As a former Londoner it brings back treasured memories of life in the East-End…I realise I know more of the pubs mentioned here than I care to say !! The Roebuck in Lewisham was a « dive bar » completely underground, and Indeed behind the Odeon whare Victor Sylvesters Dance Hall was situated. During the dance-hall interval we(the boys) would nip ‘round to the pub to whip-up some Dutch-courage in order to ask the latest dance Partner if, after the last dance, we could take her home.. Of course, the pub being very warm and cosy, we often didn’t get back to the dance-hall. Really wonderful times
