Get used to it. It'll get much MUCH worse once the councils start charging for emptying bins by weight.

For anyone who's really up for a quick one I'm sure there's a thread about speed humps somewhere.

Nork1. So, some people can't afford an 8 quid breakfast. Boo hoo. I can't have Brad Pitt's looks and an e-type outside my front door. Life's not fair. Get over it. Just because I can't have these things, I don't resent other people who do. Wahey! The obsessive class and demographics statistician is...

Another thread seems to be that if you want the highstreet to improve you are deemed a Snob. I think the sooner we can move passed this the better. Improve in what way? You want gastropubs/deli's/coffee shops/antique shops/galleries? That might be an improvement in your eyes, fair enough. What abou...

Maybe we could just cut and paste East Dulwich into Sydenham High Street and be done with it. I am all for improving the high street, and I am as aspirational as anyone else. But the tone of some of the posts in this thread and others has nothing do with improving things and more to do with removin...

No, South London born and bred. Been to Canada a few times - Toronto/Vancouver way... never been to Quebec - my grade 'U' O level French kind of put paid to that.

All in one sports pub/kebab shop/strip joint. They've got them in Hamilton, Canada - supposedly the most boring conservative country in the world so why not here? (Ok, maybe I made the kebab bit up but you've got to eat sometime).

A decent jerk chicken place and a pub like The Hob in Forest Hill or the Gipsy Hill Tavern.

Calm down, I wasn't actually referring to you.
There are people on this board who won't go into a place because it's seen as pretentious, there are others who think anywhere that doesn't serve ciabatta and sauvignon blanc is beneath them.
Works both ways.

You don't like BM/Dolphin. Fair enough. What is not always fair is the attitudes, desires and net worth you attribute to those that do. You appear to dislike people you don't know. I find that quite chilling. So, not dissimilar to another contributor on here, a Dolphin regular who dismisses anyone ...

Re: Perry Hill

I have eaten there too and it was very nice for a more upmarket/formal meal but virtually empty on the Wednesday night we went and the one table of customers in the bar area didn't really fit in (a bit rowdy). How inconvenient. Pubs are being closed down or turned into restaurants ('gastropubs'). W...

It was an isolated incident. A couple of months back a drunk bloke was thrown out of the Dolphin then came back and put a window through. I don't know if this was an isolated incident but I won't be visiting again to find out. Civilised behaviour is rather more important to me than the food, beer or...

I agree. I was just picking up on an earlier comment "The Railway would be a perfect cosy cool bar if it was upgraded.". Change just for the sake of it doesn't necessarily make a place better. Remember, the Greyhound was totally gutted/'upgraded' by the Firkin chain when there was no reaso...
