Hi ,i,m planning a visit to SE1 next year ,been away since i was twenty one , and now want to see this new Bermondsey of yours.
So can anyone tell mee if theres any of the old pie n mash shops left , especialy in Tower Bridge road
I'm pretty sure Manze's in TB road does eels too. there's always a queue at lunchtimes, they even have a little roped off area in front of the shop to keep the queue in order!
Personally, I've never really liked pie and mash... now if anyone can recommend a good fish and chip shop....
Jan , i use to love Joyces you,d stand at the counter ,waiting to get your food and they would be preparing the eels in front of you ,
In either of the pie n mash shops you could bump in to people such as ,Tommy Steele,Wee Willy Harris,and others,i knew tommy at school ,we went to Bacon school for boys ,in Grange road ,
Jan to you remember buying hot jam doughtnuts just down the road from Manzes
