The Islanders

The Islanders was situated at 3-5 Tooke Street. This pub was present by 1858.  Its main claim to fame is that in 1885 it provided the HQ and changing rooms to Millwall Football Club in the early days before they decamped south of the River.  At this time it was more generally known as “Sextons” after then landlord Maurice John Sexton – the nickname continuing well after he had gone and into the 1920s.  The pub was hit and destroyed in an air-raid in early hours of 7 September 1940 and it was not rebuilt
