  • And Ignition Brewery. Which is a BANGER

  • Ohh-wee I'm excited now. Setting myself up for mortgage disappointment in my pessimistic mind.

  • If you like a good coffee, you'll want to head to St David's in Forest Hill.
    SE20 Cycles also do an OK coffee

  • Oh, and Four Boroughs I guess

  • Yeah, decent coffee in SE26/nearby is limited.

  • Anyone got a suggestion for somewhere to get a half decent, inexpensive haircut? I got one last week that's a bit shit, hoping that someone more competent can sort it out for me! I'm in Penge but don't mind travelling a bit.

  • In Sydenham?
    There's a peaky blinders vibes shop, there's George's on Kirkdale, and there's two newer peaky blinders vibes.
    I used George and it's good in a "what can go wrong with a 4 all over?". The others no. There are two busy afro barbers, on at top of Kirkdale and one near the bottle cave (which is opposite the peaky blinders vibes barbers). Never used them. Both look busy though

  • When I got haircuts, I went to Herne hill.

  • Cheers! Don't mind a trip to Herne Hill so if you've got a hot tip there I'd be interested in that too!

  • The guys under the bridge. They also have a shop on the parade next to blackbird.

  • Thanks! Might give them a go.

  • Appreciate it's a bit shit for some of the neighbouring roads but the school road closure scheme has been lovely on Adamsrill.

    And in case no one got the fax Ignition is doing deliveries again!

  • Hot and fresh out the kitchen (mama rollin' that body, etc)

  • I used to rate George when I lived in Sydenham! If you talk to him about football then he will take his time and do a great job. I used to read up before I went to see him ;)

  • Despite working for a company that films football, I know absolutely nothing about football so I imagine I'd be caught out immediately, ha ha. Thanks for the recommendation though!

  • Just don't call him a hairdresser. And if he's gala don't talk about besisktas. Or vice versa. I think he's gala.
    He was totally fine for "2 side and backs, 4 on the top" and level of chat was dependent on how much you responded. Also next door to 161 so buy some wine.

  • "2 side and backs, 4 on the top"

    all this barber chat really makes me want to get my hair cut short
