It's those bloody foxes again, isn't it?
Clearly, I need to go more often
Coffee usually has the opposite effect.
but what became of the supposed new Costa underneath the bridge opposite the Tube (Homelook?)
Still being sorted out I think.
combined with a low plane going past. I had to look outside just to check it wasn't falling from the skies.
There was some work going on in there a few weeks back which made the displays in Superdrug shake and I feared for the health and safety of the staff on the checkout.
Someone was making good use of a bouncy castle in the Music Bar garden this evening but I note it's been taken down now. Probably for the best...
Different strokes for different folks, it'd be a boring place if we all agreed and other assorted clichés.
I used to love it as a sort of lovely if a little pricey old man pub. Now it is all bright and full of chairs and too clean and new. I'm finished with it and now wander over to the Albert or the Effra.
I must check out the Trinity.Theres not many old men pub left now in Brixton, Marquis of Lorne, the Albert. God forbid they ever Gastropub the Effra - Its not changed much over the last few years although the menu seems to have as much English as Carribean stuff these days.
They're now playing rather loud music
They painted the Effra gastropub grey a couple of years back. I preferred the nicotine yellow.
The Albert is getting a fairly big makeover soon, but I don't expect its character to change that much. Greene King wanted to turn it into a - yes, you've guessed it - fucking gastropub. Happily the landlord battled hard to stop that happening and we should have good news about live gigs too
What would happen if Greene King won? Would you still drink there?
I doubt it because I want to drink beer in a pub, not in a restaurant that serves beer.
So where would your nearest local be if you dumped The Albert?
Let me think: well, the Trinity's too posh for me, the Windmill's not free so can't be a local, the Effra closes too early as does the Beehive... keeps on thinking .... I guess the Grosvenor would be my reluctant second choice.
That one behind the police station?
The Canterbury? That closes early too.
I've been to a pub recently that closes at normal closing time. It's most unsettling
I generally don't go out till around 10, so any pub that shuts around 11 is no good to me!
I can't remember the last time I heard a last bell in a pub until recently. It was like going back in time
Yeah I remember when they painted the Effra lighter inside - It was better when it was darker.
I tried the Trinity last night - It seems a bit identikit pub makeover although the pictures of Brixton are good.
The staff were firendly.
Anyone know what happened at the Tesco/garage on Tulse Hill last night? My boyfriend heard a panicked woman running past our house calling the police and then lots of sirens and the garage taped off. The staff and security are all really lovely there and I was worried one of them may have been hurt.
Sorry not a clue. Yes, it's within spitting distance of here, but I've got a real talent for missing things like that.

What to do?

Went to the new Trinity for the first time on Sunday. Oh. My. Word.
The mushroom paint, the feature walls, the floral cushions.... What on earth has happened?
My girlfriend on the other hand thinks its much improved. Some people.
What's one of them?
