it would be quite funny if the Fort became full of 'trendy newcomers' because they've read so much about it on this website...

Since having my eyes opened re the Fort I've been taking notice as I pass it - still not seen anyone coming or going (I probably could have phrased that better) so couldn't comment on whether any 'trendy newcomers' have been tempted in!

I just heard that the Royal Oak has been turned into yuppy flats. And there's Foot and Mouth at the Clyde.

Foot and Mouth. Would that be Anton Foot and Danielle Mouth, the gastropub reviewers?

...if you press it, they will come.

"trendy newcomers" - is this the new black?

I've been meaning to visit the Royal Oak ever since I found it on a Sunday wander. From the outside it's the best restoration of a london local I've ever seen. No knockthrough, original floor, fab etched glass windows... marvellous.

PS It's since been turned into an All Bar One , so, err, don't go eh... "I'm the only newcomer in this village" :-)

I have to stick up for my local, the Lye Torng. Okay, it's a silly name, and to those of us who have lived here for a while it will always be the Gibraltar. But the beer's good, the staff are friendly and the Thai food is fresh, delicious and cheap. All it needs is a few more people!

I've used Lye Torn, but as you say it needs more people, not sure if you have noticed that their prices have increased aswel. We used to eat in there quiet alot but have noticed that the bill we are not getting is about 8-9 more than before. Try the Prince of Wales, it's usually busy and the staff are friendly aswel.

Lye Torng has lovely food, pity they are going to spoil things by putting up the prices. Is it as much a good pub venue as the Oak or the P. of Wales??
