In the South London Press it mentioned that permission had granted to turn the George into flats ...what George Pub in Abbey Street? that was pulled down some time back.. is this what they call retrospective planning!!


another pub bit the dust in the quest for posh ' ousing!

it was on the right ( going from long lane end) and yes i believe is long gone-perhaps the council hasn't noticed. They have a policy now of keeping the outside facade of pubs so that could be interesting!

It was knocked down a couple of years ago. It used to be one of the landmarks I used for cabbies (turn right after the pub) and it wasn't until I ended up in Rotherhithe I realised....

what was it called before-did it not get named The George of Bermondsey after the original one was knocked down and the owner moved there?
