Oh really?! That’s a shame. Quite a few of those around!
It’s probably the only time where a kebab restaurant might be an improvement on what used to be there...
Its a pub renovation apparently.
Hopefully a good one.

No planning app in the website for that address but I'm sure I saw a reference on the weekly update from council (PDf) mentioning planning app for flats at the back?
I was guessing flats. Pubs are closing or have closed, maybe they're bucking the trend?
I didn’t realise how big it was in there
Good news. A decent pub is always welcome. Takes some guts to open a pub these days especially at the moment.
Yes I asked too- definitely a pub. I think they are knocking through to the back to create one bigger bar.
And they haven't got much competition around- discounting the Golden Sands which I'm quite ready to do. The old Green Gate had a good clutch of regulars, so if the new business can retain them and get a few more from a little further afield it could prosper. It was nice enough as it was, but with an Irish base, and the Irish have a different take on beer. In the days when I could drink all night I preferred what are called "session beers" , weakish but tasty bitters like London Pride and Youngs Ordinary. Guinness is most definitely to my mind not a session beer.
Has there been any more news on this? Quite surprised there hasn't been a planning application given the work seems quite extensive.
Any more news on this?
