Saucy Sausage, Croydon

When I first spotted the Saucy Sausage along Lower Addiscombe Road, Croydon I had to refrain from doing a childish giggle simply because of its name. If the name was created to make it a talking point between locals and passers-by it certainly does the trick, though you do have to be looking pretty closely […]

What The Pitta, Boxpark Croydon

Inside of a vegan wrap by What The Pitta in Croydon's Boxpark

Boxpark Croydon is a place that I have had mixed thoughts on for so long and had, as a result of being uncomfortable about the concept, refused to step inside.

The Day I Went To Croydon Business Awards 2017

The Treehouse, South Croydon

By midday last Sunday I was absolutely exhausted. Travelling back from Yorkshire on the Saturday should have given me plenty of time to relax in the evening before my 5am alarm but the rota changed and I found myself unable to get to sleep with my fast-forwarded 3am alarm quickly approaching. At the end of […]
