Without getting into discussion about the success of the Beer Dispensary is this a good sign that the Grove Tavern could be made to work? Please to direct me to any other relevant thread. The Harvester was not my cup of tea, but seemed to be popular enough and I had the odd drink in the garden.

I've popped in a couple of times so far, so far so good.
Not the finished article as they say but a nice space, feels very different to me from the Barcelona days, and a lovely few beers in my experience.

Hopefully it does OK.

Can anyone recall what the place was before Barcelona.

It was a restaurant called Flashmans. I was a young girl when I went there with my family but remember great burgers, steak, ice cream sundaes and a wonderful antique apothecary cabinet as the backdrop.

Iíve been told that a long while before that it was a old school pharmacy - thatís where the cabinet came from.

And the cabinet is still there.

Iíve been in a couple of times since they opened and each time, every other person who arrived at the bar commented how great it was to be able to get a drink locally.

Think it will take some time to establish itself and then, I guess weíll see if there would enoughdenand for the far bigger Grove to re-open. I canít see that as a bar/restaurant only but could have seen it as an inn with rooms until the two proposals for hotels at Forest Hill went in

I'm sure it was another restaurant or wine bar before Flashmans but can't remember the name. The original Flashmans was smaller and they built the wrap around extension at the front. Nice guy ran it, Graham?

Anyway me and MrsOldie popped in the other day to give it a go and we were a bit underwhelmed. The beer wasn't great and the place looked like it could do with a good clean. I'm very glad it's there mind and I'll definitely go back. Maybe I just had a flat pint.

After Flashman's for about 2 years or so it was La Pharmacie - a quasi French-ish bistro sort of place; generally good but I remember some diabolical over-cooked and dried out Cromer crab there. Then the Barcelona chain took the premises over. I agree that the extension to the front was done whilst it was still Flashman's - I can remember the before and after. I think the Flashman's owner/ manager continued to live over the premises for some time. It was Flashman's 30 years ago when I moved to the area.

It could work, but more profitable as flats. Hence itís being allowed to deteriorate to the point where people are begging for it to be knocked down.

There is currently a sign outside the Grove saying it is a pub lease to let, or words to that effect?

Incidentally for those in the area, thereís a sign outside DBD saying they are starting a pub quiz on Weds evenings.

This place is great. Fantastic beer selection, friendly staff. When we went last week there was a pop up menu by Stranger Naans (home made flatbreads & wraps) - turns out they're going to be there daily from tomorrow onwards which is great news because the food was ace!
