Appears to be shut. Any idea what's happening?

I had heard two vastly differing rumours recently while it was still open: that it had been bought by two Portuguese sisters for cash (!) and was to become a tapas place; and that it had been bought by developers and was being turned into flats.

The former would be great; the latter, not so much. It's such a fine building I would hate for it to be destroyed.

Does anyone know if plans have been submitted?

Apparently it's open again - does anyone have more information?
