    I loved hanging out in the Marquis! Have you made it up to the piggy pub yet? It's properly decent and the food is fairly priced as well :)

    Oh yeah, the Hero, haven't been in there since I was about 21. I'd forgotten all about it tbh. We were out for a walk today and little hatter was asleep in the pushchair and I actually stopped Ms Hatter from walking us up Knights Hill cos I thought there wasn't any pubs up there any more since the Rose & crown got turned into a Tesco. :oops: :mad:

    It's worth the hike. And you'll be in boohoo and Miss-Shelf 's neck of the woods too.

    There's a great pub by the harbour over here with loads of old stuff in it like model ships, maps, stuffed animals and shark jaws. We try to take our visitors there cos there's so much to look at :cool:

    I have been informed by Heineken that the White Hart is not up for sale. Whoever spread such rumours should be held in public stocks and beaten with the cane for the foreseeable future.

    Perhaps this can be carried out where they had the delightful Christmas tree in December.

    'Selling to the highest bidder' is a turn of phrase.

    'The white hart is up for sale' is a statement.

    This is probably the most absurd post I've ever read on Urban. Love it.

    Well we've still got the Thames Water circus on Leigham Vale. The 6 weeks timescale they quoted in December to replace the water mains is now "end of August"

    The Railway is having a strange shift in policy: DJs now have to play 'quietly' until 11 or 12pm on Fri/Sat nights, with the tables left on the dancefloor all night, so it feels more like you're DJing a nice polite supper club or something.

    wow really? I can't see that going down well! I hope this doesn't herald problems with the noise related to garden drinking on those nights because the weather is just getting better and that's where everyone is going to be...

    I've no idea what's going on, but there won't be any Offline nights there for a while now.

    My downstairs neighbours are still in alternative accommodation. And there is plenty work left to do in their flats.

    Yeah, a friend of mine is working down there and has insider info.

    to me, that means they are sanitising, almost scrapping, the only good thing about the Railway.

    Mmm... I would certainly say that they should either do DJ nights/ live music properly or not do them at all, but IMO there is far more to The Railway than the occasional DJ events they host. Even though dropping such events would be a loss, the place has never struck me as being *chiefly* a live music/ DJ venue, or optimised to be so in the first place.

    It'd still be a perfectly good boozer without such events, and it ticks many other boxes for me from a relaxed atmosphere to boasting a fine garden space to serving one of the best Sunday roasts I've encountered in London.

    The DJ nights are continuing, but it was weird being asked to 'keep it down' for so long, especially as people kept asking me to turn it up because they wanted to dance. I like the place - and its staff - but it is bloody pricey.

    Its insanely pricey for what it is, the beer is not that great and the service has always been shite. Good space/venue for something like Offline though.

    What happens after midnight though? Can you turn it up/move the tables or what?

    Also just noticed that when you go to their website there is a new holding page My Site

    Noise issues, perhaps? I know someone who lives near the place and complaints from the locals are not unheard of. Ironically, many of such complaints seem to arise from daytime events in the garden rather than night time music inside. But maybe the Council has given them a ticking off.
