    I tried one once. It was disgusting and came with a ridiculous amount of packaging. The cheese literally had no taste at all.

    Dreadful stuff. It all smells the same to me. I have to hold my breath when I pass by.

    I didn't move to London until 2011, but it was there then.

    I should patent my Shit Shop Blanking Out technology. I've walked past their countless times!

    Just had a look on Street View, and it's also there in the oldest image which is August 2008 :D

    It's been there for a couple of years, at least...

    Edit: just seen the above - ignore me!

    May also be trying to fill the gap left by Angels and Gypsies/Communion bar.

    They at least have some nice sounding veggie options on their menu.

    Went to Good Neighbour on Saturday... it was decent enough while it was 50% off, but if we'd paid full price we'd have left hungry and pissed off.

    The £12 (full price) cheese plate is a really pathetic amount of food.

    That's pretty much how I felt about Nape.

    bimble noisy but small

    Buddha jazz (Denmark hill) has closed. I’m a bit devastated, really loved that place.

    Camberwell Green in South London was recently revealed as the only neighbourhood where more children have a BMI of 25 or above than are healthy, according to Public Health England.

    The ward, which saw a seven per cent increase in the number of takeaway outlets between 2014 and 2017, ranks alongside eight others in London that make up the top ten worst areas in the country.

    Here is one tabloid's assessment:

    Is it any wonder children in Britain's FATTEST neighborhood don't know what a vegetable is? The takeaway-lined streets that reveal the alarming scale of our obesity crisis

    Wish I'd seen this earlier, the queue was too long by the time I got there a bit after 6!

    It's great that she played such a lovely old boozer in her 'hood though. I would have loved to have gone.

    Wow. So many thriving businesses big and small, poisoning children with bad food and creating pressure on the NHS. And another plug for the revolting greengrocer which specialises in selling food seconds before it goes rotten.
    Anyway the travesty is always Mum's fault in these articles
    :mad:

    We were on the bus going past that at about 7pm - we wondered what the huge queue was for.

    George & Bill semiotically superfluous

    The fruit and veg he sells arrives fresh and stays on sale until the last possible moment, but falls in price as it gets towards the end of his life. But sure, you can continue to shop at places where anything past its prime gets chucked in the bin and covered in chlorine, if you prefer.

    Some people want to open a micropub on Camberwell New Road: The Camberwell Shark

    Sounds a bit wanky, but I'm not going to turn my nose up at another place to go for a pint!

    In related news, I noticed earlier that Grinders (the newish bagel/coffee place next to the Stormbird) have a licence application in their window too.
