Apparently FM is transitioning from wood fuel to gas fuel. What are people’s thoughts on this change?

Oh so 2010s Bob. Too recent to be retro cool. I've long since moved to Turkish style pizza at Pide in Catford aka the next East Dulwich. You heard it from me first.

I had a Turkish massage in a wooden cabin once

Not sure if that helps the conversation TBH but mumbles wanted retro cool something or other.

As for FM, as I've never eaten there, I'm sure I won't notice the difference 🤔

Disappointing... so long as my pizza eats well I don't really care?

Also once it went viral it just wasn't the same. I still pay homage to the first Pret, although the staff there don't know anything about the savoury croissants that were one served only financial services.

Had the same problem trying to get Guinness recently in the Moor Park Hotel on Wood Vale

Recently? - it hasn't been a pub for at least the last 10 years, if not longer

Or was that your point?

It probably won't taste the same, that is my guess. The expand to much, ruin the product and original core idea. It's a big chain now. I would say they're saving money, gas prices aren't exactly low though! Maybe it's easier to manage or something.

Luckily, we're not short of other pizza options if the quality is diminished!

Yes, that is in deed the pub, but they were not welcoming and threatened to call the old bill. I had a similar experience at the local garage and post office. The cemetery was more wco.ing but not sure I need the services yet.

Sounds like a good thing from an air quality POV
