    It's not my site but it's been annoying me. Apparently the owner can see the site fine but on my Windows desktop and Android phone I get this:

    If I open it in a HTML editor I can see the code for the actual page and it looks full of errors but what would it take to fix it?

    isn't that the error when your IP has been blocked? Think I've seen that a few times from places that block ban Chinese IPs. Maybe some legacy block the developer's missed?

    works ok here on firefox / windows 7 via BT internet.

    wonder if you've got some add-on that's objecting to it. site seems to involve javascript - have you got anything that might be blocking that?

    So it works on my phone via a data connection but not via wi-fi.

    I've no idea. I know others have reported the same thing.

    that makes some sort of issue between your ISP and theirs more likely. I have a vague memory that BT internet had a problem where it wouldn't talk to about half the internet a few years back

    Would that fit then? Presume accessing via mobile data is a different IP. No expert by any means mind.

    Must be a very dodgy site....I get the same error on the iPad in Brazil. The other site that does the same here is John Lewis when i’m at the office.

    Could try the website address on one of those "isitdown" type sites.

    If the DNS has recently been changed to point to the new host (which is Weebly btw) then the new record may be taking time to propagate. This would explain the apparently pretty random availability.

    Hm. Sometimes DNS issues get "stuck"... 403s are annoying though, they can come from lots of places. If it's server config or something in the application it would be consistent no matter the device or network though.

    I grew up just down the road from there btw and remember never going to it at all :D Even when I was old enough to drink (or to get into pubs anyway) it was considered too dodgy and also too out of the way for my friends. Nowadays I go nowhere near Tulse Hill anyway.

    Think I've actually drank in there a couple of times as when I was a stude in London I crashed at a mate's place just up the road for a few weeks at one point. Seemed innocuous enough.

    Did you set up this site for your friend and/or do admin work on it for him? The fact that it works for everyone bar you and will work for you when you switch from wifi to data connection (different IP) points the finger of suspicion at the server and the fact that it remembers you for some reason, 403 (for Apache at least) generally means directory permissions are to tight or the home page isn't named either index.html (or php) neither of these are clearly true. Take a look at the server and check you haven't blocked yourself to test something and have forgotten you did it.

    I have been to a couple of Urban drinks in there. Think it is that one.

    I’m sure it’s fine now - it was done up after I left home I remember - but in the 80s and early 90s it wasn’t considered a salubrious location in my social circle. Which may have been unfair.

    It says something about pubs at that time that we thought Wetherspoonses were upmarket. I mean, they were clean for a start.

    No I've got nothing to do with at all - it's just baffled me why I can't see the site when others can.

    (*Disclaimer: I do DJ there sometimes)

    The Railway picked up a fair few from the old Albert crowd. I quite like it. The garden is magnificent in the summer.
