You can tell a lot about a neighbourhood from its pubs. In Crystal Palace, three of these drinking establishments greet visitors and residents at the main junction at the top of the hill. They each have their own personalities, and that’s down to the publicans.
In Episode 1 of Palace Stories, we find out what makes these publicans keep the drinks flowing and the punters happy.
These are your pubs. These are your publicans.
Visit our Facebook page for some fantastic photos of the pubs.
