Has anyone got any info about the Crown & Anchor on NKR? It's on the boundary of SE1. CHanged from an Irish pub to a (short-lived) Korean bar & food at the time of the Olympics and seems to now have closed. Am concerned that it's not for sale and there's no sign of it reopening as a pub. Would be a pity to lose another local pub...

Funny you should ask. After closing almost a year ago, and total silence on their Facebook page, the Korean bar just added a notice last week (in Korean) saying they will reopen in December 2013 after a refurb.

The last incarnation seemed very half-hearted, and felt like a pop-up riding on the coat-tails of Gangnam Style, so interesting to see it is coming back.

Has anyone picked up any news about this yet? No sign of activity yet although the London Open House is active as as a budget hotel above the pub. Worried that the ground floor might be merged into the hotel operation and not open as the pub as previous...

And the ground floor area seems to be being completely refurbished / rebuilt - the door was open yesterday and it looks like some extensive work... Has anyone picked up any recent news?
