Which Lordship Lane coffee shop/ cafe is best for...


Recommended Posts

An interview in a public space like a cafe? I don't think that is fair for the would-be employee or the others there. Why not try to interview in an outdoor space - it could make for a good way of getting to know the person in a different way to the norm. Good luck - especially to the candidate....

Whether you can or can't is not the point. It's not a neutral place and why should other guests, who want a social chat or to read a book or just sit quietly, have to put up with someone who is straining to be perceived in the best possible light - interviews are stressful and unnatural so having the added threat of someone overhearing your earnest and over-embellished replies isn't fair on anyone. Do it in a park or somesuch - you could use it to get a better measure of someone.

Thanks to all those who replied!

Plough and Kanella good suggestions - but reading the latest Covid guidance, apparently you are allowed to meet with a non-bubble person in the outdoor seating area of a pub or restaurant ( but not inside).

So in the light of that could anyone add to the list of suggested places?

PS @Nigello just to re-assure you: I appreciate your concern for the interviewee but just to clarify this is NOT a job interview, it is an informal chat with someone who has agreed to contribute a few anecdotes for an article.

    • The Peckham Coal Line proposals (which frankly I had forgotten the details of, and never knew the council had made any contribution toward) were an interesting idea worth exploring at the time. A £10k contribution to a feasibility study that was mostly paid by private donations is pretty good value. Obviously those struck by #southwarkderangementsyndrome will say this thing the council did 8 years ago is literally the end of Western civilisation. https://www.peckhamcoalline.org/blog/feasibility-study-1-year-on
    • Hi, Im new to the area, just moved down from Hackney, and expecting in April.  Love to be added to the group if possible. Thanks!
    • Another to consider is if when you purchased them, the chicken was kept in a sealed plastic bag as that will definitely contribute to them going of. I always wrap meat lightly in greaseproof paper and store it at the bottom of the fridge.  Just an idea. Hope you are feeling better.
