I noticed that the hop cellars closed last night.Glad to see it went out with a bang on Burns night.I wonder was it the current climate or redevelopment issues that forced its closure.

I'd have thought it was the redevelopment.

I believe it's to do with Thameslink, same reason as The Wheathseaf closing.

From the previous thread about the compulsory purchase order for part of the Hop Exchange that Network Rail were seeking, I had got the impression that the tenants of the building could remain in occupation apart from some disruption while the new fire escapes were being built???

nigel - I presume you mean under a new guise, since the ball bros website is pretty final about the permanency of its demise as ball bros concern. Any more detail on what's planned? just a change of management?
