Elephant and Castle The Blue Rooms  

Blue Rooms in Walworth Road, few doors up from the original Baldwins Sarsparella shop, was run by Bill, a Cypriot. Very steep stairs opened out to a small dark basement, with the counter directly at the foot of the stairs. It was a well known hangout for Mods in the early 1960's. Always open late into the night and early mornings. Bill also ran the Rodney Cafe (not sure of the dates but around mid sixties). Earlier was a Rockers meeting place, where Ritchie Almond (spelling?), known as The Bear, would lean flat over the petrol tank as held the bars (clip ons?) he drove away!

Elephant and Castle THE BLUE ROOMS  

I used to go there in 1965. It has a great juke box and a pinball you could shake and never tilt! There were a lot of petty criminals there involved in all sorts of crimes. People would disappear and reappear with amazing regularity as they served out their time. There was some drug dealing there but only things like purple hearts. I believe it got raided by police and they closed it down. Probably for the best.

There's a Nag's Head in Peckham, about 300 yards or so from Peckham Rye station. Not sure if that is the one you were thinking of.

Elephant and Castle Henshaw Arms Elephant & Castle London  

Not sure if the Henshaw Arms is still there at the Elephant and Castle, however my great Aunt Maud Lersh was the wartime landlady who kept it open through the war WW2 for the locals and the firemen and medical staff during the heavy bombing of the area.
She was one of the few female licenced landladies of the time and is remembered fondly for her character and determination If anyone has more info let us know
