The Richard 1 pub in Greenwich (or Tolly if you remember that far back) is to be renovated by operator Young’s.
Out go the hanging baskets and the colour scheme including white on upper floors and a predominantly blue colour scheme at street level. Raised planters are seen in renders of the finished scheme.
Work inside will comprise of “a minor refurbishment of the internal & external areas. Internally, this will include repairs to the existing altro and timber flooring where required, sanding, re-staining and re-sealing the existing timber flooring throughout, alterations to existing modern joinery throughout, and a general redecoration”.
Over in Charlton and it’s sad news as the White Swan has been closed at short notice. It looks permanent. Again, high rents appear to play a part.
