Re: vote for the best coffee in Sydenham

I enjoy the lattes in Brown & Green in Mayow Park. Sorry for non supporters of chains but I also enjoy the coffee in Costa by Sainsburys. I used to be a regular in Kente but no longer; sadly it has gone down hill so much.

Re: All Inn One

Never tried the roast but have had home made soup and goulash there which was delicious.

Late Knights - Beer Revolution

Just popped in for a drink and loved it. Worth a try especially for beer drinkers (funnily enough!).

Re: How to dispose of small dead electrical items

Definitely outside your house is the best option in the first instance. I usually leave overnight and very few items have not been taken. The other thing is Freecycle. Advertise them as broke and you could be surprised. Over the years I have got rid of countless items including a broken washing mach...

Re: Shirin

I think the other post is slightly misleading as it isn't strictly speaking Lebanese. For people who check here and not there I thought the felafel wrap I had was excellent but the coffee wasn't. The owner is Persian and has had a business in the area in the past. He is very friendly which for me ma...

Re: New Lebanese restaurant

The felafel wraps are excellent but the coffee wasn't. I agree that service is slow.

Re: Possible Burglary threat

This is such a common tactic it seems. We were burgled about 3 years ago now by some young lads doing just this. We were out but they had been knocking on doors to find out who was in etc. I've learnt you can never be too careful.

Re: New to this forum - seeking community space to hire...

I have absolutely no idea if this would be a goer or not but Kente (coffee shop on Sydenham high street) has a room downstairs. Perhaps pop in for a coffee and ask George (owner) if it could be used.

Re: Girton Road Car Park

Does anyone remember the encampment on Silverdale in the mid 90s? The caravans seemed to be there for ages and ages and one day they left and sadly, yes, there was an incredible amount of mess left behind.

Sydenham Monthly Food Fair

We came across the food fair at the end of April quite by chance and are wondering if it is a regular event now and will be happening next Sunday.

For anyone that missed it, it was on the new square by Lloyds Bank.

Re: Decent Hairdressers in Sydenham

I have been going to Mastercutters for a few years now. Have had my hair cut by different stylists there and never been disappointed. Scott, the manager, has been doing it now for at least 3 years I think but possibly more. I like it in there.

Re: Looking for a good kitchen fitter and builder etc

We used someone called Martin a few years ago for our kitchen and he was great. I would recommend him without hesitation. The boiler in that kitchen was fitted by British Gas although I have heard good stuff about Progas and will be using them to replace the boiler in our current house. We have used...

Re: Favourite Five Books

Peter Pan, JM Barrie - the first proper book (as opposed to short stories) I read. I remember reading it in one sitting when I was about 7 and loved it. Clouds from both sides, Julie Tullis - she was a mountaineer who died on K2. The book was so inspiring (although I have never dared try mountainee...

Re: Moving to Sydenham

I have lived in Sydenham for nearly 20 years and am used to it so I like it! Mayow Park is a lovely park to chill out in. I think there's an increasing sense of community with the various events that run during the year. I like the transport links.

Not sure if anyone is reading this BUT on the off chance people look up car boot sales I shall now review the one I attended yesterday at Wimbledon dogs (although, really it seems to be nearer to Tooting!). I was there by 7am, not the 6am I had intended, and was in a pitch by 7.30am. The downside be...
