The handwritten sign that went up in November announcing a couple of weeks' closure for refurbishment has long gone. It appears the etched glass screens etc remain but otherwise the pub seems to be a storeroom for the building works going upstairs. We gather the developer is the same one that recently lost his effort to convert the Alexandra in Fortis Green into flats. This is how it was

The most striking feature of this pub is the very large glazed office occupying much of the area behind the bar. The main room is split by the vestigial remnant of a former wooden division. A smaller room at the rear, featuring a piano, leads via a door to the attractive, shrub-lined, heated outdoor drinking area in the former stable yard. Listed on CAMRA's London Regional Inventory of historic pub interiors. Very much a community pub, sponsoring three local league football teams and a darts team, and attracting clientele of all age groups. Quiz night on Wednesdays. The knowledgeable tenants are very aware of the pub's features and history and changes made since their arrival have not damaged any of the surviving features. Food, ranging from steaks and traditional English fayre to Mediterranean style nibbles, is available Monday to Fri from 17.00-21.00, and on Sat/Sun from opening until 21.00. Three-star hotel accommodation is also available, all rooms being en-suite.
