    I've been here for years but never frequented the Elm Park Tavern til Friday. I loved it - it's a proper pub - grimy and smokey - I thought they were a thing of the past in Brixton.

    it's a great place. my front door faced theirs for years, and I lived in Elm Park for about 6 years in total. Used to love the EPT but the continuing presence of a vile ex meant i couldn't go there.

    But she's buggered off and now i can again. We should go - it's kinda halfway house, innit? :D

    Aye, it's not a bad pub - we used to go there for pub quizzes.

    And here's the photo caption from my blog:
    It's pretty amazing that the pub is still going when you think of how many pubs have closed around Brixton. http://www.urban75.org/brixton/bars/lost-pubs.html

    (*Blimey, I've noticed that it's not included in the urban75 Brixton pub guide. I'll have to fix that later)

    Most of Brixton Hill is SW2...

    As opposed to people who lived for many years in the road in question, you mean?

    well it wouldn't be the first time the internet has been wrong.

    they don't count :( alas.

    anyway, whilst i jest, it's definitely closer to st. reatham than the brix.

    You're clearly mental then.
    If it's off BRIXTON Hill, it's in Brixton.
    If it's off STREATHAM Hill, it's in Streatham

    Nonsense - I live in Trinity Gardens and that's in SW9 - Morley's is in SW9 - are you saying that it's in Stockwell?
     
  27. editor

    editor Taffus Maximus

    I believe the case for SW9 being the real Brixton has been proven. We've got the tube, the railway, the market, the arcades, the main shops, Morleys, the Albert, the Phoenix and the police station and that's good enough for me.

    Now I've got to get back to work.

    I'd said there's sod all in it, really.. Elm Park is about halfway up Brixton Hill, if you assume Brixton Hill stops at the South Circular...

    What about all the people living off a LONDON ROAD then?

    Or those poor Streathimites and Tooting residents living on MITCHAM LANE?

    :p
