In London, England, there are pubs and streets named 'Mawbey'.
The pub below is at 7 Mawbey Street, Stockwell, London.
It's located between Stockwell and Vauxhall, in the vicinity of the Tate Art Gallery and Westminster Cathedral.
A comment on its website says it's in the middle of an 'estate', presumably a public housing one, and is an 'unreconstructed, old time boozer ... a True Blue Chelsea pub'.
Other comments by neighbours are not so complimentary.
