New restaurant!

I seem to have completely missed it. So until we try it out, I point you in the direction of the Parklife blog review here

Regent to reopen

Thanks to various commenters we learn:

The Regent is going to reopen as the Parlour (http://parlourkensal.com/). No more information - I hope they still server burgers. 

Also the Island is being refurbished; it will be interesting to know how they change it. We've always had a great meal in the Island but it's been quite quiet (the restaurant bit). Perhaps it will become more integrated with the rest of the pub, but I used to like how it was a bit hidden away. 

For once not just parroting what commenters say, I noticed tonight while driving past that the IT/telephone shop opposite the overground station had been gutted and it looked like it was going to be something different?

Update - ah, maybe it's this, which being an A2 suggests another estate agent?

Ps we were noting today that Kensal Rise doesn't have any charity shops at the top end, and just that newish one down the bottom end. Yet West Hampstead ten years ago had at least five, maybe more. Is that a good or bad sign?
