On Some Saturday nights when the music was really alive, you could feel the floorboards move under your feet.....lock in`s were great and then around the corner to the Greeks for more drink at 3am and I swear when the lads played more music there and went around with the hat the money was flowing and sometimes they jumped in a taxi at 5am down to the meat market in London (Smithfield or Spittlefields) were there was a pub who had an early 4am license to serve alcohol....they would not be seen for 3 days.

The best Athlone pub outside of Athlone! Full of Athlonians and acolytes on weekends in the good old days of the late 80s/early 90s when I used to go there regularly.

YOu can see the exterior and interior of the Stags as it was 20 years ago on "Completely Pogued", a bonus documentary on the DVD of the Pogues live at the Town and Country Club in '88 (it was broadcast on Channel 4 a couple of times in the 90s.)

The best Athlone pub outside of Athlone in the 80s and early 90s. The saddest pub closure of my lifetime - not having been to Camden for several years I was totally shocked on revisiting a couple of years ago to discover that the Stag's had joined the late great pubs in the sky. RIP.

I loved this place, my second home for 4 years when I lived in london. Bert was a one off, a real gent and his staff/family were the salt of the earth.
We will see less and less of this sort of pub and that is a tragedy.

this was my favourite in the world ever.
maybe it was Bert and family (Landlord)
maybe it was the hearth fire
maybe it was the great music
maybe it was all the regulars
maybe it was the lock-ins
maybe it was the pool table.(I know there was no place but that part of the craic)
maybe it was the back yard
maybe it was the quiet weekdays.
maybe it was the saturday afternoons which drifted into evenings and late nights.
maybe it was all the wonderful diverse people who were likely to meet. or maybe it was Noreen. but whatever it was it is sadly missed. It's likes will never be seen in London A part of me died the day they closed the old place down.
