My family had The Angel in Lambeth Walk (SE11) from about 1973 to 1978. The Licensees, my parents, were Danny and Patricia Stupple. The watercolour was painted c.1975; possibly by the artist 'Richard Ballard' if memory is correct. It is highly likely that he painted other pubs in the area, and proper credit to the actual artist would be good. *

Peters and Lee (pop duo in the 1970's) appeared there several times whilst we were there. Immediately to the rear of the pub  was a flour storage silo that occasionally used to blow its top and coat the whole area in a dusting of white (if it happened now planes would be grounded, it was pretty dramatic!). *

Later, my parents were at  'The Royal Standard', in Hastings from 1978 to 1986. There was a serious flood weeks after this (1986) whilst still on the premises. They were a fantastic bunch of customers back then. *

We held a talent competition in the Angel and the eventual winners were Peters and Lee. The competition was held over a number of months and when the final was held, their song 'Welcome Home' was top of the charts in the same week as the final. You can imagine the crowds it attracted, the Lambeth Walk was brought to a standstill as it was blocked solid.
It was rumoured that Joe Stone who was the governor of the pub in 1938, shot himself in the cellar and it was haunted. But I was later told by someone who knew him, that he took a pub in Knightsbridge somewhere and it was there that he committed suicide.
I was also told by some of the older customers that Charlie Chaplin used to perform in the Angel at one time and also the jazz pianist George Shearing also played there.
I cannot verify the last two. ***
