Greenwich Lord Hood pub replacement nears completion

A new structure that’s replaced a demolished Greenwich pub is now almost complete.

The Lord Hood stood beside Up the Creek comedy club until demolition in 2018.

The replacement building is now pretty much complete and comprises eight flats above a commercial unit. At the time of application, developers stated pub use but we shall see.

The previous pub had been threatened with demolition in the mid 2000s, and by the mid 2010s the fate of a somewhat handsome interwar pub building was sealed with demolition approved.

There’s just one additional floor in height with the new build, and a chance to renovate the pub upper floors for flats alongside an extension to the rear was not taken.

Up the Creek has also changed substantially in terms of colour scheme.

Render before work begun

The Lord Hood used to hold live jazz events until closure. While it had its critics it had a lot of potential.

Other pubs nearby have been demolished in recent years, including the former Thames Inn:

As soon as it came down the plot was put up for sale. This was approved:

Approved November 2018

 

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.
