But Simon the Tanner has planning permission for development already ( I think for 2 flats above). The britannia freehold was sold for 400,000 without planning permission for change of use developement etc, and presumably unless it was sold as a going concern then they have leaseholders and we dont how long their lease has to run.

That said 400,00 did strike me as rather cheap.

it was up for 600,000 before they got planning permission-not sure they will get anywhere near that with the sitting tennants!

Gosh, who will buy a flat right above a pub?

Amazing that you can now see the original window frames of Simon the Tanner and the building they're doing up on the corner of Long Lane and Bermondsey Street, with them having been boarded up for so long. Fingers crossed that whole section of Long Lane is going to get completed this year!

it may not necessarilly be a pub.. spose it could equally be a cafe/bar..
lets hope whoever takes it on is more clued up than the hartley's current runners..
spose with a restaurant opening up at the corner of long lane/berm st.. it seems the right time to unmothball the tanner

being surrounded by flats i think it may be restricted as to what it can be and opening hours

it will probably be left empty for a while and the owners will use the argument it cannot be sold and it will become a flat as well

Anyone know what the latest is? Looks like it's being done up with a view to reopening.

There's an application for a licence variation in the window, but it's undated and it's not on the Southwark online register.

they are trying to market it as a lock up pub. the notice appears to be for a premises variation but I cannot see any details-it looks like they are trying to change some aspect of the bar area around but it does not say what?
