Have you been to many of them?
They seem to be springing up quite a lot now, especially down my way (SE). They either just do up knackered old boozers or essentially take over a building with local historic value that's falling into disrepair and turn it into a pub.
A new one opened this week in Forest Hill called the Sylvan Post. It's the old post office and they've kept all the safes, counters and post boxes inside. It's a bit 'cool for school' in theory, but in reality a nice break from the norm. A bit like Balham Bowls Club. Not sure i could ever make it my local, but good to pop into.
Been to many? Like them / hate them?
What's you favourite left-of-centre boozer and why?
