The number of nationally-important historic pub interiors considered to be 'at risk' remains at a disturbing level.
Birmingham , Handsworth, B21 9LX
Update 01/12/2021 : Sold October 2016 to Toofan Singh Ltd, a video production company from Derby. Nothing has happened since. Despite being Grade II-star listed, the pub has suffered from a lack of maintenance and care for many years; it closed in 2008 and is considered 'at risk'. Latest information is that it is likel...
Bradford , BD1 3AA
Update 01/08/2022 : The pub was sold in early 2022 to a nearby Indian restaurant but before the listing was confirmed. The new owners have already carried out work including removal of a counter and replacement of the front windows with uPVC. The Council's planning enforcement team has been asked to act.
Hammersmith , W6 9JJ
Update 17/06/2021 : June 2021: Permission to convert to residential with proviso that ground floor remains intact. Is being advertised as a film set etc. - https://jjmedia.com/locations/hammersmith-pub-location so is clearly under threat.
Hayes End , UB4 8HX
Update 17/06/2021 : Bought by Hayes Muslim Centre but planning permission for conversion to community centre refused.
Hull , HU3 1LR
Update 01/12/2021 : The Polar Bear reopened on 24/8/21 initially only as a late-night music venue (10.30pm - 2.30am) and usually with an admission charge. However, music events are now taking place that start earlier in the evening and some have no cover charge. Discussions are to place shortly with the lessees to enco...
Purton , GL13 9HU
Update 28/05/2022 : Currently closed but available to let with offer from owners Berkeley Castle Estates to improve/extend the property. Tragically, they have ripped out the bar counter and bar-back so destroying its inventory credentials.
Renton , G82 4NL
Update 17/06/2021 : Planning permission for change of use to residential agreed in 2021 so almost certainly lost.
Smethwick , B66 4RQ
Update 29/05/2022 : Closed in 2012 and sold to new owners in 2016. The upper floors are in residential occupation but the former pub parts remain boarded up. There was a fire in early 2022 but seemingly no significant damage was done to the bar area. The Council's Conservation Officer keeps a close eye on the property...
Stoke-on-Trent , Pittshill, ST6 6LS
Update 28/05/2022 : Closed early 2021 by the elderly owner/licensee who continues to live on the premises. The Council's planning enforcement team has been informed but has not yet investigated.
