About the Pub

After closing in 2014, reopened in 2017 as Plaquemine Lock operated by Jacob Kennedy who runs a number of restaurants in the West End. Pub serves Cajun and Creole food from Louisiana. The two large murals (in the dining room and above the bar) are made by Jacob’s mother, Haidee Becker. The small paintings and pictures around the pub are various – some are gifts made to the pub, others were in the pub before they renovated it. A good number are by New Orleans folk artist Dr Bob Art. The actual Lock is, unsurprisingly, in Louisiana and it was opened by Jacob's great grandmother, Carrie B Schwing. On CAMRA London Regional inventory.

Planning permission (P2019/0164/FUL) for change of use of the first and second floors of the existing public house to residential was refused by Islington Council. Reasons for refusual relate to lack of affordable housing contributions, not to protection of the public house. The proposal was considered acceptable in design terms, as no alternations would be made to the interior, or exterior of the building. No appeal lodged as of January 2020.

Note about previous PA in planning statement: Planning permission for the comprehensive refurbishment and extension of the premises was granted in May of 2015 (under application P2015/1015), and the public house reopened in late 2016. A condition (Condition 10) was imposed that stated that the floorspace on the upper floors can only be used as residential accommodation in connection to the public house
