Intrepid Fox To Close

Curse my friends page for letting me know the sad news that The Intrepid Fox - pub for over 250 years and heavy metal hangout for as long as I can remember - has been sold and is closing within the next THREE weeks!!!!

Another classic venue and piece of London's alternative history bites the dust it seems. A petition has been made but if it's up for redevelopment I doubt that will be able to help. But hey, doesn't mean we should write and complain!

It'll be sad to see the place disappear. I tend to only pop in there about 6-10 times a year but it's one of the landmarks of central London for me :(

Given the circumstances of this, I think it's well worth lodging a complaint somewhere. The address that's given is of the previous owners (those who sold it) afaik, so not actually that much use I think. The following might be useful;

I've set up an information page, for what good it may do, for those who are interested in either trying to save the place or at the very least lodging their objections to the development;

Is that where you took Gab and myself?

If so, that was a great pub!

We might be down your end soon again by the way!
