We went to Wright Bros, just for drinks a few weeks ago and had no problems at all, although it's not cheap.
It was a Monday night though and empty.
I completely agree with you about Borough Market
though. I used to love going there, and now I just can't bear it. It's too crowded, full of tourists and some of the stalls are incredibly expensive. Went there a few fridays ago to get some vegetables from, the big stall near Furness Fish, I forget the name, and ended up spending over 20 quid on basics and I was dismayed by the quality- not very fresh.
People like Jamie Oliver have really promoted Borough Market
and buying fresh food which is brilliant, however, I think it is in danger of becoming a victim of its own success. I agree that some kind of local residents loyalty card would be very welcome. I just can't afford to shop there all the time anymore.
