The Lambeth Walk

The Lambeth Walk, 17 Lambeth Road, Waterloo, Borough of Lambeth, London SE1, 2010 • Last call for a net-curtained council estate boozer that was opened by Pearly folk in 1951 (Pathe footage here), and closed for redevelopment in 2010. It was pretty grim by the end, with terrible reviews such as “this is a really horrible, rancid little place. When the least-worst option is keg Whitbread Best (and I didn’t know they were still making that), then a couple of quick gulps and a dash for the door is probably the only advisable course of action…”
