I agree on the pinkish colour with one of the comments - It's a great colour smiling smiley

The whole thing is a 21st century swindle. And frankly a disgrace. How can a successful and much-loved part of the community be taken away so easily.
May I bring everyone's attention to what these guys who are apparently taking over say they're about.

Dave Ford, who is behind this joint venture with Ei that is taking over the Palmerston, said as recently as February, the following.

"We tend to take on pubs that have been shut for a while with the intention of giving the community back their local."

You're a hypocrite Mr Ford. If you want to give, as you say "the community back their local," give us back the Palmerston.

Until that time, I hope I see no one in whatever emerges. You don't have to call it a boycott. It's standing up for the community and its people.

I suggest that when Mr. Ford's crew turn up, we throw this line back in his face, time and time again.

Not even sure that a 'boycott' will be necessary. Looking at 'The Star of the East' the food offering is nothing like the quality of the Palmerston, so think that it won't necessary attract the same people. Will be interesting to see if there is a market for the middle of the road pubco pub food offering? Feels a bit like the pub food bit is well catered for, but I guess we will see once it opens. It reminds me a little of when Adventure Bar moved in, totally misjudged the market and closed down in a relatively short period of time.

Adventure Bar should have worked at that point but now it would be Peckham smiling smiley

Let's wait and see. Ultimately this is a commercial dispute, we don't have full details of.

Does seem very odd current owners own the freehold though. Presumably they'll be able take it back eventually.

Will the Palmerston not be looking to reopen at a different site?

Cannot think of any availble sites on lordship lane - they are local so would want to stay in the area where their loyal customers are

They could wait for Young’s to give up on the cherry tree and move in there! Would actually work as a pub AND a dining room!
