The Shop & pubs

With a small one now in tow we don't go out much, especially on Saturday evenings. So we took the opportunity of grandma in town to try out The Shop. We had two cocktails, and they were very nice and not too expensive. It looks good in there. Obviously aimed a young crowd with loud music (the horror) but the staff seems friendly and we had a good time.

We then mean to go tot the Chamberlayne, but had to abandon that as it was too busy. And this is now a problem with the Greyhound shut, there is only really one 'pub' in Kensal Rise, with the others quite a way south (the Island is quite near I guess)

Also, there seemed to be (was on the bus so didn't have a good look) something selling clothes, perhaps a charity shop, on Chamberlayne Road towards Kilburn Lane.

I don't go much but The Island is good for a drink or a meal.

The clothes shop is in what was the Italian deli, Mangia e Bevi. Haven't been inside but from the window looks like slightly high-end second-hand clothes rather than a traditional charity shop.

Its a charity shop. For something called "Centre For peaceful solutions" ??. Not much in there right now but it's always good to have a charity shop in the area.
