Murder Mile Walks - THE COCKY BARMAN OF THE WHITE HORSE
"...one of the best quirky, curious & unusual things to do in London"
The White Horse, (Rupert Street): In the early sixties, the barman of the White Horse public house was a 37 year old Irishman called Paddy O’Keefe, Paddy loved to boast that he was a “crook tamer”, and could pacify any aggressive customers just by “staring them in the eye, like a circus-trainer would, to dominate a lion”.
Unfortunately, on the night of 14th June 1964, the White Horse was robbed by 21 year old Larry Winters, who a psychiatrist would later describe in court as “an abnormal man with violent psychotic tenancies”. As Larry Winters rifled the till, seizing £47 pounds, Paddy O’Keefe confronted him, his palms flat on the bar, his back straight and fixed the robber with one of his trademark stares.
