My memory is not as good as I thought it was, so could somebody tell me the exact location of this pub, please? We held a fancy dress party at our house in Cheam in early 1960's, where everybody had to come representing a pub. I wore a red shirt, white haversack, white cricket trousers, and my wife's black patent bucket bag on my head.
I was supposed to be the Surrey Yeoman! It's really great, thanks to Ralph M and others, to see the pictures, which bring back happy memories.

The Surrey Yeoman pub was on the Reigate Road next to the Galleon which was on the corner of the A217 and the Reigate Road. Today, Yeoman Court has replaced the pub and is the apartment block on the Reigate Road next to the Shell Garage.

Many thanks, Ralph. Much appreciated. Incidentally, exiled as I am up here in Suffolk, I have a tangible reminder of my old patch. I'm the proud owner of a cast iron nameplate: [A217 TOOTING-HOOKWOOD ROAD. The newer, REIGATE AVENUE sign fixed above it circa 1929/30 was removed in 1939 because of invasion scares (to confuse the German convoys approaching London? After all not many locals could tell you where Hookwood is!). The sign was almost opposite my house on the Sutton Bypass, close to Rose Hill roundabout, next to the phone kiosk, air raid siren and Police Box. "My" sign was left in situ and remained there, even when the Reigate Ave sign was replaced later-on). Over the years its wooden backing rotted away until it collapsed into the stinging nettles. I removed it in the 1960's, having got a wink and a nod from a nearby speed cop who was sympathetic to my nostalgia!

Thank you for another informative site. Where else could I get that kind of info written in such a perfect way' I have a project that I'm just now working on, and I have been on the look out for such info.

It's great to get an acknowledgement like this- and that there are folks interested enough to "keep the pot boiling" on titbits of local history. Thank you, Michael.

My grandfather Oscar Collier owned this pub also around 1920's. His son Richard took it over after him but not sure when they sold it but probably just before they emigrated to Australia somewhere around 1970.

My mum & dad ran the pub in the mid 70's, Ron & Peg. We were there for around 4 years. I went to De Burgh school, happy days! It was a fantastic pub and we had some great times there.

I remember Ron and Peg. Was my local for many years. Last landlord I remember was Julian in the 80's. My brother's band played there often.
