    I was on Highgate road itself. Bus stop other side of road from the south was in front of my house.

    Yep. Loved the area at the time.

    The South as it was then known was a bit ropey and run by two people called Den and Angie!

    Dirty Den? :lol:
    Probably walked down the back of your old place many times if you backed on to that passageway that goes down to KT

    I went to Poly in KT back in the 80s. Took a trip back there a few years ago.
    Tapping the Admiral - canny
    Grafton - canny
    Pineapple - canny
    Abbey - meh
    Vine - over priced
    Southampton Arms - full of Tory wannabes. It was a shithole when I used to drink there and much better.
    Bull and Gate - too clean

    The first few pubs had some of the excellent Southwark Brewing Company beers. Brewed In London, by Mackems.

    Didn’t bother with the Assembly Rooms, Junction and whatever the Vultures Perch is called now. I’d already had a few before I reached KT and then had a few at the town and country club. I almost made it to Totteridge and Whetstone tube station before puking. First time I’d ever puked on a tube in 30 odd years.

    Den was Irish and Angie a little blonde. They weren't a couple. Just ran the place together.

    For Camden there was also the Monarch on Chalk Farm Road, just down from the Round House - used to house the Barfly - is that still there? My band played there a few times and there was a decent club after hours on a Friday. That was 90s mind. And the Landsdowne, up and over the bridge from Chalk Farm tube - always liked that. Probably classed as Camden but I think of it more as Chalk Farm or Primrose Hill.

    When in the south?

    Is the radgie Irish pub out the back of gospel oak still there?

    Rarely strayed over that far other than to get the overland - the Boston up at Tufnell Park was pretty radgie and Irish though - used to go in there before going to indie night at the Dome back in the early 90s. Got a little tasty from time to time.

    Lived down that way when I first moved down in '90 - was classed loosely as St John's Wood but was a 5-minute walk to Kilburn Park tube - the High Road was a bit of an eye opener for a young lad from the NE back then :lol:
