'...>The only supermarket then was a tiny Waitrose...So small that you were constantly crashing into other peole's trollies.<...'

...and so small they didn't even stock light bulbs or tissues.  Yes. I remember that too, David.  We moved to Chiswick in 1980, and my most positive memory of that origianl Waitrose is that its manager, who was a friend of our next-door neighbour, gave us an adorable little ginger kitten, whom we named Nigel and who remained with us until his death at 16.

Does anyone remember the excitement at the opening of Sainsburys in May 1986?  Chiswick felt like a proper suburb at last, with a proper large supermarket(though if memory serves it was only about half its present size).  I can't remember half the places listed above, but I do remember we had a least two butchers on CHR and I well remember the old Heidleberg patisserie.  And from Adrian's useful list above, I think the Chiswick Grill was the only remotely 'smart' restaurant we had until the 90s.
