    Always the busiest pub in the area, the loud music that created the atmosphere was its trademark. It was also a well known celebrity haunt, attracting some of the biggest names in entertainment as regulars.

    It was used regularly by both film and TV as a location. Most famously in Absolutely Fabulous.

    In 1992 a major fire in the top floor apartment resulted in a tragic fatality.

    For the 1980s and 90s there was a club on the first floor. Some of these included The Upstairs Club, El Cid and The Lost Weekend
