Many moons ago before

Mc Donalds, Burger Kings, Pizza huts, Chinese and Indian restaurants sprouted onto the high streets, about the only place for miles around you could get grub once the pubs shut was a chippy come burger bar called The Jolly Friar in Bexleyheath.

Is it still there?

  • If you are talking about the Crook Log end of Bexleyheath, then i think its yet another kebab shop now.

    Used to be a newsagents called Poors next door to the Drayman, used to be run by two old dears, both looked about 90 for years. Now derelict.
  • Useless bit of info I know, but the first McDonalds in the country was the one in Woolwich.

    And a mate from my school used to work there. I'd finish my stint in Sainsbury's and pop round for a burger. Trouble is though, coz Ash was a mate, he would fill the bag with a Big Mac, Quarter Pounder, Fillet of Fish and a Cheeseburger for the price of a burger. (Thinks - been overweight for years and I can't understand why....Hmmmn)
  • hope you binned the fillet of fish immediately !
