Putney Bridge Approach, Bishop's Park Road, Fulham Palace Road, Fulham, London SW6 3LA
This is possibly one of the best parks EVER!
A riverside walk
Football and Rugby pitches
a lake area
Children's playground x 2
beach, boats and paddle area
Dog exercise area
A nearby Palace to visit
Bowling Club and it forms the walk from Putney Bridge tube to Fulham FC, one of the nicest, atmospheric walks to football in Britian!
Did I leave anything out??
56 London Road, London SM4 5BE
This place has been here for Yonks...with its burgers, milkshakes and more. British style so expect a knife and fork to eat your Bender burger or Chiken dippers with. Often busy with families and elderly this is not a place for young people to be seen, unlike a McDonalds in other towns because...errr..it's a Wimpy. And don't us Brits just love that?
54 London Road, London SM4 5BE
We like Gregg's don't we? I mean there is very little I would eat here unless I was on a no bread diet and even then I would want a yum yum doughnut. This branch in Morden is no different. Tasty staple winter fare with good sandwiches, cheap prices, nice cakes, pies pasties and doughnuts. Give it a go!
Stevenage Road, Fulham, London SW6 6NP
This is my footballing mecca and home of Fulham FC. I first visited this place 21 years ago and return every 10-14 days for another home game of the mighty Fulham FC. I hope as a Fulham supporter people can read this review and take on board some good knowledge without making abuse comments as I was there when we were poor and dreadful, so being in the Premier League means I feel untouchable to your comments!
More to follow when I edit and add photos soon....
London Road, London SM4 5BT
This site has had a supermarket for decades. It was a Co-op department store at one time only to become a Presto, a Safeway, a Morrison's and now a Sainsbury's. At first i didnt think Sainsbury's was a good fit for Morden, but its staple offering of quality fare mean that it is has fit in and kept a lot of its custom from the Safeway days.
There is a car pary beside this store for lazy shoppers, but this is not owned or managed by the supermarket therefore it charges. The local council love to make money out of nothing and pretend they have no money, but parking is free on Sundays and it is easy to find a space. Come here for your needs and be met by an average shopping expereince
19 London Road, London SM4 5HT
With its Burger King like logo, this place opened in December 2005 and its bright lights have kept the pavement visable outside its store for the last two years. In reality, it is a good choice for getting a kebab in the local area. I have had nothing, but enjoyable tasty food from Kebaby since it opened and think it provides great value for money.
It isnt far from the tube station so take the walk over the road and have a look, although the website will make you hungrey in advance. Finally, it is Ke-Bab-ee and not Ke-Baby because despite the spelling they sell lamb and chicken, not child!
20 London Road, London SM4 5BQ
Superfish is nice. I like it, but it is the sort of place that feels quaint and English therefore to eat there I have to make it a sit down issue. This branch has been in Morden since the dawn of time (not really, just as long as I can remember) and it has often been popular. Its fan's really rate it and I don't blame them as it is old school, yet modern. I do love the range of fish available here that is a definate plus, they have loads in stock and it is fresh tasting too.
15 Abbotsbury Road, London SM4 5LJ
'You can go and eat your Chinese food, over drunken fools singing eighties tunes, they will be singing out of tune saying "Get the foreigners out of my area"' sang Morden based Good Shoes in their 2007 single 'Morden'.
This was the place they were reffering to. Something of a cult hit in the area, Gourmet Buffet earnt a repuatation for being good, being cheap and then hosting karaoke if you take a party of 15 with you.
I havent seen the karaoke machine out recently, mostly because I go there for 5 pound lunch, because dinner only has peking duck and a couple of rather nice dishes extra for 10 or 11 pounds. Go, take some friends, call in advance on 020 8640 1115 to book the karaoke machine as you have to eat here and can't just turn up for a sing. I dont reccomend seeing if you can make some racist comments to see if Good Shoes were right, but if you do go say hi to Chinese 'Dave' who is a huge man who always makes me laugh and has a warmth that brings regular customers each and every evening!
Morden Hall Road, London SM4 5JD
The Morden Hall is often forgotten about by me as it cannot be seen from the main road and is set behind a wall in the beautiful Morden Hall Park.
Just because I don't rate the place, doesn't mean you might not like it as I discussed with my friend before she asked me to meet her there last week. It is a great place to eat, have a midwek business meeting or at the weekends take a couple of friends or the kids for a meal in a lovely building, use their car park and take a stroll round the park thinking you are in the countryside.
I personally am surprised it has survived, isn't worth the trip (all of a minute or two) out of the town centre. The food is good and they have a couple of good offers for a fivr each on the chalk board at present, but I beleive the Morden Hall to be overpriced for what it offers in terms of drink and lacking in atmosphere for a drinking session.
Morden Road, London SW19 3BX
I use this tramstop almost twice a day. There are several good things about it and several I would improve and warn users about.
Trams usually within 10 minutes in rush hour and 20 at weekends
Because of its location you can change between the 93 bus and trams
It is quicker to get the tram to this location then walk to Wimbledon or Croydon
No Oyster top up or card transacation machine
Trams have only one track leaving towards Mitcham and Croydon from this station so you have to wait here quite a while
The local shop is about 3 minutes away and does not have Oyster facilities
The 93 bus and the tram both going to Wimbledon seem to turn up at the same time!
The interchange between the tram and bus towards Mordena nd North Cheam is problematic and dangerous in the dark
Personally I would redesign the interchange...
