Review of Penge by on September 24th, 2007
It is a great little town with friendly people - there are a few problems that should be dealt with and one is that the number of cheap pound shops and also the amount of fast food restaurants in the area which bring it down. Has a great furniture, kitchen supply, curtain shop plus Sainsbury and ethnic food stores which are great but there is no where nice to eat and drink which is a shame as there is demand there.
People are wrong when they say opera is not what it used to be. It is what it used to be. That is what's wrong with it. - Noel Coward
