Two Brewers Public House, Gloucester Road

(nr the whitehorse pub) as you may not be aware, this place is due to close on 31st May as the lease runs out.

According to the current landlord, the business is so slow on non football days that its not financially viable to run it anymore...(indicitive of all pubs these days i reckon).

its a shephards Neame, so maybe they will have a temporary landlord in there (who knows!).
what are your memories of this place, and do you have any new info about any possible takeover of it??

I spent many years using it as my local (although I didn't live near it). Many pints before Palace and the bladder-stretching walk to San Selhurst before missing kick off. I even persuaded the landlord to sponsor my football team. Happy memories, I hope it gets a reprieve.

Haven't been there for some time but this news is a surprise. It always used to be a busy little place, with lots of local, regular customers. The beer was good too.

So what went wrong? Wasn't there some sort of dispute a couple of years back with a manger who tried to squat whilst some new guy took over?

For all you door mongerers out there, it certainly isn't closing. Darren the current landlord has had an offer from the Brewery to good to refuse and is taking over another one of their pubs.

Whilst the Brewery have yet to find a long term tenant, they aren't ruling anything out, and we expect to hear some fabulous news regarding the holding manager before the day is out. It does seem more and more common for pubs to be run by holding managers for long periods of time.

Yes trade is down, but then it is in all three local pubs, and in pubs across the country. But the pub won't be closing anytime in the near future.

That's good news Griggs.

I used to drink there on occasion when I lived down Whitehorse Rd

Always friendly in there, Oranjeboom on draught & Spitfire posters, nice quiet little boozer, would be sorely missed.

I rarely drink on that side of the ground. However it has always been a better pub than either the selhurst arms or the white horse.

I haven't been in the white horse since the new owners took over. However that place would need some serious money spent on it to get rid of the deep fat fryer smell alone!! It really was a terrible terrible pub.
