Tue, 06 Dec 2016 10:48:14 +0000Hutong in the Shard, expensive but very good
Tue, 06 Dec 2016 10:38:17 +0000Crystal China on Tower Bridge Road gets my vote. But ask for the 'Chinese' menu (which they will need to translate) as you will be given the normal one (which is not great)
Tue, 06 Dec 2016 10:10:38 +0000Bit of a walk, but Hing Lee (32 Curlew St, London SE1 2ND) is best imo
Tue, 06 Dec 2016 09:50:13 +0000Please could I have recommendations for good Chinese restaurants, anywhere you could walk to from Bermondsey Square? We are entertaining someone who really cares about good food.
Tue, 06 Dec 2016 08:02:43 +0000Yes please
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 21:29:10 +0000The other thing to remember is that the Boundary Commission has used the current Southwark ward boundaries when drawing up the proposed parliamentary constituencies, rather than the new ones that will be used for local government elections from May 2018.
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 21:27:37 +0000Any updated recommendations?
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 21:19:25 +0000I think those of us not in Bermondsey are a bit of an addendum for the MP, and it will be even worse for Bishop's Ward. I am hoping that having Bishop's Ward will assist us in Cathedrals, but that's good for us rather than for them!
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 20:42:23 +0000Can I ask why? Why would a grown adult start shouting at a child?[/quote]
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 19:48:29 +0000LSE has digitized and uploaded "Charles Booth's London", which allows you to see poverty maps and search 450 original notebooks/documentation from police walk-abouts (1886-1903)."
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 19:40:15 +0000East Street Market! We just got one from there, it was much cheaper than anything nearer Bermondsey St.
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 18:36:12 +0000I've been three times and had food each time. Generally to solve a hangover so feeling delicate but always received and seen good service and good food. Dogs are welcome and it is all quite informal. They are proud of the food and check back part way through to check its okay.
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 16:45:21 +0000Would anyone be interested in buying 2 tickets for ice skating at Somerset House? Sunday 11th Dec at 18.45pm, for an hour. It will be lovely and Christmassy! I paid £17 per ticket but am open to offers, sadly I can't go. I live in Bermondsey and could meet you to hand over tickets
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 15:37:49 +0000Surely there is less access to your MP so far as the voter is concerned. For example, an MP whose principal focus is on Southwark wards may well find that a ward added on only to meet the electoral quota in, say, Lambeth (or wherever) inadvertently receives less attention from him/her or, alternatively, that his links/contacts with the local authority in whose area he only has one ward are weaker. In addition, it may mean travelling further to see one's MP because their base is further afield.

Mon, 05 Dec 2016 15:09:43 +0000Worth noting too that Newington Ward is proposed to be removed from Bermondsey and Old Southwark to join the new Camberwell and Vauxhall Bridge.
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 14:55:39 +0000Happy to recommend Rob Lancaster too. He retiled my kitchen. Very pleased with his work.
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 14:45:26 +0000The Anchor on Park Street is open on Christmas Day.
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 14:09:46 +0000I've just received my 2017 se1 calender and it's shite, how embarrassing for se1 residents, next year I'll do it for free.
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 14:00:38 +0000Details here:
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 13:15:47 +0000I would happily recommend Rob Lancaster. He's recently refreshed my bathroom, which involved regrouting the tiling and painting a widow and door, as well doing a couple of other small jobs around the flat. Rob was punctual, polite and very versatile in terms of what he can turn his hand to. His standard of work is excellent and he was quick to update me on how long the job would take and the associated costings. I really felt that I could just leave him to it, which is a relief when you've got a full-time job. His number is 07950 190530.
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 13:00:07 +0000Horniman, Hay's Galleria, is opening apparently.
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 12:56:20 +0000It's going to be a pizza place
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 11:59:50 +0000The Pommelers Rest on TBR was open last year.
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 10:47:00 +0000Prince of Wales on St George's Road is open.
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 10:39:43 +0000It looks like I'll be spending Xmas Day in London this year (the first time in my 60 years). I think I might like to venture out, probably lunchtime, for a Whisky Mac or even a Bloody Mary, before dinner.
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 10:34:07 +0000Hello! I'm looking for a plasterer to repair a ceiling where partition walls have been removed, and someone who can sand and seal a wood floor. Both needed as soon as possible, of course!
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 09:50:28 +0000The Grange is usually empty, and Amisha is busy. That's enough of a judgement I think. But we've had bad experiences of the staff in the Grange too, so I second the opinion to avoid the place.
Mon, 05 Dec 2016 08:37:00 +0000[quote npt]Hi All
Sun, 04 Dec 2016 16:43:50 +0000My wife and I have been in to the Grange a few times for dinner in the last year. So far we've not had a bad meal, and have had good and pleasant service from the staff and the owners every time. We haven't been in with kids, so not directly comparable, but another data point for anyone who's deciding whether to give it a try. While shouting at customers is never ok, it may have been a one-off 'bad day' - I'd be the first to admit that I've had them too.
