I live on St Germans Road so I have taken a lot of interest (my husband calls it nosiness!) in the site. When the pub closed and was gutted, I spoke to a man working there and he told me the Britannia Pub Company (owner of the Half Moon and the Herne) had bought it and that they planned to open in two weeks. Well clearly that didnt happen. The man also told me they were really pleased with the purchase as there are so few local pubs. About a month ago I saw someone measuring up. I hoped they had decided they need to spend some cash on it before opening up. But it sounds like it was Mr Tesco...

I really hope it doesn't turn into a Tesco. Ignoring any access issues etc. wouldn't the old indian restaurant on the corner be a better site?

There is a real need for a top notch community pub. We used to use the pub regularly and it was one of the reasons we decided to buy on St Germans Road. I know the old manager had a hard time of it, but it didnt offer what we need - I got fed up of my husband moaning about the c**p beer and being served a "latte" (nescafe mixed with milk and served with a straw). I'm sure with some hard work and style the pub would a great success again. I would love to run it but Id find it hard not to drink/eat the profits away...
