This pub has been my local for the last 15 years. It's too smoky, very local, the beer's awful and there are often some rather unsavoury types biding their time there.

I can't seem to break free, though. It's like a home from home. Although I don't go there anywhere near as much as I used to (I used to live in a flat opposite), I can still occasionally be found, slowly pickling myself by the pool table with my extended family of ruffnecks and vagabonds...

Yes if someone pops in there from Anerley, a strange man with his eyes set too close together wanders up to them and says "you're not from round these parts are you?"

Can anyone tell me if John Mogan and his wife Gina still run the pub?

Also - does anyone on here have the correct telephone number of this pub as I have found many different ones on the web.

Thanks

Nice enough traditional pub and was made to feel very welcome by the staff. The same can't be said of some of the regulars though which is why i have not been back since, and thats coming from someone who's run a bar himself. :angry:

Its closed down apparently and going to be a residential development on the site - havent been in there for donkey's and looked and sounded pretty rough and ready but has stood there in Anerley for as lomg as I can remember and will be a loss to what remains of Anerley High Street I think

End of an era. Only ever went in there once... which says a lot.

Tried to post this against the pub thread but its been declared closed and topic locked

Anyway - the pub is still standing and walking passed mid afternoon heard thumping housey style stuff going on - as far as I was aware the pub was closed and was going to be either converted into business use or knocked down. Maybe Fatboy Slim's got a stake in it!

Anyone know anymore?

Looks like its a top rave spot now! The whole building is going thumpity thump and there's a small sign on the fence with a phone number if you want to get in. Friendly fellas leaning over the 1st floor balcony saying howdy as you walk past.

Bromley council have put a noise abatement order up on the door addressed to the "occupiers" of the Thicket Tavern - lots of graffiti has appeared on the upper levels of the building - not sure if its being squatted

The Thicket Tavern was purchased by property developers who have planning permission to convert the building into a 6 flats, plus a ground floor commercial unit (permission given summer 2011[link]).
The commercial unit is approved for A2 use, which means "Financial & Professional Services" which I think will mean occupants such as an estate agent or accountants. Maybe the profit is in the flats and the commercial unit is a token gesture, with the developer wishing to ensure the use of the unit wouldn't lower the value of the flats?

As it's currently empty it's a prime spot for groups looking for a site to hold a Christmas & New Years raves. Assumption is the current residents are telling the authorities they're squatting, but I'd guess it more of a temporary business than a squat. Sites like these get chosen because it's unlikely the police will intervene, and they should be gone before the developer has permission to forcibly remove them. That's assuming they're "squatting", maybe the developers are toasting a successful year?
