Meet the team

Bob Hay

Managing Director

Telephone: 020 8655 1300

Bob knows a thing or two about loyalty, being a Manchester Utd season ticket holder and having a daughter and son, Hollie and Lewis, who both work for Streets Ahead. Bob’s children and grand-children, Lilly and Livia, are the apples of his eye and his memorable moments include his daughter’s wedding two years ago. There is nothing that Bob likes more than being alone in the kitchen on Sunday and making a roast for the family (well maybe cheering at Old Trafford when Man United are winning!)

Gary O’Hare

Director

Email: gary.ohare@streetsahead.info

Gary’s most memorable moment is Streets Ahead winning a best estate agent award for the first time and is thrilled to bits that Streets Ahead have gone on to win 30 national awards since. Gary has vast experience having worked in the property sector for over 30 years, 26 of them at Streets Ahead. His interests are diverse, from gym/boxing and buying/selling fine art.

Email: patrick.donnelly@streetsahead.info

Patrick has been an estate agent in Croydon and the surrounding area for over 30 years and what Patrick doesn’t know about property isn’t worth knowing. Patrick is a fountain of knowledge to all the Streets Ahead family as his experience cannot be replaced. Patrick is a devout family man and loves taking the family on international holidays. Patrick knows a thing or two about football and what he doesn’t know about horse racing probably isn’t worth knowing about. Patrick counts his daughter’s graduation among his best memories.

Local Information

Restaurants:

restaurants_addiscombe
For a little nook in a big borough, Addiscombe has some great places to eat.

The iconic tram line inspires the name of The Tram Stop café which is just across the road from the Addiscombe stop. It offers breakfast, brunch and lunch, cake and coffee.

Café Adagio is a suburban music café, with its name intended to inspire a slow and leisurely tempo. Tastewise, the offering is breakfast/brunch and lunch – bagels, pastries, soup, salads.

Addiscombe is well-served by Indian restaurants such as Zafran and Vujon whose offer includes a 12-dish Sunday buffet, as well as The Banana Leaf which has notched up a quarter of a century of service.

The Oval Tavern is something of a destination. Club sandwiches, mac and cheese, rarebit and real ales are served up with a raft of entertainment including live music, quizzes and even a children’s storytime session – the Oval has a great reputation as a family pub.

The Glamorgan plays host to gig and club classic nights and its reputation for great food is well deserved in seeking out the finest game meat from ostrich to crocodile, wild boar to red deer.
