The Lewisham Coffee Co?

OK, this has been bugging us for days now - and lots of you are wondering the same thing - what is "The Lewisham Coffee Co." and what is it doing with The Malt and Hops (formerly Albertines) pub on Lewisham Way?

The Malt and Hops only stayed open very briefly following its rebrand. Now it's closed and some "temporary signage" has popped up with The Lewisham Coffee Co. written on it. If anyone knows what's going on, please share.

Temporary sign-age, like you see on numerous un-let retail spaces around the borough or on planning applications. Looks better than nowt, and maybe evidence they're not targeting it's redevelopment as another pub.


Hopefully that's totally wide of the mark and either there is a new decent pub, or indeed a new Lewisham Coffee company. Unlikely though sadly.

Really? How disappointing. I've never seen temporary signage like that. Not that we particularly need another cafe in the area, it would be nice if that prominently positioned pub was retained as some kind of public space - restaurant, cafe, pub etc rather than succumbing to the SE London pub disease - flats conversion....

Would love for there to be a decent well run pub open here. Huge potential in the area as the Saturday market and Talbot have proven. Something following the lead of the Albert or New Cross House and not The Haberdasher.

Hasn't it been listed? Wont that keep it safe?

Yes, noticed that earlier. Agree, exciting. Not sure what the plan is, but it already looks nice.
