Antic Ltd enters administration

On Twitter, news breaks that Antic Ltd, an offshoot of pub company Antic, has entered administration, meaning an uncertain future of a number of local leasehold pubs, including Jam Circus and The Royal Albert.

Beer and pub writer John Brown reports:

To clarify there's Antic, which is OK, and Antic Ltd, an offshoot, reportedly in administration.

Liberty Beer adds:

The Administrator says they will continue as going concerns for now.

Antic Ltd's pubs include Jam Circus (which has been closed due to fire since December) and The Royal Albert (which was put up for sale recently). Both are very popular and either would be a huge loss to the area if it were to close. Hopefully a good buyer can be found soon.

Antic London's roster of pubs includes the Catford Bridge Tavern, The Sylvan Post in Forest Hill and the soon-to-open Deptford Job Centre.
