Speaking of horses: What's the best cheese to hide a horse?

Returning the original thread, this is great news for NKR. Along with the well-lit and renovated hotel/hostel and the new flats/Tesco Express (yes, I know that's rubbish architecture), NKR is starting to look much more alive.

It would be great if some of the automobile-related businesses and the gas station could be replaced with commercial/residential/offices that actually have proper street frontage and encourage pedestrian traffic.

Went there last week with two friends with the intention of eating , unfortunately the three of us walked out after 5 minutes. The place felt tacky and unwelcoming. The person behind the bar was carrying a small child as he served drinks , I thought it was a restaurant but all it was , was a pub with a few sofas . The few people drinking in there made it feel like I was in the weatherspoon pub at the Elephant. The menus were plastic coated A4.
The food may be okay but the place/atmosphere didnt make us want to eat there.

Agree with glodge. I called in a couple of times, and they didn't seem to have got their act together at all.

Seems to have closed already.

Looks closed. The blinds have been down for weeks now and not even seen signs of opening on Fri/ Sat evenings. Pity but I suspect the transition from pub to restaurant wasn't clearly communicated or obvious.
Anyone heard anything about what's next?

(Not heard anything, just the most logical guess.)

The place was up for sale for 900,000 last year.

There has been a hotel upstairs for a while now. The name (London Full House) and the minimal signage sticky-taped to the doorbell and pub windows made me think it was a dodgy backpacker hostel. I finally got round to googling it, and it actually looks pretty nice.
