They have been dismantling them bit by bit for weeks. Since new year.
didn't notice. The first time I noticed a gap was after a storm and there were loads of chaps looking agitated in Hi-Viz, in the rain. If there is a plan to reduce us to a Queens Road or South Bermondsey they're taking their time about it.

Whereas it’s of course perfectly fine for you to think those who don’t ask around first before asking here are lazy, it’s not so okay imo (and I suspect a majority of posters here) to expect others to conduct themselves in the manner you deem as appropriate, and castigate them if they don’t.

Asking on a local message board about something you’ve observed in your local community is one of the chief reasons for message boards to exist in the first place, and it actually matters fuck all whether the person asking the question has exhausted all enquiries on the ground beforehand or not.
Exactly why I don't give a shit for your point of view.

Do you use this station much?

I spoke to him yesterday. Give it a try and you might get your answers.
My first encounter with the guy outside the Co-Op came as I glanced at the near-carpet of betting slips, three smashed up paintings, and destroyed chair on the way into the shop. Unprompted and apropos of nothing, he made an extremely explicit sexual remark. So I would suggest that TulseBoy made a pretty accurate reading of his friendliness or lack thereof, and equally that it is perfectly reasonable to ask the question on a forum about local community happenings.

Perhaps, Nanker Phelge, you might be kind enough to let us in on the secret of what the guy is up to and how long he might plan to hang around. I can't say I'm feeling particularly comfortable about passing him now.

I don't think it's right of me to share his business here with strangers.

I think I could go as far to suggest that he probably isn't very well.

Has anyone tried the Thai place - Siam niyom? Any good?
Yes and yes

Tried a few weeks back and managed to get a Friday night table for 2 on spec - it was fairly full.
Think it is popular and they are working out how to cope with that, service friendly but a little chaotic. thought food was good.
Good luck to them
 
Digging into southern rail's twitter, big leaks were reported in the Tulse Hill platform canopies over winter and they said they were scheduled for repair.
They've been doing weekend work on the rails either side of HH too - meant to be extending that to all night working next weekend as well.

It's good news that they are making it work. Google reviews mostly good.

Will give it a go at some point.

I went with gaijinboy just after it opened and it was really yummy - very good food and excellent service. Haven't had a chance to go back but I'd like to.

10% discount for take away orders. Just saying.
We got a takeaway from there last night and it was ace. Staff v. nice and friendly. Interior was lush, which made me almost wish I'd booked a table.

Given the location it's never going to be busy on weekdays, hardly any footfall. But hopefully they can get by on weekend trade and deliveries.

We went on a Tuesday night and it was full. I cycle past it on my way home every night and it's always at least half full.

Not sure about a booth but there is a shop on Station Rd that we use for passport photos. You could try that.

I don’t think so. Is this for passport/visa photos? We got caught out on a Sunday and ended up in Snappy Snaps in Camberwell. Which was less than ideal but the nearest place we could find.

Yeah- kids ones you can’t do online. TN ended up in Clapham snappy snaps.... and J’s passport photo is in a hull city football kit with a slightly muddy quiff. The things that happen when I’m not supervising!

Had my hair cut in the new Barbers this morning. Roand (he said it was Roland without the L so I guess I am spelling it right and he said it means Eagle - hence the name of the shop) seems like a nice chap.

I had a no2 all over, including sideburns....£9

A good cut, a good price. Open daily until 8pm.

There are four barber chairs in there, but he is on his own for now.

Good luck to him.

Firefighters in attendance outside the jerk chicken place by the bus stop. They have a ladder against the facade and are pointing torches and trying to look to the back of the row of flats above the shops. No smoke or smell of burning detected though.
