Re: McDonalds on the High St

https://sydenham.org.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=18471 The window and door frames are already in and in the KFH branded colours.

Re: Trains post May 20

I believe the London-bound trains off Penge East are going 2 minutes earlier, and the ones in the opposite direction 5 mins later, FWIW :) Plus there's supposed to be a 2-minute interchange onto the Thameslink route at Herne Hill. I haven't dared look at the Sydenham services yet, particularly sinc...

They are actually having a refresh right now, they were painting on the weekend. It's no longer Blue Mountain, I think it has been re-branded Cobbs Corner Cafe so I would hope they do the awning too :)

Re: My spooky followers on Twitter

There are loads of twitter bot's in use that crawl twitter looking for mentions, keywords or follows. The only way to avoid it is to set your profile to private. I tweeted once about almost putting deep heat on my toothbrush rather than toothpaste in a moment of tiredness and just hours later I was ...

Without wanting to seem like advertising, I go to specsavers as you can get 2 pairs for the price of 1, as mine are for reading/computers, I like to have a pair at home and a pair at work :)

Re: 194 bus (and others) avoiding Beckenham

Thanks for letting us know, I would normally take that route this evening! Thames Water are in attendance it seems. https://twitter.com/thameswater/status/994965821087797250 We're aware of a burst pipe on Beckenham Rd #BR3.

It's not a sticky thread :)

There was a different thread that was sticky but was de-glued/de-stickified when the Greyhound opened. :D

They sent me a letter stating I would get a £100 cheque as we were without water for 5 days, iroinically my water meter was broken for almost a year without them realizing which meant I was not paying for water anyway.. and still getting the £100 :) Not received it yet though so maybe they have figu...

Re: Poundstretcher in old co-op site

Is it possible that it could be where the Ring O Roses wedding dress shop used to be? I understand there was planning permission open up the space to include the old pub / working mans club that was there.

Also, the outside seating area is starting to look really good with the plant boxes.

Re: Been to The Greyhound yet?

I think the dining will be downstairs, else why has the dumb waiter been installed? Also, there are tables outside today! Probably not for dining though :D When I got home last night around 6pm there were several diners sitting outside, so they do seem to be okay with that. Those tables should at l...

Anyway, RE The Greyhound, I've not been in yet, and p[robably won't now, because my friend has just tried and posted a photo on a plate full of the fattiest looking lamb you'll ever see, for which she paid £16. And the most pathetic tiny and burnt looking kids burger, which cost £7. If you're spend...

I swear to whatever deity you choose to believe in or not believe in, if the parents of the burgular demand action because their little cherub had his life cut short I will go mad.

Re: Been to The Greyhound yet?

It's a gastro pub. Which is what the owners intended and we all knew and for the most part we welcome it. The "pub" you are describing is called Wetherspoons. Personally I prefer the Greyhound the way it is attracting the clientelle it does. If the regular pub experience is more your thing, that's ...

Give me strength! We've waited for years for the Greyhound to re-open, it turns out to be better than most of us expected, decent beer, good food, a pleasant space to sit in, and friendly helpful staff. And it's only been open for a couple of weeks and already the moaners have started. I'm sure the...
