In October 2012 local residents were reported to be fighting to keep it open after a property firm had sent in the bailiffs and changed the locks. Stephen Thompson, the former licensee, said:
- This pub has been closed, not because it isn’t profitable, but because an offshore property developer with no connection or concern for Lewisham, wants to make money out of the land value of the pub and placed unreasonable demands on my business including raising the rent from £38k to £60k.
