    I’ve been to a couple of Pergola venues for birthdays - they’ve been universally shit. Food and drinks run out constantly, massive queues, overcrowding x

    Aren't you supposed to use the app to order food from any restaurant in the market and it is brought to your table? Most restaurants in the market have very limited covers so they will probably appreciate it - if their micro kitchens can keep up!

    They're making a big fuss out of their Tablesnapper app which, admittedly, is a clever way to get even more boozers and foodies rammed into the Village and turn this new space into an extended dining room with, no doubt, DJs a plenty.

    Of course, people will still have to wait if the units downstairs can't cope with demand.

    They're also all pumped up at having the "independent" Heineken-backed Brixton Brewery onboard, ensuring that the beer keeps flowing (and the piss keeps reigning down on the doorways of Brixton after).

    I know of at least one person living in the adjacent arch who is well pissed off by this billionaire backed scheme. He can't even fully open one of his windows and he's going to have to put up with the sound of millennials scoffing and whooping every day.

    Have you been infected by the Daily Mail?

    Come on. You can do better than this. If you don't agree with any of my comments, try constructing a counter argument rather than nonsense about the Daily Mail.

    And being annoyed at people pissing in doorways is hardly reactionary right wing. It's a growing problem in Brixton - a place where the council rubber stamps more and more licensed premises adding pressure to the already microscopic provision of public toilets.

    I wonder how many restaurants in the market will sign up. As you say, many have micro kitchens.

    Will market restaurants have to pay to use the App and the ‘runners’?

    I used to order from the Lebanese place in the market via Deliveroo. After complaining about it being cold/late/things missing a few times in a row, they contacted me and invited me in for a free meal. They told me of their constant issues with Deliveroo and how it just wasn’t worth the extra orders.

    I’ve given up on Deliveroo - meals either turned up late and cold or just never got delivered

    Yeah same. And no I don’t want a £10 credit note for my order turning up with items missing and what was there stone cold, I want my fucking money back!

    We order Chinese from Hungs in Streatham. They royally fucked our order up once, took nearly two hours and quite a bit was missing, it was a big order. Rang to complain and 20 minutes later the owner was on the doorstep with the missing items and a few bonus dishes. He always delivered our orders after that. Now that’s service.

    I guess the app will take a chunk of their cash, maybe the venue too. I can't seem to find anything about them on the web.

    Yeah I looked for the app and couldn’t find anything.. hope it’s ready and tested thoroughly ahead of time

    I'm trying to get a piece from an artist in a nearby arch. He's been here for years on end, wasn't consulted about this development and now he finds he can't now open his window properly because of increased vibrancy.

    LIke the people at hungs. Also the delivery guy who always seems to be in Football kit (including shin pads)
    Normally go to collect from hungs. That way,the wait is much less and you know it is hot when you get it home

    This is exactly what will happen, it’ll take a big slice of the cost.
