I am informed that the pub was sold for housing, and as soon as the planning permission was approved the building was demolished in April 2016. An ugly block of flats has been built on the site.

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.
