Any signs of life?

The guys at Anspach & Hobday said it was bought by a pub company (not sure which one), but they were in talks with the local breweries about supplying.

According to the Southwark licensing register, a fresh premises licence was granted on 28 January 2015 to the incumbent landlord, Enterprise Inns. Not sure whether that is just to enhance prospects of sale or whether that means they are intending to carry on trading. I'm sure we'll see.

I see that there's a building control notice been deposited for works at the pub - anyone know what's happening?

Looks like it's going to be reopened by the Bermondsey Pub Co (part of Enterprise Inns) along similar lines to the St James of Bermondsey.

Reopens early November. Pizzas will be a speciality.

Sounds great - where did you hear that?

I'd like to hope that its prices are reasonable so that those living in the council and ex-council homes right next to it are able to afford a drink there. I'm all for the breweries and markets under the arches but they aren't particularly inclusive given their prices.

It's being run as a business, so I'd expect them to run it however they see fit to make a profit. Currently with it being closed (presumably because it was not being run profitably), nobody is able to drink there whether they are council tenants or otherwise.

Can you please elaborate on what you consider to be an inclusive price for a pint of beer. If a pint is 3.85 then that's ok, an honest egalitarian price for all, but if it's 4.20 it's an exclusionary, snobby, ethnic cleansing price?
