About the Pub

We found a planning application from 2018 to grant permission for change of use. Walked by in November 2020 and there was a skip outside and the pub interior was being ripped out. There is a large site to side of pub which also has permission for flats.

Castle Bar, Camden Road – planning permission granted in 2018 for demolition of pub, with retention of façade for offices (P2015/4496/AOD). Work noted as started in Nov 2020.

It looks like permission was granted on appeal to redevelop to site surrounding the pub. After reading the report it doesn’t mention the pub that much.

Appeal A Ref: APP/V5570/A/12/2182172

Exan Coachworks, 392 Camden Road/1 Hillmarton Road, London

“The development proposed is the refurbishment and redevelopment of the existing coach-works and the erection of a four storey building to accommodate new workshop space and ancillary office/administration facilities plus nine residential units.”

“The site is an ‘L’ shaped plot which wraps around the Victorian pub sitting at the corner of Camden Road and Hillmarton Road. This pub, known as The Castle Bar, comprises a main building of three storeys and single storey wings that abut the appeal site at its frontages onto both Camden Road and Hillmarton Road. As far as the appeals are concerned I consider the impact on the Hillmarton Road frontage to be of most importance. This frontage currently consists of a single storey building of little intrinsic architectural merit. The adjacent building to the south east is a single storey, pitched roof industrial unit of utilitarian appearance whilst the flat roofed single storey wing of the pub (with its small extension) lies to the northwest. The wing of the pub is fairly ornate with regularly spaced and heavily decorated arched openings facing onto Hillmarton Road.“


This place closed for a period but has now re-opened after a re-fit. Subsequently split into a b&b, "392 bar" and "Marisko seafood Restaurant"

Update Sept 2020 - Seems lifeless, with a new website, the name not reflected on the pub itself. A sign has appeared fitted to the railings. A similar one can be seen attached to the right hand side at first floor level - site acquired by Rehoboth Property International - - does not sound good.
