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!)

Local Information

Restaurants:

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.
