Tue, 28 Mar 2017 19:25:59 +0100Hi Christie
Tue, 28 Mar 2017 19:16:30 +0100I'm pretty sure they advertised the one on New Kent Road as "Borough South" before it opened. Geography not what it ought to be.

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 17:00:56 +0100There was a planning application but I don't think it was ever validated by the council, let alone determined.
Tue, 28 Mar 2017 14:42:45 +0100Hi lucysalisbury - I've just you a private message, with a name of a company. Let me know if you didn't get it.
Tue, 28 Mar 2017 14:29:25 +0100I have seen other people with him at the back of the shop on a couple of occasions recently, so I don't think he is totally alone.
Tue, 28 Mar 2017 14:12:43 +0100[quote Sophia1967]Same thing happened to me. He was looking really good for a homeless person so he must have been a scammer. He walked away immediately after I told him I had no cash with me. Could you smell any alcochol on him? Because I couldn't.[/quote] I couldn't smell alcohol on him, which is a bit strange for someone who'd been on a stag night :)
Tue, 28 Mar 2017 13:06:54 +0100Ah, that could well offer some context - though no excuse IMO. I was oblivious to the demolition.
Tue, 28 Mar 2017 12:44:46 +0100Yes I noticed that too. Making up streets now.
Tue, 28 Mar 2017 12:06:27 +0100Oh dear #fail
Tue, 28 Mar 2017 11:13:24 +0100Aren't they closing soon to allow for the demolition of the building? Might explain the lapse in standards.
Tue, 28 Mar 2017 11:11:19 +0100Although the restaurant remains closed, Mr Hasan can be seen sitting inside, at the back, in the dark - doing possibly not much (I can't tell for sure and feel it would be rude to take a prolonged look through the window).
Tue, 28 Mar 2017 10:30:26 +0100SBR: Southwark Bridge Road.
Tue, 28 Mar 2017 09:20:57 +0100Can anyone recommend a local person / company / restaurant who can provide catering for a house party, probably around 50 people? Ideally I wanted to avoid sandwiches and such like, open to ideas!
Tue, 28 Mar 2017 08:38:31 +0100Just thought I'd share our recent experience of Tesco TBR. It has been a while since I've been in there and standards have dropped drastically. The store was dirty, with black marks all over the floor and brown spots where food items had clearly spilled and not being cleaned up.

Tue, 28 Mar 2017 03:11:38 +0100So sorry to hear others are suffering too. I always know when the academic term has started due to the increased level of noise on Tabard Gardens, which many students & late night revelers use as a way back home. Luckily I'm a bit of a night owl so I'm not usually too disturbed but it is very annoying and it seems neither Southwark Council, The Dover Castle(and other nearby licensee's) nor the halls of residence management teams are too concerned with the matter. Unless you have very good double glazing & don't mind sleeping in a hot summer with your windows closed, the noise mostly is a nuisance.
Mon, 27 Mar 2017 22:59:20 +0100Thank you! What's SBR?
Mon, 27 Mar 2017 21:31:39 +0100London Bridge High Street? That's a new one on me. LOL
Mon, 27 Mar 2017 12:19:06 +0100another one bites the dust
Mon, 27 Mar 2017 11:00:13 +0100Was waiting for the missus outside a shop when I was approached by a chap in his early 30's. Bald, dressed casual but smart, he asked me if I speak English, and then that I must be the only one because everyone else is foreign. He then went on to explain he's not "some weird homeless person", but that he'd been out on a stag night and didn't have any money, at which point I interrupted him and said that neither did I. He then left.
Mon, 27 Mar 2017 08:56:01 +0100Sadly a further Coffee Shop / Pret or Estate Agent is likely! I can't see McD getting approved re: smell around the 'luxury' development, which makes Itsu all the more likely.
Mon, 27 Mar 2017 08:39:54 +0100Probably Pret (or Eat or Itsu), Starbucks (or Costa or Nero) and Sainsbury's (or Tesco). If we are really lucky we might even get an Estate Agent.
Sun, 26 Mar 2017 21:21:42 +0100Thanks for the update. I'll be back in town soon so will be sure to swing by. Tanner St park is just great in the summer.
Sun, 26 Mar 2017 18:07:00 +0100Yup, Pique-Nique, it's going to be a sister restaurant/cafe to Casse Croute on Bermondsey St itself.
Sun, 26 Mar 2017 17:45:18 +0100Does anyone know what the building in the south-east corner of the park is being redeveloped into? There was some consultation info posted online a while ago, but I haven't been able to find anything saying what the outcome of that was.
Sun, 26 Mar 2017 17:35:22 +0100[quote hughknew]Sorry if I wasn't clear. I want 20mph speed limits on residential roads, and they should be enforced. What I meant about it being dangerous to observe 20 mph was simply that because 20 is rarely enforced, most drivers go at 30 and get annoyed with drivers observing the correct 20 limit. If the 20 limit were better enforced, drivers would not ignore it.[/quote]
