The owners of the former Victoria pub in Charlton have submitted revised plans to refurbish creating a Dominos Pizza takeaway and flats.
A previous proposal was submitted almost three years ago with no work carried out as the plan was eventually withdrawn due to concerns from planning officers.
A fire hit the building recently. It’s little more than a shell – and that before the fire, though many features remain on the exterior.
Previous plans looked like this:
Planning documents note the poor state of the building. Why has the owner has left it exposed to the elements?
Signage across the front refers to the brewery Truman’s, Hanbury and Buxton, which disappeared after merging with Watney Mann in 1974.
The eagle crest above the entrance was an emblem of Truman’s brewery from its earliest days as the Black Eagle Brewery in 1666.
The old east London Truman’s brewery site is of course now an incredibly popular destination for drinking, food, markets, live music and clubs.
The Truman’s name was reborn in 2013 after being purchased by two individuals, with brewing at Hackney Wick.
One reason for turning this former pub into a Domino’s was the changes in the area and losing many well paying industrial jobs. With at least 7,500 new homes coming to the immediate area in coming years under the Charlton Masterplan maybe one day a number of new pubs in the area will spring into life. And you never know, they may sell beers from the new Truman’s Brewery.
