What can I say? The town is a mess. The unnecessary vigour to tear down the old theatre and replace it with a new one as now spread to the Bancroft Gardens. Every inch seems to have been dug over and turned to mud. Fences and scaffold surround everywhere in sight and I felt sorry for those who had travelled from France and Japan (seemed like the only two kind of tourists in evidence!) who had made a long journey and who were missing the old town at its best.
Forgot to mention. Eating out tonight at the Robin Hood Zorro in Hammersmith. I go there a lot. It’s the best little restaurant in my neck of the woods but it seems like its my secret. Great food, wonderfully trash decor, imaginative cocktails. What more can you want? Go to the Robin Hood Zorro!!!
