    Default Croydon confusion

    There is a bit of a cock up in Croydon and quite understandably! The place listed as Apatura Lounge has the review and pictures from Conchitas, a Mexican bar/restaurant which was formerly located opposite at 25-29 South End. This premise is now an Italian restaurant called Tre Fratelli. However - the business of Conchitas apparently moved across the road to 14 South End into what was once the Dukes Head/Fiddler & Firkin/Bodega, visibly a pub building rather than a shop. However - the Mexican connection seems to have disappeared completely and 14 South End is now Apatura (without the lounge), a Turkish "BBQ Bar and Restaurant". It does indeed retain the bar albeit with only fizz available so warrants a listing. I don't know if there is another old entry for 14 South End in one of its guises which could be restored; failing that the Conchitas pictures and review need removing (or appending to a closed entry for 25-29 South End). I have posted a new picture and the current website is https://www.apatura.org.uk/.
    On leaving the bar, I felt a strong blow to the back of my head. Turning round, I discovered it was the pavement

    Found it! It was down as Cactus Jack's . This is the building now the Apatura, so perhaps change the address of 64625 back to 25-29 South End and close it, and shift the links/new picture to 35536.

    Phew, I have reopened and renamed Cactus Jack's as Apatura and renamed and closed 64625 ( the old Apatura) to Conchitas, I have also corrected the address and post code and shifted the links for Apatura. The pictures should be in the right places as well.

    Tell us, now, how and when
    We may find the bravest men?
    A sure test, an easy test:
    Those that drink beer are the best
