Formerly a Courts furniture store but was controversially opened up as a 400 capacity super pub in December 2000 in time for Christmas.

Despite opposition from local residents concerned about noise and late-night disturbance - although the threatened lap dancers failed to materialise - the pub was a popular venue until landlord Surrey Free Inns called in the administrators in 2005.

It stood empty until September 2008, when it opened as a British Heart Foundation Furniture and Electrical shop.

 

Local knowledge, further pictures, and licensee information would be appreciated.

I will be adding the historical information when I find or are sent it, but this project is a very big one, and I do not know when or where the information will come from.

All emails are answered.
