    I boxed there for Orpington. Used to box a kid from Eltham called Gerry Taylor back then. 
    ‘I think the Downham Tavern was known as the biggest pub in Europe at one time. Might be wrong.

    Yeah, he got into a row with some Millwall down the Old Kent Road. Went down swinging though, but sadly not connecting. Just like his boxing career, by all accounts.

    After that the CL character “nolly” was no more. The man behind the name reinvented himself under another name I believe though, but was never the same.

    RIP “nolly”

    Biggest pub, but I thought the Falcon by Clapham Junction station had the longest bar....though I maybe wrong, for what it's worth I believe Tottenham's new ground will have the longest bar, when it opens.
  • I remember reading that it had the longest bar in Downham
  • Rockabilly night on a Sunday, great times...
