37 Dawson Street



Excellent food, amazing service (so much so I still can’t believe it) and real interaction with the customers. Atmosphere changes from day to night so depending on what you’re looking for it could sway your decision to go here. What do I mean? Day into evening – great place to chill out. Night time – packed solid thurs to sunday.


Popped in here to see what it was like and Wow! The decor is brilliant – zany, classical and very different – all is a positive way! There’s an intimate piano bar away from the maddening crowds; the bar is like walking in to your living room with beer on tap, the service is excellent.


This is a new bar on Dawson Street that has really gone far in developing its character. It is full of antiques and crazy things, with plenty of animal heads on the walls. I went with friends for drinks and thought it was a cool little place with very friendly staff. It seems to be doing well, too, because on a rainy Sunday it was pretty packed.

The name B P MITCHELL will be a common site to most highway commuters by the never ending stream of BPM branded lorries traveling up and down the major motorways of the home counties. It’s hard to imagine those heady early days when there was only a single lorry doing all the hard graft and earning a solid days work for its owner, Brendan Mitchell. The current fleet boasts over 60 lorries and the tally is rising, due to the growing needs of our clients and the need for land hungry development projects.

Brendan Mitchell is a family man and a ‘hands on’ professional who feels more comfortable in a pair of muddy Caterpillar boots behind the wheel of a truck rather than being cooped behind a desk in his office. This ‘down to earth’ ethos underpins his working day, making his company one of the UK’s leading contractors to the building and construction industry.

The foundational principles of ‘service quality’ and ‘absolute reliability’ still drive the business forward with energy and enthusiasm, a feature that is imbibed by all the dedicated BPM team. The company motto ‘Whatever - Whenever’, clearly demonstrates BPM’s commitment to its loyal clients to whom this website is dedicated.
