Has anyone heard what's happening to the tea/coffee shop/ museum in Southwark Street
? Now that the Borough Market
Trustees have forced the wonderfully eclectic Shipp's Tea Shop closure I thought that I'd pop round the corner to have a cuppa and listen to the pianist of fond memory in Bramah's,but I was confronted with a scene of desolation,just paint pots and emptiness.Woe was me !
Please,don't tell me that we're about to be blessed with yet another Starbucks
,etc.? We crave a little eccentricity these days !I went home quite depressed.
