    It's an ace shop that. Their selection of pickles is immense :cool:

    That's good, I imagine that represents his own expertise/interest. I've only looked at the reggae, mostly reissues and the more well known labels/artists, all at above average prices and not that much on 45.

    I'd go in there more if his books were a good price because he has a really good alternative/cult/fiction selection, but again, not competitive prices. He's been going a good coupe of years now though, so he must be doing something right to keep afloat, good luck to him.

    Thankfully the police are reporting that the injuries are not life threatening or life altering.

    I really wanted to like that place. He seemed like a nice guy and it was a fun idea, but I just couldn't get it when I went in.

    It really isn't :D Outside on a busy road does not make for a chilled drink.

    Much as I like Knowles I think I'll probably use it less in the summer than some of the other pubs with a slightly more secluded outside drinking area.

    I got off the bus because I needed a piss and another pint...half the tables outside were no smoking ffs.

    You can suck a lungful of diesel in from the road, but heaven forbid little *generic shitbag ashma kid name smells tobacco...

    I thought they were opening their garden this summer or did I just make that up?

    Afraid not. But if you take a walk into Tulse hill I'm sure M from Village Masaleh would sell you a pack of it uncooked (they offered to sell it to me before). Though it's very easy to make...let me know if you want to and I'll PM you.

    The tables out front that are no smoking are in front of the glass doors that open into the street, so the place doesn't fill with smoke.

    I was out the front on Saturday night. It was quite pleasant. Though at that time there were no schoolkids or commuters.

    That would be good, thanks, my youngest likes paneer with her boiled rice. If we could make it together she'd love that :thumbs:

    Jade Garden has been stripped out, including all the kitchen extractor fans. Fingers crossed for a cheese, wine and rum shop. With reggae playing in the background. :)
