I'm sure I red on here that Valentines is going to be replaced by new-build, pretend quality flats.

bump again!

Just noticed a banner on the facade The George today announcing that it will be [re]opening soon as a "bar and playground". Not sure if this qualifies it as a pub, though...

Around 12 months ago the George lease was being marketed. IIRC something not a million miles from 50k pa - which is a lot of beer to sell.

I passed it the night before last and there were clear signs of activity inside. Not sure what, though.

It's going to be called The Old School Yard

"A school-themed cocktail bar"??!

Inappropriate hardly describes it ...

and a playground?

Come on, with the number of school disco nights around one more is scarcely 'inappropriate'.

That part of Long lane isn't where I'd choose to have a pub though.

...but how 'bout a 'bar and playground'? dust off those old uniforms, folks...

Will they serve school lunches and school dinners?

I'm interested to see exactly who they pitch this place to. Agree the location is a bit too far off Borough High Street to attract passing trade. Is there a critical mass of potential clients in this area to make it viable?
