Historical version 54 of Anatolia, 175 London Road
Small Turkish cafe on London Road. It just does coffee, no food, and as of October 2017 it has a sign indicating that it operates as a members-only club.
As of June 2018 we haven't seen it open for quite some time.
According to a member of staff in October 2016, it had been open about a year at that point (though it still had no name on the frontage).

In late 2012, Cut & Stitch/Saira's Boutique photo, a clothes shop and tailors which had previously been housed at the back of Al-Waqt Electrical a couple of doors down, moved into the space, but this closed some time between May 2014 and March 2015.

In early 2015, both this unit and the one next door opened as a branch of Cash And Carry Beds, 1 Derby Road photo. At some point though, Cash And Carry Beds reduced its operations to just the next-door unit, and it was gone completely by mid-2016 (though the Derby Road branch remained open).
