My sister and I were brought up in this London pub from 1949 until 1962.My father became the youngest Courage tenant at the age of 29!
I have a lot of wonderful memories of those years. My father was Kenneth George Byne and my mother Phillis Olive (Ken & Phil).
His father had the Holydale Tavern and helped train him for him to be able to take on his own pub. ***
