Is there any one who could settle a bet about when the Horsehoe in tower bridge road closed/was demolished?

Looked on various sites but could not find it...:-)

Can't help with your question Jan, but I used to use the Horseshoe years back, maybe late 60s, maybe early 70s.
One thing that I remember was the fact that there were house-bricks on the bar, with red tipped matches in the indentation on top.
Customers would light their cigarettes from these, striking the matches along the brick.
I never saw anyone pick one up to use as a weapon, maybe they were bolted, or glued to the bar.

Did a bit of digging Jan, and came up with a site,
I copied it, but for some reason I could not paste it.
It was listed as 115 Tower Bridge Road, also as 230 Grange Road, and 10 Grange Rd.

I found that page too but I think I got there throught the Bermonndsey Boy website. I think this link works.

Jan, why not post on the Bermondsey Boy forum?
