My apologies for the lack of updates recently; between working and making the most of the dog days of summer, I took my eye off the ball a little.
Speaking of balls, I’ve discovered the upstairs bar in The Castle has a TV projector suitable for watching football; unfortunately the seating layout is pretty poor, so you have to get there early if you want to sit in one of the leather booths. I did for the Wales v England game, but I’ll still be using the Cadeleigh Arms for club football. The Castle do a mean (that is, good) burger, by the way.
On the bank holiday Monday the wife and I went up to the Sun & Doves for a bite of lunch; there was a barbecue on, and it was fantastic to drink an iced cider and eat a proper lean burger in the sun. I would recommend it, but you’ll probably have to wait until next summer now.
And that’s kind of it, although I’m pretty interested in Mark’s post about a Camberwell forum and may get involved in that; I have an idea or two involving this website. I was pretty disappointed when the old Texaco garage reopened as a hand car wash; I know I shouldn’t knock someone with the enterprise to run a small business, but does it have to look so ugly?
No movement at the former Bee’s Auto Bits or Blake House, as far as I can see, which makes this a pretty unedifying roundup. Anyone care to add more?
