    so I finally got chance to visit the bread and roses after its refit.
    the beer selection has increased, 3 cask ales now and a good selection of lagers
    inside the paint job is subdued and the seating has been reupholstered to match
    both the outside areas have more seating and have been tidied up with more greenery
    happy hour every evening til 7, £3.50 a pint on most pints, £3.70 for a pint of wandle at all times.
    fairly quiet when I was in but was filing up.
    sitting outside at the front having a puff and two yuppies stopped outside and considered coming in but moved on pronouncing it to be
    " grim" so they must be doing something right......recommended :)

    Did you go during the happy hour perchance? They advertise £3.50 per pint at this time - but do not disclose their normal price.
    If their normal price is in line with Clapham generally it will be £4+ by now (would have been £3.60 maybe 2 years ago)

    Sorry for cross-posting in various threads... but I'm looking for a Mon-Fri lodger/flatmate to take up a single room in my house in Oval - £105pw + bills. Can be flexible around move-in date.

    £455 a month for a single that's only Monday to Friday? What on earth are you smoking? I pay £200 more for a double full time, and without a live-in landlord.

    And that doesn't include bills! Adding 115-130 per month or a minimum of 1380 per year.

    I have a Monday to Friday (well actually Tuesday to Friday). The room is let on the basis that at the weekend it is free for me to use which is handy if i have friends or family visiting. Sheets are changed and the room cleaned of course!!

    I get that it works for some people, but I'd expect a hefty discount on the rent for that - and this room just seems the standard price for a single!

    Well I guess the test is if it gets taken!
    I'm astounded at rents these days. When I first moved to London I rented a furnished two bed maisonette with garden for £600 a month! Won't even get you a room now :(

    Lidl were selling industrial packs of ultra sharp kitchen knives last week.
    How appropriate can you get? They must have a buying algorithm which indicates a large demand for knives amongst the youth of the area.

    Anyone remember when a bar in Brixton opened up called "bang bang" - weeks after two people had been shot in the local KFC?

    Possibly. Something going on. Although it was the Mcdonald's end of Acre Lane closed with police tape just now when my partner went to Tesco?

    I just found this piece of racist, anti-semitic shit pinned to a telegraph pole in my street in Clapham North. The creases are from where I screwed it up before I thought I should keep it and share it with the world.

    Hope you don't mind that I've shared the image on Facebook.

    Well it's a bit late to ask now ;)

    No, of course I don't mind.

    I've reported it to the local Bill as well. No idea if they'll respond.

    Knowing the bastards round there, they probably put it there!
