Anyone else upset by the Bermondsey Street
article in this week's Time Out? No mention of anything that wasn't opened in the last year or so except Manze's and that's probably only because it gets used so often by TV people.
The art in Sobo was described as affordable. By who I wonder?! I tried it out and found the coffee and cakes barely affordable. I've tried the Bermondsey Kitchen
3 times and had cause to complain 3 times (ever asked for a sharp knife because your cabbage was too tough?). The Hartley
has no atmosphere and looks like a horribly cynical attempt to woo the residents of The Jam Factory. On the half dozen occasions I've visited The Garrison
I felt I had entered some kind of designer's ghetto. And how is it possible to get the best T shirts in London in Bermondsey Street
? I mean, it's a bloody t shirt, how good could it be?
Actually, all ranting aside it's kind of nice that there is an inreasing mix of people in the area, I just can't stand all that "upcoming" BS that Time Out spins out every couple of weeks. I hope it all blows over soon so we don't lose our neighbourhood to them.
ah-ha, ever get the feeling you've been cheated?!
stick yer frothy lager.......
