    I have just discovered that the newly opened Job Centre in Deptford has Old Rosie on tap. This pleases me greatly.
    Still dubious about the theme though.

    Any news on Birds Nest? Is it going to be OK?

    Just read this thread and brought back happy memories of the ten years I spent in new cross and deptford. Time for a pub crawl, I think.

    Hello

    I've just put up a post on Deserter about messing around in Deptford, should anyone be interested. http://deserter.co.uk/2014/08/is-deptford-in-a-good-place/ - it also has a Spotify playlist of Deptford sounds, past and present.


    I hope the Bird's Nest rumour proves untrue. Stopped by the Old Loyal Britons just over the creek last night and that is facing the threat of demolition. Nice pub, really well kept ales, usually from Hop Stuff, friendly regulars and knowledgable landlord.

    Though I'd like to know why Sultans Of Swing is a Deptford tune. I thought it was well Balearic!

    And I didn't know Little Nan's had closed. I am glad of this. I hated it and everything it standed for.

    In my day, people tried to pass bits of Deptford off as either Greenwich or Blackheath...

    As for the pub and Dire Straits, not sure anyone is sure. There's a discussion on Transpontine about it here and a few candidates are suggested.

    I was always told it was the White Swan (at the bottom of Blackheath Hill). I was there once (about 20 years ago) and a load of Danish Dire Straits fans turned up on a pilgrimage :D

    should have mentioned this sooner

    this weekend (20/21 September) is London 'Open House' weekend.

    One of the places that's open is the master shipwright's house at the end of watergate street - normally hidden behind a high wall and only visible from the river.
