Fond memories. Not been down that way for years. It used to be a popular house, with BBC House just up the road, a lot of the radio people used to use it.
Having said that, they may still do. I do remember the stairs down to the toilets, they were not for the faint-hearted after a few OBB's  :o
The dinners were pretty good then too. Lots of pictures of celebs on the walls.

Great photos Ian. Did you take any of the interior or was it too busy.

Too early, photos taken at 10-45am, The first few pubs are just of the outsides.   Maybe another visit is called for in the future.   All in the name of research you understand. :()

Of course that is my excuse some of the time, with going to so many SS pubs around the country. Were the same managers in the London pubs, as they seem to change regularly in the north at the moment.

Only spoke to one manager while in London. Did not get to ask them how long they had worked for the brewery, but I think they had been there for a few years..........

Most of the barstaff where from the island that we use to send our prisoners.

Fair enough as the managers in London are always pretty busy and you don't get much chance for a chat. Yes in London there seems to be a large number of foreign bar staff. Suppose it's because they want to see London or are students.
