I think that last week just after they got the blighters out the side door ended up open again. Perhaps they are trying to prevent them getting back in, the police were there again thursday. would like to see what damage they caused inside, hope the owner was insured..and that flipping graffiti...I hate graffiti, apart from Banksy...

I think the security are there full time.

I've got a bit of a fascination with derelict/disused buildings. I was walking past and saw the door ajar and went in. There was a half-finished game of pool on the pool table and graffiti sprayed over the bar. That said, it wasn't as bad as what I thought apart from the graffiti. Wonder what's next for the Beehive?

Also, it seems a premises licence was granted after the place closed - one was granted on 6 May 2014! Is someone reopening it? I hope so.

Years ago Gavin it was a fantastic pub, it catered for all young and old alike, then someone along the line divided the bar into sorry thats wrong took the partition out, then shortly before it closed put it back. the carpet was removed years ago which gave it a hollow sound , the pub tables were all removed and a variety of sofas replaced them. In actual fact there used to be two ladies rooms, one in the public as well as in saloon.because it was becoming a run down dump, normal punters stopped going in and then you had some dodgy ones in! Many many moons ago i think you had a 'snug' between the two bars that kids could go in and but lemonade and crisps etc. I wonder if that graffiti can be removed as it really is horrible. Hope it opens up as a restaurant or trendy coffee place with nice cakes...or a theatre as a neighbour suggested...

I was looking to see if I could find out what might be happening to the Beehive and read that there is an initiative in Southwark that allows local residents to register the pub as a local asset. Then if the pub comes on the market the residents have the right to purchase it at market rate and run it as a community asset. This would stop developers turing another corner plot into a block of flats, but would we have enough local interest to run it? As Jan says it could become a desirable venue in the right hands.

I saw some activity last week at the Beehive. The shutters were off the window, it was cleaned up and lights were on in the bar. Looked very nice. Although I don't drink, it would be nice to see it reopen. Does anyone know what's going on?

Nice to see a restrictive covenant requiring use as a public house. Too many pubs lost to flat conversions...
