    It was in the eighties. It also opened early morning doing breakfasts for builders.

    I've been a few times while waiting to meet someone. Definitely qualifies, as if the name wasn't a giveaway. Some old coot spontaneously started playing his fiddle and some of the regulars got up and started dancing last time I was there.

    The Park (west Norwood) is also nominally Irish, I think. It (coincidentally?) has an inordinate number of wakes.

    :D happy!
    i have a strong memory of going into the pub that is now the Florence in Herne Hill (which sadly i cant remember the name now) - that was an irish pub - it was a tuesday IIRC and it was karaoke night - cue old boys singing sad songs, one with real tears running down.... the mood of sadness is one ill never forget

    I was in the Florence a long time ago with my Irish pal who was with a Jamaican. Irish bar staff, a few punters. But it's not like that anymore.

    again, have passed rather than been in to - the mayfair tavern, tooting

    part of the old mayfair cinema building - most of the rest of the building is an islamic centre / mosque which seems an unusual but :) combination

    In the 80s and 90s used to have a snooker hall attached at the back. Fine old school boozer.
    Not to be confused with Zans next door which was pure snooker club and gambling den (frequented by Jimmy White).
     
  17. The Swan in Stockwell. Gets rowdy at night, questionable Polish security and smells of Guiness farts. What more could you want!?

    Also Hardy's Freehouse on Trafalgar Road, Greenwich.

    Not sure the Antigallican is very Irish any more.

    As for the Jolly Farmers in Lewisham, they show the GAA, which is usually a fair indication.

    This thread could be very useful when looking for somewhere to watch the massive Wales- Ireland game on Monday.

    Just had a look. The site was a fireworks factory before the pub! The pub has pictures on the wall alluding to the gun powder plot.
