Albertines spring clean

The pub currently living with the working title "The Lewisham Coffee Co", briefly known as the Malt & Hops and once known as Albertines is getting work done. 

This photo, taken through glass in this morning's drizzle, doesn't really do it justice but thanks to a lick of paint, some sanding and a de-clutter, it's already looking nice. 

Whether it heralds a re-opening or is just evidence that the owners are finally putting some effort in to shifting it remains to be seen, but this pub has great potential in an area that still has too few good pubs to choose from.
