Replying to Stringfellow, the pub opposite the Golden Lion is the Dolphin - a beautiful building but very much in the tradition of Sydenham's dodgy boozers! It is closed - in fact there's a notice on the door saying that it has been reposessed... but I've heard that it's opening up again with a new ...

I would say that the best pub is in Forest Hill - the Dartmouth Arms... if you're travelling from Croydon it's just to the left of the station. Two bars (one of which is non-smoking) and a restaurant - with special offers throughout March!

Hi Soulfood
Whereabouts do you live? I have a brilliant cleaner but she's not keen on travelling too far...

Hi Amanda
On the noticeboard in Well Being in the high street there is an advert for yoga in pregnancy classes - one at Holy Trinity Church in Lennard Rd and the other in Penge I think. Sorry, did not have a pen so could not take down details!

West Norwood is also on the line to Victoria - two trains an hour, takes about 15 minutes!

Sydenham Town is far and away the best - much more exciting, great content, easy to navigate - and striking design. It deserves to win!

New betting shop for Sydenham?

House of Curtains, at 59 Sydenham Road (on the corner of Queensthorpe Road) is currently displaying a notice on behalf of Portland Bookmakers who are applying for a gaming license. The Sydenham Society object to this - apart from the loss of a shop in the core shopping area, there are already three ...

Good parks: Crystal Palace and Wells Park - which has a lovely cafe - great on a sunny day! Good places to eat: Ghurkas and the Turkish restaurant (next to the Golden Lion); Zucker's cafe opp LA Fitness on Kirkdale - which is also child friendly (someone else asked about that!). A bit further afield...

Fresh and Fruity on the high street is brilliant - and the people are lovely too! Mr Boston the Butcher on Perry Hill is fantastic - organic chicken, meat from named farms etc. The Turkish shop on the bridge near Cobbs Corner is also good for fruit, veg and big bunches of herbs - as is the Mediterra...

Sydenham Road regeneration

The kinds of business that Kster identifies as being part of a 21st-century successful high street (bars, boutiques etc) are more than likely to beat a hasty retreat from Sydenham in its current state - from the pathetic Cobbs Corner roundabout to the uneven, chewing gum-stained pavements and batter...

Is the Grace House part of Sydenham Avenue in LB Lewisham or Bromley? If someone could let me know that - and the street number of the development - I could try and find out what's happening there.
