    Cheers, might visit this weekend. I don't do online socialising, my other half does and certainly signed up to the friends of. If I remember rightly, it has a few womantic connations for us. Certainly have a history going back a few years what with the likes of Critical Mass.

    telbert Do you like sponge?

    Last went there bout 3 years ago.Never been back since despite working on a few different jobs very near.A fucking photocopy of some cold wafer thin processed salt beef,covered in yellow vinegary mustard substitute with a couple of slices of bitter pickle in stale bread is not my idea of decent food.

    In defence, Gabys is probably the cheapest place in the area for miles around. They do a good kebab, falafel, salads n stuff and is infinately better than any of the fast/junk food places around. They deserve support as it is a small business fighting a mega rich anonymous landlord who is stuck in his pile a million miles away!

    Aye still there - went there a couple of weeks ago with my daughter for falafel - very nice it was too. I like Gaby's!

    Really bad news :( massive rent rise and they are only offering 1 year rents.

    The woman who ran the save it campaign last time isn’t hopeful :(

    Oh no, what sad news. I love Gaby's. I hope by some miracle they stay.

    Reno The In Kraut

    I used to go there a lot in the 80s and 90s but then they didn’t do my favourite thing anymore (chicken schnitzel in pitta bread with salad and hummus) and I rarely went there. The food just wasn’t very good anymore. Still a shame, it will probably become another Prets.

    Used to send for take away many times after critical mass and had dates in there. There are worse things it could become than prets :(

    When I visited London last weekend, the number of Prets seemed to have doubled again. I see a future where all shops in London will be a Pret.
