Dear Timothy and S.Bennett

I am working on a project in an old Gunners Butchers and was wondering if you have any photographs of the GR logo which appears inscribed on the tiled walls?

Or any other images of the interior or front facade of the butchers?
Anything would be gratly apprecisted.
Thanks

Alice

Remember going into there years ago and asking for Hot and Sour Soup....and got a container of sweet and sour sauce watered down! There used to be a nice restaurant in Tooley street, the Great Wall , probably closed now, excellent Chinese food, but pricey.

Oh boy, it was just a simple comment if the Chef/Cook/ has deserted the original recipe..or worse still the Shop changed hands. I repeat I have never eaten a pie and mash like it and if it was my first time of trying it I would never have eaten it again! Manzes to me was the epitome of pie and mash.

I have carried pie and mash all over the country to family members who have moved, as a matter of fact my husband carried loads of it in his hand luggage to South Africa, the licqour in pickled onion jars, pies and mash in Tupperware containers .

I know now that Manzes deliver their goods to you via post etc. And have been told that when they arrived they were delicious. The reason for my original post is that I am leaving my beloved wonderful SE1 and was going to fill the gap in my life was by ordering and having it delivered! But having had a manky pie experience with other people saying the same, am not so sure!

Thanks James, much appreciated - I will give them a try.



[SE1 Discussion] Re: Manzes pies.

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 10:25:42 +0100

I will need to try these pies one day to pass judgement. But all the pies I ever seen in the UK had a super thick layer of crust which is a real turn off for a French palate...
I think businesses need to evolve with time to survive and increasing your offer range (different spices, different meat) can only reach out new customers without alienating your old faithful ones...
And ok, you can get pie wrong and not to everyone's taste, but how hard is to do proper mash!

Zoe, stop being so PC.
Witches are both male and female.
Thatcher was not just an evil Tory, she was truly wicked and worked her magic and spells in destroying the miners and did so with great gusto.
Wicked witch suits her most admirably.
Much as I admire Corbyn he is going to have to weather much larger storms than being Mr Punch.

Silwood sounds like a disgruntled cook-worker-manager-owner with his brusque response but he does make a good point in denouncing the idea that the pies need spicing up and if not spiced up take your own Tabasco sauce.
Let's hope Manzes never follow Maurits advice on how to lose customers.
We go to Mannzes because we like our pie and mash and stewed eels as they are always prepared and have been since our childhoods, not with the consistency we would hope for but close enough most of the time.
And in the meantime Maurits can buy meat samosas, make his own parsley sauce and chilli mash potato and enjoy his spiced up version at home

I cant say I've noticed a difference in 33 years?!!!! I go at least 2-3 times a month (greedy I know) but it still taste the same to me!

My friend has the same experience yesterday, I've told her to complain to. Her husband ended up being admitted to hospital. Will be interested to hear how the member of staff is treated or if they are dismissed.

Hi everyone,

Anyone aware of what happened to Machine, the bicycle shop/coffee place in Tower Bridge Road, it has been closed for the past week or so... Hope they didn't shut, they did most of my morning coffees!!



[SE1 Discussion] Re: Manzes pies.

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 08:27:45 +0100

Thank you for your comments, Silwood. I think I was well balanced in my remark that, indeed, Manzies 'has the pedigree that not many others have' (to use your well chosen words).

Many in the food industry would disagree that we shouldn't change original recipes: I think Coca Cola adjust their products to more contemporary preferences as well as McDonalds and many others.
I guess it all boils down to it being a matter of taste: de gustibus non est disputandem.

Luckily we agree on Manzies being a terrific asset to Tower Bridge Road.

[SE1 Discussion] Re: Tate Modern

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 07:57:41 +0100

No, Ivanhoe, I agree. Seemed to me that there was a lot of underused space. It was just a flying visit though and I'll go back today or tomorrow and spend more time there. I will be looking at the building rather than the art work though, I didn't much like the stuff on display. But that's another thread and probably a different web-site!



[SE1 Discussion] Re: Manzes pies.

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 07:49:53 +0100

Are you lot sure? One day in 67 years when the pie-mash in Manze's weren't as good as it has been all Jan the old one's life and you get people like maurits telling them to change the original fast food recipe with spice, and for people to take in Tabasco Sauce to put on it!
And Ladywriter1968 needs to get a grip on reality and not base her choices on one person's opinion. Go in and make your own mind up, you know Manze has the pedigree that not many others have.
Manze is up there with the best; always has been and as long as they don't change anything (Spice FFS!) it will remain there.
What the Old One needs to do is go elsewhere and then she'll find out what she's missing. She'll soon come running back with her tail between her legs.

[SE1 Discussion] Re: Tate Modern

Thu, 29 Sep 2016 07:22:55 +0100

Dare I suggest an alternative view (no pun intended). The view from the new extension is not actually that good. The immediate buildings crowd out the middle and far distance which is where the landmarks are. Its quite fun watching the 'installation' of rich grumpy people pretending they are not on display (aka Neo Bankside).

The extension itself - lifts are unpleasant, the members room is claustrophic and usual problem with badly behaved entitled family groups, the space for displaying art is disappointing, the central staircase (especially the fabulous concrete benches) is fabulous but takes up almost all the space.

My favourite bit is the smashed glass door leading into the staff only section (with serious dent in the adjoining wall). I have been speculating that this is where Serota found out he was being forced to resign and had a tantrum...

I agree. It's not very good on the inside, though, imho.

yes Borough bloke I had the same experience years ago when I had a serious injury and could not get up stairs- Jackie R - I agree - I does take two to tango - re the current issue I had not visited the surgery for 5 years pre- I went in with a cheery manner and was greeted with rudeness and aggression x 2 within a week. If you look on here or here or NHS choices you will see these experiences are frequent- if you read my original posts I am not saying all on reception staff are the same- however it happens on a frequent basis.
Jules you would have no problem picking her out in a line up - however not just her-as my nana used to say- a fish rots from the head down.
