    The food in Reunion is fine and the garden at the back as lovely as ever.

    That is indeed a shame, more than once I went in for their BCM - beans, cheese and marmite on granary toast :thumbs:

    Yes, I used to like that! BCM is very easy to replicate at home and became one of my favourite working-from-home lunches.

    I enjoyed Domali occasionally when I worked in CP. Also liked the enormous veggie sausage and salad sarnies. That was a frighteningly long time ago though...

    The food in The White Hart is really good. We go about once a month for the quiz and I've never had a duff meal there :thumbs:

    I’ve had several duff (vegetarian) meals there over the years but, as I say, they’ve certainly improved.

    I'm the same as you. I used to go there quite a bit years ago when I was working nearby and then occasionally after and it was always busy. I've no idea why they decided to relaunch and the whole buggy-gate thing when they seemed to be doing fine.

    Really? I hate it. They're a total chain (Mitchell and Butler like the Commercial in HH) and it's all out of the freezer and then microwaved etc. Treat yourselves and try the Sparrowhawk some time.

    I used to like the White Hart but got fed up of the relentlessly crap veggie menu options.

    Any long term residents of Crystal Palace able to help?

    The dinosaur area in the park used to have a mock up "lead mine" and several caves with (fake?) stalactites etc which people could go in. Best info I've got is that these closed in 1993 - presumably due to safety.

    I would be interested in hearing what they are like inside if anyone has been in them in the past. Surprisingly I can find no photos or much information online - no Urbex etc!

    Here is a pic of the now gated off entrance: Stock Photo - Entrance to lead mine Crystal Palace Park Bromley South London London England Great Britain United Kingdom Europe

    Thanks to anyone who can help!

    Quicky retunes. The park is brilliant if a little neglected. The dinosaurs :D

    I drove past this cordon earlier, about 4pm. Fuck these cunts with guns. A fucking high street in the middle of the afternoon? How dare people take their ridiculous, inflated sense of importance into a public place.

    According to media reports:

    Disturbing.

    I read he aimed at a car window and it bounced off the window. Bullet proof glass?
    A loss of any life is sad, but, isn't it ironic!

    Increasingly, the taking of this "ridiculous, inflated sense of importance into public spaces" is no longer limited only to those with access with firearms.

    In the latest example of bizarre police-speak, the Metropolitan Police have declared this Sunday afternoon shooting in broad daylight as "non-suspicious":

    Police declare death of man 'who shot himself' in Sydenham as non-suspicious

    Hopefully, when the inquest into the killing of the Late Reece Marvin Ramsey-Johnson is opened on 26 September 2019, we will all hear exactly how "non-suspicious" this all is:



    This is "non-suspicious"?
