New pubs in West Norwood

Proposed pub site

Jane Pickard & Emmaus staff outside the proposed new pub

The derelict shop at 13-19  Knights Hill, between Emmaus and the new Ladbroke’s betting shop , applied for planning permission to become a bar-restaurant in summer 2008. The final decision will be made on Wednesday 16th December 2009 at Lambeth’s planning committee at 7pm  in Lambeth Town hall . For details of the committee papers see: http://tinyurl.com/yah4558

These meetings are open to the public who may speak in favour or against the proposals.

The shop has been derelict since it was last used as a Job Centre about 10 years ago.  The owners plan a pub similar to Westow House at 79 Westow Hill, The EDT in Lordship Lane and Jam Circus in Brockley Road. See their web site for details : http://www.antic-ltd.com.

And the  new owners of Southern Pride on Elder Road are applying  for a licence under the name of Scandals Bar & Club  http://www.clubscandals.co.uk/index.php.   For details of the licence see http://tinyurl.com/ycxxkd4
Closing date for public ‘representations’ is 28th December 2009.

We still wait to see what happens to The  Gipsy  Queen on Norwood High Street and The Rose & Crown on Crown Lane  which both remain closed.

If you comment on either of these developments please do copy in  Cllr Jackie Meldrum at jmeldrum@lambeth.gov.uk

    I think a nice pub will be just what West Norwood needs. I dont ever fancy some of the other ones like the Norwood hotel, but love the EDT – there are a lot of young professionals like me who want a more trendy pub. It will mean we stay in WN rather than going to Crystal Palace or East Dulwich for a night out.

      Totally agree! It will be so nice to have a proper ‘local’. I love all of Antic’s bars, so really looking forward to seeing what they do here in WN. Slowly but surely I think West Norwood is finally putting it’s mark on the map.

    I agree with Caroline. Fingers Crossed now.
