London Regional Inventory Update - November 2006

Here is an update on the London Regional Inventory of Pub Interiors of Special Historic Interest. This update contains additions, deletions and changes made since Update No.5 (July 2006).

North London

N1: Island Queen, 87 Noel Road - is currently undergoing repairs to its ceiling but remains open.

South East London

SE5: Joiners' Arms, 35 Denmark Hill - has been added to the Regional Inventory.

SE15: Glengall Tavern, 1 Bird in Bush Road - has been added to the Regional Inventory.

SE16: Mayflower, 117 Rotherhithe Street - I hear that it has been refurbished but I haven't inspected it yet.

SE22: Herne Tavern, 2 Forest Hill Road - I hear that it has been refurbished. I haven't inspected it yet but reports indicate that the refurbishment has been a sensitive one.

South West London

SW11: Windsor Castle, 36 St John's Hill - has been added to the Regional Inventory.

SW15: Duke's Head, 8 Lower Richmond Road - after gaining listed building consent for refurbishment work started earlier this autumn and the pub reopened on Monday 30 October. I think that on the whole Young's have done a good job here. The large riverside room is now smarter but still comfortable and the beautiful fabrics (upholstery and curtains) add a touch of luxury. In my opinion, however, the decision to split the etched glass screen between the two front rooms with a doorway was regrettable but apart from this the pub's original features have been enhanced by this refurbishment.

SW17: White Lion, 99 Summerstown - has been added to the Regional Inventory.

West London

W6: Queens Arms, 171 Greyhound Road - this pub has been completely done-up and is now an upmarket gastropub run by the same people as the Freemasons in Wandsworth. It has been deleted from the Regional Inventory owing to an insensitive refurbishment.

W9: Warrington Hotel, 93 Warrington Crescent - was bought by celebrity restaurateur, Gordon Ramsay in October as one of a chain of gastropubs. He is reported to be very aware of the importance of its interior so here's hoping.

WC1: Duke of York, 7 Roger Street - some of its etched windows have been replaced with clear glass but in my opinion this is not enough to affect its National Inventory status.

Outer London

UB6: Bridge, Western Avenue, Greenford - was refurbished earlier this year but I haven't inspected it yet.

Finally, a message from Geoff Brandwood: Christmas is coming. Stuck for prezzies? Why not give your nearest and dearest a copy of 'Licensed to Sell: The History and Heritage of the Public House' co-authored by Geoff Brandwood and Andrew Davison with Mick Slaughter's brilliant photography? A mere £13.50 including UK postage. Geoff could send direct with a message of your choosing. And, of course, if you haven't got a copy yourself yet, then now's the time. Cheques should be made out to Geoff Brandwood at 2 Rothesay Avenue, Richmond-on-Thames, TW10 5EA.
