For a traditional fry up I dont think you can beat the Hill Top for consisntent quality. Propper bubble, good quality bacon and eggs just right. The Kent House Cafe is good too, but is usually full of workmen and can get a bit rowdy. Before it became Finkls, someone opened a cafe who really did not ...

Ive been using Mr Bandlish in Gypsy Hill for ten years. When I first arrived in Sydenham ten years ago had a terrible toothach and he came out at 2 in the morning. Saw him at his surgery the follwing day, a Sunday, and he only charged me the NHS rate. Good dentist and a nice man.

I would reccomend Ted Johnson of Knighton Park Road on 0208 659 5376.
He did my hall and stairs and did a fine job for a reasonable price. He always cleans up after a days work and, importantly, turns up when he says he wil.

It is some sort of hostel and last time I looked it wasn't actually empty, despite being boarded up with those metal shuters. At night you can see
lights, people go in and out of there (they have their own special traffic light!).

Splendid post Falkor, thankyou very much. Shortly after moving here I read two pamphlets from the library that listed many of the worst hits in the area and what struck me was there was always a terrble human story behind them all. I remember reading the tale of the bomb that hit Earlsfield Road, wh...
