    Keeping fingers crossed! Would be good to have a decent pub in such a visible location.

    Phew! They are keeping the name as 'The Tiger' and it is expected to open on the 25th. Nice to have a refurb and a welcome visual addition to the main drag - let's see if it turns out to be a decent pub. It appears to be owned by this lot. Solid Sarf London, but the only other of those places I know is the Dog Star and it's a different kettle of fish entirely.

    It'll have those people lurking in the toilets trying to bully money out of you then.

    Try the EDT ot the Jam Circus near me, closer to their usual

    Know some of the guys in the management, generally pretty sound, want a decent pub with some decent food - everyone of them make their stuff on the premises, not boil in the bag, shocking really......:cool:

    Yeah I'm hopeful that it will be a good addition to the Camberwell scene - its a very prominent visible position in camberwell town centre and so shouild bring benefits for the whole local area

    This is choice. An exhibition featuring the people living in LJ?! Seriously?! No doubt millions of people will travel from all over the world to have a gander.

    If you wanna see the 'beautiful people' of Loughborough Junction, just go hang out under the rail bridge (look for giant sign 'insert enema here' and watch your head in case god finally gets round to sorting the place out).

    How will an enema affect your head? I suspect you don't know your head from your arse.

    Bit of background to the exhibition. HateCamberwell appears to be avoiding the point spectacularly.

    Happy?

    Went to the exhibition today and really enjoyed it. Some great portraits and saw parts of the area I wouldn't have seen otherwise.

    Didin't get a quiz sheet cos it was so popular they had all been taken.

    and thumbs up for the Cambria - a top pub!

    You do have to give them credit.

    The title says WE ARE LOUBOROUGH JUNCTION. What is means is what it doesn't say WE ARE NOT CAMBERWELL.

    Very clever rebranding. Can only help. It really isn't Camberwell, though they are both shit.

    Oh, my mum went. She loved it. Deluded.

    Your user name and all your posts are about how much you hate Camberwell (and Loughborough Junction). Do you do anything else? It's bad for your health to be so negative.

    Just let him/her have his/her moan. I'm finding the comments mildly amusing, tbh, and everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    It looks like a nice idea - using the area to showcase people from the area, maybe :hmm: Like the photos. Glad they had the weather for it.

    I think Gala Bingo is closing this Sunday.
    All the ladies say its to become a church..

    My mum had a right strop when dad asked about her day out at the exhibition with the Camberwellblogian Guardianistas. They are the group who regularly try to stick up for the downtrodden ‘diversity’ of Camberwell (the cast of Shameless) but draw the line at wine not perfectly chilled wine and tapas not true to a particular region of Spain. “Boris the bufoon doesn’t understand the working class!!” “That cut of ham is not truly Basque!!” And of course to be a member of the true brigade you must cycle AND you must call for the end of capitalism, or you aren’t a true cyclist.

    Gala Bingo will be a huge loss. Not. A new church will bring hope to the downtrodden diversity. Maybe a worship hall for those who follow the religion of the green agenda? You think the smoke smell was bad, wait till it’s packed with hippies working up a sweat but wearing no deoderant.

    Perhaps it becoming a church will be a good thing for you, HateCamberwell...you could do with some light in your life....it must be exhausting for you being so perpetually cross.

    Am not appreciating no busses along Coldharbour Lane at the moment. How many weeks is this going on for? Gah.
    If I wasn't so lazy it wouldn't matter!

    I'm on a 345 right now, going up Denmark Hill rather than CHL. Doing a grand tour of Herne Hill. Alright when the traffic is flowing like now, but probably adds 30 mins to the route in peak hours.
