Battersea North west pub history index

The pub was demolished in the early 1970s to widen the road junction and a new pub built at 44-46 Falcon road, at the corner of Coppock Close. The second picture shows the new pub in October 2014. It lost its licence the following year having been caught selling alcohol after hours and was demolished in 2016. A block of flats has now been built on the site.  *
