    So when did Pat take over at the Albert then?

    I had a Bajan bus conductor friend who was very thick with her - so I doubt she was racist in any way. Makes me think she came post 1981 riot.

    Must have been some time around 1981/2.

    Her husband ran the pub. I think he died. She took over. From what I remember she was there when I first started using Albert in early 80s when it was still just a few old men and a dog.

    I reckon Brixton's current wave of gentrifiers think of urban75 as "just a few old men and a dog".

    Pat was great. She used to let my friend Roland sleep by the fire when he couldn't make it home, which was quite often. He only lived on Rushcroft Road.

    If they do it shows what a bunch of cunts they are.

    Yes she was. She also didn't stand any nonsense in her pub. She didn't need security guards. The regulars would back her up. The only pub in central Brixton run by a woman. I had a lot of respect for her.

    They are to busy creaming themselves at the thought of a Block Porn pukka pad made of raw materials to spare a thought for me and my dog.

    I only went to the Albert once in the early 80s and got thrown out for playing Bridge.

    We weren't on first name terms but I have to assume it was Pat.

    Reiabuzz Well-Known Member

    Yep, me too. She was hard as nails but you knew where you stood. I got a dressing down now and then. The next Pat was arguably even cooler, he was a great landlord too. The alberts been a bit shit really since those days. Rarely venture in these days although of course that could just be me getting a bit older and less tolerant of dickheads.

    Agree that it's a bit shit in there now, although the pub still has its moments. Both Pats were very tough acts to follow.
