    Seamus from The Windmill had the Bedford Park up until late last year. Went in it a few times but it was very tired looking.

    He had music upstairs but I never went up there for the music so no idea how successful it was.

    Jack Stamps I used to use now and again if in Streatham as it was fairly lively and I used to get a Thai meal whilst there.

    Mixed crowd but a regular crowd amongst the older generation due to cheap beer

    Jack Stamps had been a pub for only about fifteen years. Prior to that it had been an Italian restaurants under a number of various guises owned by Grand Met and then by a management buy out. Friend who were brought up in Streatham in the early 80s still wax nostalgic about its previous incarnation as "Pizzaland".

    Anyone remember when it was "Pastificio" some twenty years ago? God, that was a dire place to eat.

    went for a pint in the bedford park a few years ago (maybe 5 or 6?). the beer was unpleasant, and the clientelle glared as you entered.

    i failed to return.

    No, the Duelling Elvi of Streatham were further north at Il Caretto (now the Five Bells pub) and La Pergola

    ah, that's right. I went into one of the Elvi Italian restaurants over 20 years ago but can't remember which one. I remember being in a basement though (I think)

    Was Bedford Park the one near Streatham train station on the other side of the road?

    Went there a few times in the early 90s when I lived round there. Was alright, can't remember much about it tbh.

    I saw Arsenal clinch the league against Man U at Jack Stamps.

    Its also the only place in London I have ever been offered out for a fight without any provocation at all.
