sokolov 28/2/2004 - previously rated: 2 pints. New review to come. This isn't so much a pub as a shrine to Celtic Football Club that sells beer and (pretty good) Guinness. Given the South London council estate locale it has a reasonably diverse clientele, but when even the carpets have the shamrock logo on them (good way to stop punters spilling things, we suppose) there's no escaping the football club. With walls full of pictures of Celtic heroes (and Michael Collins), graffiti in the Gents reading IRA, INLA and IRSP and songs making the highly-questionable assertion that "most of football's greats have passed through Parkhead's gates" the whole thing is so extravagantly over the top that we struggled to maintain a straight face.

No sign of life here.
