Latimer Arms

Picture source: Mac Booker


 

The Latimer Arms was situated at 198 Latimer Road. The pub’s address was originally 1 Walmer Road, however the northern end of Walmer Road was actually lost in the late 1960s when the A40 Westway was built but the pub survived and the building is still there today. It would seem that it remained open as a pub until the early 1990s. There are various unsubstantiated stories about the pub. It is reputed to have featured as ‘The Skinners Arms’ in ‘Steptoe & Son’ and also used in episodes of ‘Minder’. It’s also said that around the start of the last century when QPR played their football at Latimer Road, the players used the pub to get changed before walking down Latimer Road to the football pitch. The building now appears to have been converted into residential flats.
In the episode of BBC tv's 'Steptoe and Son' entitled 'Loathe Story' (Series 7, episode 5 original BBC 1 transmission Monday 20th March 1972), the Latimer Arms is featured as the Skinners Arms:
