Does anyone remember the Heber Arms? It was a traditional little boozer next to Heber School. Used it a few times in the 70s.

someone told me recently that they went there following a recommendation in a real ale type book. they found it to be somewhat 'local' and left fairly sharpish.

The ideal-homes website has disappeared - but I've got the photo and I'm going to put it on flickr - with or without permission.
My ancesters (the Roberts family) lived at 2 Heber Road from 1900 to 1912. They must have gone to the school and (later) the pub as well.

I used to go there, great boozer, pintable, v.good juke box and a good atmos.
A little less 'of the people' than the Castle but not gentrified either.
I miss it.

I went to look at a flat there when we first moved into the area a few years back. It was one of the flats at the front and in the bedroom was the cellar door in the floor, leading down to where the beer was kept. The cellar door was in the wardrobe. It freaked me out a little. All old places especially pubs have their ghosts. I didn't fancy laying awake of a night hearing things moving about in the cellar! And it had alot of the old pub furniture still down there with God knows what else lurking in the cornor. Interesting. It was a bit of a turn off that the girl showing the property refused to take us down to the cellar. She insisted on waiting upstairs....

i remember going there once in the mid 90s but it wasn't particularly memorable.

i quite like walking past every now and then and saying i was in there when it used to be a pub, bit like i feel when i walk past the Palmerston

That's a coincidence Brendan, so did my mate Mick Mansfield's dad.
It's a small world. But I wouldn't want to paint it as Steven Wright once remarked.

Hi
I have just found this site and it was great to find the photo of The Heber Arms the pub that i had for eight years. I am sure there are many locals that can remember many a good night they had spent in The Heber Arms From 1981-1989. Are you still out there?

Posted by jimbo1964 16 June, 2008 13:43

I used to go to the Heber from time to time in the eighties. I liked it a lot.. good beer garden too. And I had one of those Ford Escorts (my first car when I was nineteen).

Hello

Not sure if I'm allowed to revive old posts?... first post on this forum :o)

I've been off work sick for a few days and have been reading lots of posts on here and, feeling a bit better today, went for a walk to find The Heber Arms. I've attached a picture of it as it stands today.

I'm getting quite obsessive about places that used to be pubs around SE22, since almost everywhere I look around the backstreets there seems to be good candidates for old pubs or shops.

Andy

Thanks Andy. Nice first post. Welcome aboard. I remember the pub as I had a flat around the corner from it back in the day. They had strippers in there for a while too. Couldn't see that happening in any of the pubs in East Dulwich now though.

Mmm good work Andy. Many thanks - seems quite poignant in its current state.

And of course you are allowed to resurrect old threads - in fact, it is positively encouraged compared to starting a new one on subjects that have been covered in the past.

Keep up the good work.

David.

I sat outside the Heber arms many times as child in the 50's while mum and dad got p---ed on a Satuday night. They would buy me a lemonade and a bag of Smith Crisps and I would listen to the piano being played. Good old Days

Trust Lush to remember the strippers. I think it was every Sunday.

Oi! Oldie. How very dare you. Sunday was it?
