Can anyone tell me whereabouts this pub was / is? Apologies for the poor quality photo, the pub was used in a 1995 film called ID. All I know is that it was / is in Rotherhithe but I'd love to know which street.

I've been reliably informed that this is (was) the Rising Sun in Frean Street/Old Jamaica Road - sadly, it was demolished.

If it's the pub I'm thinking of Debra's correct, it was in Old Jamaica Road next to Robertsons the bike shop. There's a block of flats and a health clinic on the site now.

A few of my mates were in that film, the mid 90's was a rubbish time for those of us in the building trade and we all seemed to be made redundant at the same time. There was an ad in the local job centre in Albion Street looking for extras. I was too late! It paid well from memory, they did the pub scene and then coached people over to Leyton Orient (I think) for filming over there.

Debra / Michael - thank you for that, it's something that I have wondered about for years!

I've been looking for a photo of the pub but sadly can't find anything.
