This is a classic boozer for the local people, popular and lively with a children's party in one bar and a singer in the other when I visited on a Bank Holiday afternoon. Pool table. LSTV.
Now closed and demolished.

A nicely decorated rather plastic pub in the Q's chain, concentrating on food - burgers, wraps etc. and pool. The cask Tetley was mediocre when I visited. Beer garden. LSTV.
Now closed and replaced by new housing.

Red Lion Hotel

This very large brick and carved stonework construction contains a comfortable plain bar, with a pool table and plenty of tellies. The rest of the interior appeared closed when I was there. What does "RB" stand for, carved in the stonework?

Saltbox The very large knocked through lounge side has pleasant uncluttered decor. I didn't try the bar side, but it looks nice as well.

Stockwell Mount (Ma Kent's) An impressive exterior and a wonderful inside with a nice floor mosaic in the hall and fine wood panelling in some of the rooms. The main attraction, however, is the most amazing collection of antiques and bric-a-brac I have ever seen. You name it, they collect it - ship's propellers, film star busts, Darth Vader helmets, bus ticket machines, musical instruments, ancient tools, tram controllers (and a driver's jacket) - the list is never ending. Well worth a visit despite the plastic beer, and make sure you visit all the rooms. I believe the owners and their collection moved here from a pub on Scottie Road. LSTV in the back room.
Now a residential hotel.

Tut 'n' Shive (White House) A large knocked round pub with the usual Tut 'n' Shive decor, perhaps not as quirky as others in the chain were. Pool table.
Closed and now a KFC.
