It seems that a small victory has been won for a change. Let's try and hang on to this very pleasant pub! Great to sit outside in the summer and also very nice upstairs in cooler times. The International Brigade Memorial Trust has been using it for a long time and we hope that we can continue to do so.
Let's support one of our good local watering holes!!
The notices about the live-in guardians are still there but they have covered the windows and there are notices up saying the pub is being refurbished and will re-open shortly. These have appeared only in the last couple of days I believe.
I've not been in, but if there's no first floor pub space, it sounds like they've, at least in part, implemented a plan that was denied on application (http://www.london-se1.co.uk/news/view/9069) - what's going on?
