I'm still trying to pluck up the courage to start a Bromley one.
Do it, I was able to run a Bromley forum, which you were a member of. The interest is there!
I suspect you know many more people from Bromley than I do.
We're down this manor now Anyone else in the SE20/BR area?
Went to the Crystal Palace Overground Festival yesterday and had a lovely time. Some events on today if you are interested.
All present and correct in sydenham hill.
We missed all the stuff in the park but had a lovely evening that started with jazz and ale in the G&G, went on to the Vietnamese place opposite the White Hart and ended with many strong drinks in Casa Cuba.
Local exploration mission for July is to sample Angel, Loafe and Blue Belle in Penge.
So some of the traders in Penge has called for rebranding the High St area "Penge Village". Not sure whether to , or .
It's going to take a bit more than that.
How did July's pub exploring go?
A bit more yeah. Seems the monthly street market on Maple Rd has been a success, so that's good. Now if only the Alexandra would reopen as a good pub it'd get positively vibrant down 'ere.
Not got to exploring as many pubs as I'd like to in July. Did have a nice and fairly cheap Portuguese meal in A Torre (spelling?) on Westow Street.
Problem is it will it stay successful or will the novelty wear off like last time.
Good question. It's only on through September I think.
Yeah it finishes in September - I think it works as an occaisional market.
BTW- Angel looks always empty and sorry for itself. I went to it a few times under its old names and had decent enough food. Been looking for an excuse to go again but it just never looks welcoming.
Admittedly I've not gone in yet, but I've only heard good things about it. OH has been to Loafe and Blue Belle and had great things to say about both of them. It'll be interesting to see what happens to the Alexandra, apparently there's an application to classify it as a Community-Based Asset (I think that's the right term) and keep it as a proper community pub/activity centre. Maybe Late Knights Brewery will take it on? On the market for something like 380k, which sounds bloody cheap (if the structure is sound).
Loafe and Blue Belle both welcome additions! Agree about the Alexandra - that would be great!
I aways thought Penge-sur-Mer sounded better. The lack of sea is no bar given Wigan has a pier.
For a second there I thought FR was back
We've got the Rivers Ravensbourne and Pool nearby up in Cator Park, maybe a pier could extend from there down to the High St?
looks like i will be living in se20 within the next couple of weeks. how lucky you all are
I don't seem to have a chitter chatter to join as I'm not quite West Norwood or Crystal Palace. Can we just merge them all and call them the Great North Wood chitter chatter?
Has anyone been to Beer Rebellion in Gipsy Hill?
Nice, we're not far then.
Yes. It's good.
Tell me more . . .
