Ukrainian Restaurants Near Philanthropic Road, Redhill


Is Google stupid?  I have already given up on Amazon and E-Bay continually trying to suggest items that I have no interest in.  Amazon is classic with its “You bought this soft-cover book once. Now you might like to buy the same book in hardcover. Oh look, there are two editions. Why don’t you buy both?”.

I was searching in Google Maps for Philanthropic Road, Redhill (the scene of my previous post), when (as it likes to do) it proposed the alternative search text “Ukrainian Restaurants near Philanthropic Road, Redhill”. Now I’m not interested in anything Ukrainian but I thought this was worth a gander.  It turns out there are no Ukrainian restaurants nearby. Not to be deterred, Google Maps proposed some other eating and sleeping places - some of which are quite far from Philanthropic Road.

It turns out that Philanthropic Road gets it’s name from the Philanthropic Society Farm which used to be here.

* OK, I lied. I do have some Ukrainian interests.  I thoroughly enjoyed A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian (don’t let the dusty title put you off - it’s hilarious).
