Zanzibar Alternative Uses

The Cinema option is something that a gentleman who is part of "the film mill" was doing a bit of research for (I spotted it in an old post and replied to his survey/him) - He suggested he was still looking into doing something on a small scale in Sydenham. I suggested looking at "Whirled Cinema" (h...

Re: Change of use 98 Kirkdale ( Behind the Boxes) to takeawa

Hopefully council will refuse as there are already a number of takeaways very close by and this is, as one member rightly said, probably about 100m from the school. It's not that I'm against takeaways per se but it just seems as if 1. There are plenty already in the area, 2. It's not likely to have ...

Re: Where's a good place to go for coffee in Syd?

Somehow managed to come across this old post which became a bit of a forum about places for ideas/places for people to take kids to, not just where has the best coffee etc.. Anyways, came across this on the Kirkdale Village Facebook Group so thought would post it up here for some who may be interest...

Re: Christmas Tree Recycling

One of my pals got an eco christmas tree of sorts this year and was pretty happy with it and considered the price not too far off what you'd pay for one off a highstreet/garden centre. You basically get a live, locally sourced (or as local as possible!) christmas tree for X days over the period then...

Re: Pavilion closed

I've noticed in all this chat about pubs in Sydenham (and in other threads) there is never really any chat about "Foxes" or "The Bricklayers arms", which although is maybe ever so slightly closer to Forest Hill is definately closer then The Dulwich Woodhouse. Any reviews!?

Re: Thank You to Billings

Re: Microbrewery - tomorrow, one night only!

Beer Rebellion is indeed a lovely little place to drink, especially the downstairs granny living room and hidden small outdoor quarters. On my last visit, whilst propping up the bar and having a good old chinwag with the staff seemed to indicate (as well as some of the "decor" downstairs" that it us...

Re: Microbrewery - tomorrow, one night only!

I've been to beer rebellion opposite gypsy hill station (their first pop-up/now permanent I think small pub) and the ales and feel for the place are first class. Well worth a visit to this one night only thing and/or the pub. Be worth having a word in their ear and ask about opening another one roun...

Re: Christmas Card Café?

Maybe a tad late and similar idea but you could always do a cheeky little secret santa if people know each other a bit/wanna do something a bit more fun. Everyone interested chucks their name in, someone takes charge to randomly pull names for people (I'm happy to do so if this flies as the organise...
