features in The Metro

Honestly.....two posts to this very positive review of Sydenham! Yet 6 pages running it down because someone at Cafe Nero deemed it "too tatty for one of their establishment! Their loss. :(

Ell's Eels outside the Alfred

Just been to this new fish stall. Lovely addition to this end of Sydenham. Fresh cold seafood. Plus hot chillie and garlic prawns cooked to order. Good luck to the owners. Please give it a try.

Re: sydenham needs an uplifting

Ok ok I get the message Penge is great! Ha ha But I do feel that "we" as Sydenham residents like to moan about our high street.

Re: sydenham needs an uplifting

Just realised that Penge does not have nail bars and chicken shops ! Really I think you will find that they have their fair share of both and mobile phone shops and pound shops.

Never been burgled, never had my car broken into and neither have any of my neighbours to my knowledge. It's a lovely area. The high street is movi...

[quote="leenewham"]We went there on our first night in Sydenham, walking all the way up from Fairlawn Park in Upper Beckenham to Kirkdale.
