I see they've spent the day boarding up the Uxbridge Arms on the Rockingham Estate - not just the building itself, but putting a hoarding all around.

Never that busy, so always surprised how it kept going. Anybody know what's happening - hoarding suggests some sort of redevelopment.

More posh flats?

Yes redeveloped into flats , appreciate it was never massively busy but provided a lifeline for some locals and karaoke night was busy. I liked the fact it was somewhere quiet I could go, had a pool table, speak to proper English locals and shots were always served up as doubles priced as singles.

Some sort of pub/bar is supposed to be part of the redevelopment:

There will be a block of flats to level of the flats next door, and a bar on the ground floor and possibly in the basement (I ought to know but I can't remember from the consultation). Traditional pubs have been almost wiped out by the smoking ban and the trend to drinking much more cheaply at home, but it's a sombre thought that an area which used to have about twelve working pubs now has none between Elephant & Castle and the Roebuck.
