New signage in the windows say 'Fine Food' ... I hope so as I am starving!

Fine Food should be a success given its location. I was struck by how small in scale the block at the corner of Wilds Rents is today, compared to adjacent and opposite blocks.

I wonder if this translates into market pressure on the owners to sell into redevelopment?

How do smaller scale buildings survive when the pressure to increase density is so great?

Regards to all

For a contrast in scale locally, take a look at the relationship between the looming Tabard Tower and the proximity of the whole development to the houses on Tabard Street. It's impossible to ignore because it now dominates the local skyline from any viewpoint - and it's not even finished.

Hi all

Haven't been following this thread, but does Jilly's bar still exist?

Even more signage today. I have to say it, the garish blue actually looks rather good now that the logos have gone in ... it's a bold statement, and rather elegant. Hopefully the food really will be fine and not faux-fine.

Its going to be called Miss Jones and signage comes with some Turn of century Parisian style illustration. We like.

Am impressed with what I see so far! Looks promising.... Since I live in Blue Lion Place, I'm hoping that the food on offer will be interesting and good value for money too. Am awaiting with anticipation....

Catmeat too sineous for kebabs. Lamb ideal; perfect ratio of fat to flesh......

I think Miss Jones must be a bit of a tease. The buildings repainted and a new shop front put in and then nothing for several weeks. Then lights and nothing, then a sign saying fine foods, another wait and most recently the name and address and more art work as part of the signage and then again another wait to see what happens next. With all this build up of anticiaption of good things to come we could end up disapointed when it finally arrives.

Internal spot lights have been installed and through the windowlene, with nose pressed to glass, I can make out some rather nice looking old dresser-type shopfittings ...
