Yes I remember it from the mid-80s. My cousin lived round the corner in Marcia Road
, so we often popped in for a pint late afternoon, early evening.
There was a flat roof at the back for al fresco drinking. Originally it looked like a tatty south London boozer but at some point it got painted a rather vile bright blue and yellow.
I remember the landlord liked playing mein host, but one day he bragged about how much money he was making (the 80s boom even reached the Old Kent Road
) and the fact he was making large donations to Mrs Thatcher and the Tories. Rather took the taste off the beer.
