Issues to check would be:

What licence do they hold for alcohol sales? If they are selling alcohol beyond their hours they can be shut down.
What entertainment licence do they hold? Are there restrictions on time etc? If they breach it, they can loose it.

Bromley's excessive noise info is here: http://www.bromley.g...rting_noise.htm

Croydon's is here: http://www.croydon.g...ollution/noise/

The Cambridge is in LB Croydon, so anyone intending to make a complaint should use that link.

I think technically the Cambridge sits within Croydon's boundary - Croydon Council would have granted them a licence via the recently adjusted licensing procedures that needs to be honoured - I think the Alma (Bromley) had to clean its act up after complaints about noise round the back and now the car park area is closed after a certain time

Thanks all - I'm passing this all on to my neighbour who is already on the case (and also because I will be moving soon anyway - but not because of the pub)! I'll let you know if anything happens.

What concerns me is this, If the music is so loud now, ow loud will it be in the summer when all the windows will be open. I know that this pub caters for a community niche but it should not be allowed to make so much noise People complain about the noise produced by the Alma when it is much less and is at least from local artistes. This DJ orientated noise from the Cambridge is impersonal and too loud in a residential area.

Whilst on the subject, why is noise from religious bodies treated differently. I am horrified by the amplified preaching from the Salvation Army Hall which can be heard all over Westow Street on Sundays and the amplified noise that eminates from the Church in St Aubyns.

God never needed a microphone so why do these people?

With you there Silver. Anyone who lives near the Queens Hotel is treated to blasts of ministry every summer Sunday.

Ministry? - as in the seminal industrial metal band who penned the classic " Jesus built my hotrod"?

Wouldn't object to a bit of that on a sunday morning! :-)

I live halfway down Farquhar Road close to Spinney Gardens and have assumed for the last few weeks that the amplified music and drums I can hear in the evenings and the early mornings when I am lying in bed has come from the park (or maybe the Victorian Subway under the Parade as we've had some problems with people breaking in there in the past).

Sunday evening I was walking up towards the Triangle, and noticed the familiar noise which grew louder and louder as I walked on. I was amazed to realise that the noise I hear so often is actually coming from this pub! I mean, I must live 600 or 700 yards from it! I pity people close by.

Anyone had any joy with the council on this one (and which council is it)?

I think I'm going to stick my oar in on this one.

I thought this place was under new management in the last few weeks?

The same bloke (eastern European looking, aged in his late twenties /early thirties) that was working in the Cambridge before is still working in there now. That sign is somewhat confusing as I thought that he ran this pub before!!

I have poked my head through the door a couple of times, but never really fancied going in.

We did notice a sign by the door which made us laugh as we walked by at the weekend though, something along the lines of 'this pub will be selling coffee and food FOR THE FIRST TIME soon!'

So what type of venue is this now? An after-hours disco? Pub? Cafe?

Passed by yesterday. It's still a pub. Ok so a couple of years ago the average age in there was about 87 and all the old geezers shared about one tooth between them.
Younger crowd in there now. It's alright. Down to earth. Beer wasn't great but it felt like a boozer in south london which can be a rare thing.

Yeah fair point. I was purchasing a donor kebab (always a pleasure) from the kebab shop a few doors down from there one friday night a month or two back and things was looking a bit tasty outside the cambridge. It looked like Fight Night. I would steer clear friday pm and saturday pm for sure unless of course I erm wanted some (coughs).
