Old York Road Street Party 2010 Stage
They closed off the road so we had traffic-free access to the event. We strolled up and down and chatted to a number of the stall holders including:
- Mr Sambrook himself from Sambrook's Brewery - a local micro-brewery and producer of fine ales.
- Justin from Steam Bar Wine Bar and Restaurant - one of the best restaurants in the area
- A man from The Alma - our local Gastropub who have now built a boutique hotel out the back
- A lady from Doukan - an excellent local Moroccan restaurant where we have dined many times
Old York Road Street Party 2010 Crowd
Have enjoyed the sample of Sambrook's ale we went into the Alma and bought a couple of pints and a snack from Doukan. Then our friend Ian arrived and we had to have a couple more pints!
