Stanley Arms Saved From Demolition

Planning permission for the replacement of this Bermondsey pub with a residential block has been refused by Southwark Council.

The owner had sought to demolish the current property and replace with a 4 storey block of flats with retail units on the ground floor.

Whilst not currently a real ale pub it would have been a crying shame to lose this fine Victorian building.  In the right hands this Southwark Park Road venue could surely become a destination pub.
