Re: Cash Machine Harrassment

Yes, I reported something similar a while back that happened to me at the Lloyd's ATM. It is disconcerting and much ado to reclaim any money lost. As we don't have eyes in the back of our head and cash machines don't have a mirror, I reckon the best thing is to stand firmly to the right so blocking...

Re: New Cafe

As no replies to to my post I decided to give it a try myself today. A great addition to the high street is DILZ. Not suprisingly it is owned and run by a Turkish cypriot family and although not yet on the menu I asked if they could cook me a Menemen which is a Traditional Turkish breakfast or snac...

Re: Southern Timetable Consultation

Hang on, all the statements on here sound a bit like we are resigned to this change and that it can't be challenged? I thought there was a consultation, hence the title of the post. Stuart seems to have a good grasp of it, and forgive me for not, but would it be sensible to stick a white paper of so...

Re: Southern Timetable Consultation

So, basically the significant change here is that if one wants to go to Gatwick it is two changes rather than the one and on top of that seems like there are less trains? I haven't got the energy to read through the document, so I'm guessing that is a fair précis of the proposal? Just want to make s...

Re: The Golden Lion

It was good - I had the seafood platter too actually. One criticism is that the kids menu was spartan and unimaginative. They need to work on that if they are going to get families in, as even though the Dolphin is not wildly friendly to kids, it cleans up as the food is good and simple. The Lion's ...

Re: Talma -Planning Application

Sorry Steve I agree , problem is so many people trying to close pubs , which are a valuable resourse for social cohesion . It would be great if retained as a Pub to keep the community together and of course serve decent real ale. They are also a source of social neglect. I'm not quite sure why ther...

Re: Building site on Sydenham High Street

Big activity on this site then. Digging in some serious foundations. Good to see it underway finally and that the gap in the front row of the high st teeth will be filled.

And of course what the estate agent says...to be fair, I was told that the boundary lay where it was quicker to walk to Lwr Syd station. I think that might be the library then :P

Re: BEER REBELLION

I agree too. Teenage rebellion, trying to establish one's own personal identity by automatically rejecting the values of the older generation, whatever they are, is a very important part of growing up. I'm not sure that having the odd pint at a low-key neighbourhood bar could be regarded as either ...

it's like a mate's living room with beer kegs. Any more visions of hell you'd like to offer us? It's not my job to come up with your visions of hell - ask your priest. But it's based on about 25 craft beer venues in Brooklyn basically. It's completely aimed at the beard and brogue community and cer...

This could be the greatest bar ever known to humanity!!!!!!!!! I appreciate everyone has their own peculiarities but the atmosphere is, at once, interesting but unpretentious, the bar staff the same - friendly and welcoming. It is never really busy (which pleases me if not them), but most of all I ...

And I took an Uber at 2.30pm on Wed from Paddington last week and it cost me £23.41 I have only ever had one bad experience with Uber, and when I sent customer services the complaint, they put £2...
