The Dun Cow further up the Old Kent Road and the Green Man have both gone.They were owned by the same gaffer either side of the road. On Thursdays and Sundays we would watch comedians like Jim Davidson Jimmy Jones the both pubs were packed the owner would have the speakers wired across the Old Kent Road so we could all listen.
I believe worlds end pub got its name , when they deported prisoners to down under , and one last places they stay before being deported , quite a few years ago the landlord would pay protection money to the villains , so they set it on fire, sure some died in the fire , myself used to train for boxing in the ring pub , Blackfriars rd , also drink in the flower of the forest Alan pub , what's now gone
