Worcester Park Tavern Closure Threat

The future of the Worcester Park Tavern public house has been thrown into doubt after its owners put the building up for sale.

Despite refurbishing the pub a decade ago its owners, the Spirit Pub Company, have struggled to make the Worcester Park Tavern financially viable.

Local resident June Fraser, who fears that the building could be demolished to make way for flats, told the Worcester Park blog:

"It is a local community pub used by many elderly and lonely people as a meeting point. It is also a local landmark which used to be a beautiful building until Spirit let is get into such a state."
