    So what are you saying here? That no one should ever party again until there's peace on the streets?

    Just come out and say it if that's what you think.

    Not sure why this response to someone raising an important local issue is being rammed home.

    I think GarveyLives is expressing a fair perspective on how invisible recent tragic events are to many Camberwellians including me. He added a sour note to our chitter-chatter. We have only been mildly chastised.

    It's possible there's other beef I don't know about but I'd rather not see it escalate here. editor your question is ridiculous.

    It's that he does this everywhere and never bothers to actually comment or bring his own pov, rather preferring the copy paste of someone else's work.

    I've been in there once.

    I don't remember a lot about it, which suggests it's neither terrible nor amazing.

    For non-pretentious dinner in Camberwell I like the Greek place.

    Perhaps you should look up his posting history. He does this often. I might post up some photos from one of my nights and he'll respond with another cut and paste of some unrelated tragic incident. I'm not sure what else I can infer from his posts.

    I certainly didn't read it as no-one should enjoy themselves ever. Regardless of intention, all the sniping seems ineffective. Anyways, this is tonight

    That menu is just so insipid and uninspiring...

    Not surprising really. The trains are already rammed, the recent timetable change clusterfuck will take ages to smooth out, and TfL have no business interest and tightly squeezed coffers.

    One day, maybe, but not soon.

    I'm quite pleased tbh, overcrowded trains aren't going to help anyone. I also am glad the Bakerloo is going down the Old Kent Road, serving areas which I think are more in need of extra transport and offers a handy link to the Ginger line at Queens Road Peckham. I never thought the Camberwell station idea was serious and the consultation/feasibility a sop. A minority view I know.

    I'm more bothered about increasing capacity at Denmark Hill Station, proposed upcoming cuts to bus services in the area (eg 45 no longer running to King's Cross) and traffic management problems (including cycling and walking routes).

    What's the camberwell bus to bakerloo extension situation? *goes to look*

    Probably easier getting the current buses that already go to elephant castle.

    This place is very good. Went on a tuesday evening and it was full which immediately indicates in quality and popularity.

    Main dishes such as pasta and pizza around £7 with more complicated stuff going up accordingly, authentic Italian waiters and delicious Italian food. I feel quite lucky to live so near to somewhere like this!

    Walworth Road. :(

    I think the 42 should continue down Albany Road instead of east end of East Street. :hmm::thumbs:

    Certainly need to do something about denmark hill. I don't quite know how they managed to build a new station entrance and fail to provide the necessary capacity. The whole thing is remarkably badly designed. Network Rail have no idea about good design, almost everything they do is bad.

    Matt The Cab Live it like you love it

    Not that bad, and you suggested the prices won't hit you hard.

    Warning - if you fancy a starter then you may not be able to finish your main. Also and I know it sounds silly considering the cuisine but the pasta dishes are the best

    Looks like Anspach & Hobday (Bermondsey brewery) are opening a bar in what used to be Cycle PS

    BoxRoom Flip.

    What happened to Cycle PS? I didn't realise they'd gone!

    Seabass is good, I am told.
    Cycle Piss has been moribund for a year at least Relentlessly empty.

    Bet they found out about them upthread and not by noticing them on their commute.
    In other news ..
    The story of Burgess Park in WW1 was unveiled today and there are connected events on Saturday
    Zeppelin | Friends of Burgess Park

    And cycle ps has very quickly mutated into a popup craft beer bar (likely open until January. Mainly cold fizzy modern 'pale ale'. No casks, one cider. I went on Sunday and it's basically a Storm Bird spillover venue. They have dartboards so not good when crowded.
