It sadly no longer exists due to all the road engineering and the fly-over which has been built there. **
For quite a while in the first half of the 1900s it was run by my great-uncle, Richard William PARTRIDGE, who was my grandfather's older brother. He was the 2nd in a line of 5 people in direct descent and all of the same name:- the first was my great-grandfather, born in Westminster in 1821, served in the cavalry (15 1/2 years in India and then 6 months in the Crimea on the way home) and ended up as the Chief Park Inspector in Battersea Park. The 4th and 5th in line (father and son) live down in Kent. **
The 2nd Richard William Partridge who ran the pub started in the licensed trade when he as still living at home in Battersea: in the 1891 Census he is shown as a "Licensed Victuallers Assistant"; by the 1901 Census he is shown as a "Licensed Victuallers Manager, at the Trafalgar , 1 Sumner Road, Peckham". I am not sure when he moved to the "Bricklayers Arms", but he was certainly there when his 2nd wife, Kate (n�e MESSENGER) died in December 1911. He is also there in the 1920 and 1930 Post Office London Street Directory, but by 1942 the pub was being run by Comans Catering Co. Ltd. and they also appear in the 1947 Post Office Directory. He and his 3rd wife (Florence n�e  GALLON) moved out to Bromley in Kent where he ran the Bell Hotel (I think he owned it rather than just managed it, but I have not found definite proof.)  **
