I'm moving this weekend (fingers crossed) and that'll be my new route to work.
probably quicker to walk from camberwell to brixton...
I'm moving to Peckham.
There a three churches on that strip already...
I'd miss the bingo crowd..
How old are you?
I had a lovely sunday dinner in The Sun & Doves the other week - quite a nice pub is that in Camberwell?
Had one there the last Sunday. They do good roasts. Consistently good there too.
Thanks for letting us know you were around. etc
Rather lush I thought - I was there not sunday gone but the sunday before - I spoke to some bloke with a dog
Speaking of the Sun and Doves, there's a bit of a grumpfest going on over on Beer in the Evening website:
Someone has a grudge!
It's a friends local foody place
If it's the fella I'm thinking of he's all right isn't he! There's generally a good crowd of people in there, never seen any trouble... yet!
He seemed ok - think I've seen him a few times, he thought i was the police at first
Dog is called Angel i think
Fair point though.
Mmm, the photos really don't do it justice I guess. Point agreed!
That is one good bunfight going on. They should move it on to urban for entertainment.
Went to Loughborough junction arty thing - was enjoyable though it did start to rain. I use to work and live in the area so have explored the back streets alot - still -it was a good exhibition.
Is that our very own BoxRoom I see joining in?
The whole point about Loughborough Junction is that it is not Camberwell - it is a place between Brixton and Camberwell that feels marginalised and overshadowed by its neighbours so the exhibition is one stage of building consciousness of Loughborough Junction.
Yeah. More "don't lump us in with that shithole Camberwell, we're better than that!"
Talk about holes, Gala bingo is in the worst cesspit around. What a dump. My mate claims it will be the new Ministry of Sound since they are shutting down in Elephant. Want it be a laugh watchin' drug dazed clubbers exiting into urban 'vibrancy' in the wee hours.
What do you love, hatecaberwell? All this negativism is downing my aura.
We tried to go to the new tapas place on Wednesday - Angels and Gypsies. Unfortunately I am unable to report back because it was absolutely rammed, and no table to be had until 9.30pm. So we went to Caravaggio instead - I love the old school waiters there.
Gala bingo is a good. Its social & just a nice place to meet people. (I bet you have never been).
And there are plenty of drug crazed folk in camberwell exiting the Maudsley & other unlicensed drug establishments all day long.
That's a shit church, as far as I know. Sunday mornings on that stretch will be fun then, with the various worshippers coming and going. However, I suspect the bingo-ers might have a better idea of it's next use than your mate's speculations.
It will be a great shame if it becomes a church or is redeveloped into private housing as that will be a loss to the Camberwell community.
I suppose the site might be redeveloped as a supermarket - I believe Sainsburys or Tesco wanted to open one on the site of the bus garage near there about 5-10 years ago and set about buying up the freeholds of places nearby to allow a bigger site to be developed/ to allow access but TfL then changed their minds and wanted to keep it as a bus garage and also retain the option of redeveloping it as Camberwell station. Not sure what the current state of play is on that.
The food at Caravaggio is fit,esp the gnocci.
We tried the Silk Road the other day was suprisingly nice but not so good for veggies.
Has anyone tried Su Thai on Coldharbour yet? Def recommend it! The tofu in red curry sauce with lime was one of the best meals out I've had in a while
Silk Road is great. Thanks for the tip about Su Thai - will give it a go soon.
Toilet attendants? I hate places who have them. Awful.
