What a shame. I remember the glory days of the 90s when they had the 3 separate bars (snug, Irish and public), boxing on the telly, good music on the jukebox and the L-shaped pool table. I recall seeing TV unfunny man Diaria O'Brien at a comedy night upstairs in the function room as well. Hopefully it will stay as an entertainment venue, maybe the McMuffins have purchased it and will turn it into the Leytonstone Granada.

No, they would want the Council Tax payers to fund it.
