The Apprentice's Bridge Cafe
This is where The Apprentice losers are sent to ponder.
Location: Westfields Road, Acton, London, W3 0AP
Description: The Bridge Cafe, with its prison-cell feel and shabby exterior, is where the ruthless candidates from BBC's tv series The Apprentice are regularly dispatched to when they have failed to win their tank.
Gerry and Frank Marcangelo have been offering workers in this neighbourhood traditional sustenance for almost five decades and have come to know their customers extremely well.
They are down-to-earth working men - and what the working man wanted to eat 50 years ago, they still eat today, argues 65-year-old Gerry. People are not interested in us changing.
We tried different things over the years, such as salads and healthy things, but we have always gone back to do what we do best.
Gerry gestures towards a posh coffee machine standing redundant in the corner.
They don't want it, he says. Tea is the brew of choice here.
