When the doorman got shot I think they just gave it a new name. It was owned (tenant) by Sonny from Samsons but they changed the name to Willows (after willow walk)
I think they took the pub because it was in a quietish area and could get a late licence.
Was there a pub called the Tanners Arms down Willow Walk?
According to a few sites i have googled they say it was demolished in 2004?
It seems it was close to the site of the Fellmongers.
I remember the Alscot and the Fellmongers but have no recollection of this Pub?
