It is incredible how people are adverse to change whatever the change is. The least I can say is that E&C has not been a great place to live and has been a big failure as an urban project. I do not particularly like Foxtons, but if they come to the area, it is kind of good news as it means that E&C is becoming attractive, including to a younger active crowd that needs to find a central London location to live and prosper.
Like it or not this will happen with or without you. Trying to preserve an old pub location is just a hopeless attempt to resist the inevitable transformation ahead.
