Re: Trying to contact Sydenham Tennis Club

You have to stay inbetween the lines of acceptability. That said, if he continues to ignore you, a swift backhander should ensure you have the advantage.

Re: Zanara Court

Still covered in scaffolding despite being 'open'. I wonder if there will be space for something nice on the ground floor and not a 'marketing suite'.

Re: sticky: RUMOURS: CINEMA AND NANDOS COMING TO SYDENHAM

Ellie Reeves is the MP for where the proposed shop is. Vicky Foxcroft and Heidi Alexander are the others for Lewisham.

They will alll hold regular sugeries so I would suggest turning up and asking them directly.

Empty shops

I know it's been said before in various threads but the prevalence of empty shops seems to be growing. There's now at least four or five between the station and the mother of all empty shop-fronts Budgens. Two estate agents have closed without sign of any replacement, the shop next to Kente has clos...

Re: sticky: RUMOURS: CINEMA AND NANDOS COMING TO SYDENHAM

This development won't happen. Nando's will soon realise they could have built at least two stores elsewhere by now.

Ooh! Can't wait for this. Who needs a Nando's eh.
Quite a few Jamaican outlets already though - not that I have anything particularly against the cuisine!

Re: Some sort of bar/beer shop

From the looks of it its going to be a shop called 'Bottlecave'. There's one in Lordship Lane that looks like it sells some good beers.

Re: Lemon Tree

SydenhamOwl....... so has it actually changed hands, with new people? Or have they just changed the name?! Strange about the English breakfast, haven't seen that sign. What time does it open for breakfast? I got the impression it has changed hands. The breakfast thing is weird, I walk past there ev...

Some sort of bar/beer shop

Seems to be opening (or hoping to open) next to the new development opposite Cherry and Ice and On the Hoof. I believe it used to be 'Paperchase Taxation'. There's a licence appliation on the window for a bar/shop selling alcohol.

Re: Lemon Tree

I went in here on Saturday evening. It's a bit of a mixed bag. The food is good and they have a nice variety on the buffet. However, as has been pointed out the lack of alcohol and no 'bring your own' looks like it's putting people off. A very quiet and slightly sombre atmosphere. That said, they go...

Re: Save Beer Rebellion - we need your help!

Hello all, I think it's probably best that The Poodle Club start their own thread about their new business, and very good luck to you, sincerely, if you end up serving any nice beers or ales on tap in your club then I'm sure you'll end up making good friends with any disgruntled Beer Rebellion Die-...

Lemon Tree

The Lemon Tree restuarant towards the end of Sydnenham Road (near Sydenham beds) has closed down. Looks like it has become, or is becomming, a buffet style place. Not sure if still Indian.

Re: Say 'No' to further retail at Bell Green

I doubt anything will be done about the car park until the Bakerloo line extension plans are finalised. Isn't the lower sydenham station going to be relocated to more central Bell Green? Is that even happening? I thought extenstion to Lewisham was the only potential at the moment with a possibility...

Re: Penge attempted robbery

My girlfriend and I popped into the KFC in Penge the other day. Moments before we arrived there was an attempted robbery. Police came in and were talking to the staff (some of whom were visibly shaken). They described two men, one with a knife, attempting to get money from the till. Apparently one o...

Re: Two more shops closed

There is another Ladbrooke's barely a stone's throw away however so maybe having two shops on the same street was too much even for Sydenham! Was that the result of a merger? Stuart Not sure to be honest. Just noticed there was another Ladbrooke's further down the street. Considerably closer than t...

Two more shops closed

Ladbrooks on the corner of Newlands Park and Golden Grill on corner of Sydenham Rd/Kent House Road.

Hoping for something interesting to come in their place but not holding my breath...
