That place has improved in recent months
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
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
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!

Thanks to anyone who can help!
The Robert Elms show (hosted by Jason Rozam today) is all about Crystal Palace on today's show.
Quicky retunes. The park is brilliant if a little neglected. The dinosaurs
Crystal Palace Festival starts today. It looks smaller than usual, but still quite a lot going on.
Home - Crystal Palace Festival
I think we'll pop in at some point. Out today but maybe this evening or tomorrow afternoon.
Dog show 12-3 tomorrow
Whatever happened to FoxyRed?
Also tomorrow, there's a market in the Crystal Palace subway. Worth going just to see the amazing subway.
