The place to which you refer was called 'Cinatras' in West Croydon.
One used to pay an admission fee which included all the drinks one could consume and there used to be temulent people in there, both male and female.

This disco was in Purley.
Some of the ladies were rather easy on the eye, but alas some looked as rough as a dingo's paw.

facing john leonard menswear / st.georges walk.

I remember many an enjoyable meal in the Tavern.

My now wife, then girlfriend, recall fish and chips, bread roll and ice cream for 10/6d.

Great place.

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.
