Oddly the SA Rugby team have had to remove the Springbok from their jerseys too.
Mandela would be turning in his grave over this.

It's still a dump inside by the looks of it with the same 20 year old furniture, none of which seems to match.

On the other hand, I never took to this boozer.

Back in 1999/2000 season Dave Thomas published my 'Plain man's guide to Shepherd's Bush pubs' Carefully researched pen pictures of 18 establishments near HQ. He received more complaints - prolonged and with threats of violence - in the whole history of AKUTR'S for my review of The Springbok and it was only two words long and 100% factual.

"It smells."

It smells doesn't do it justice.


When you're at White City tube you can smell the Boks bogs.

I remember those articles 18stone. Bloody good they were too, seven if you did miss out my old haunt The Mailcoach (RIP).

You should do a follow up. Although it'll be a lot shorter and probably more expensive. When you get to The Pav let me know and I'll buy you a half.

There should be a permanent thread about old pubs on here too. Usurp that funky Frankie Friday cobblers. 😘

Don't know what wrong with the name Springbok, the pub however..... Went it there with my kids (they're old enough to drink) a couple of times, last time in the bogs and the pool table some peeps were pushing some White power up their faces. Shame really.

Poll: Where will we finish next Year. Starting early.

I used to take/drag my kids there before a match when you could drink outside. Once that all changed they just flat refused.

Fizzy pop on the concourse it is then....

Must have walked by thousands of times without ever thinking of entering. I don't think they've ever sold Real Ale since the pub was built. Anyone know when that would be ? I'm guessing late 50s.

The good ol' Pav has been a Greene King pub for some years now. Ponced up interior lacking the appeal of the old public/saloon/big end bar. It's shabby in that area now. The North Pole, the Volunteer, the Cowshed - all sadly gone. The shops all crap or empty.

When wasn't it shabby in that area? In fact it's a lot less shabby than it used to be, like many areas of inner London. When you see photos of N. Kensington from the 50s, 60s and 70s it's striking how run down the houses look.

Poll: Come on then, let's have it.
