I don't know, but I am guessing that the owners have worked out that they can make more money by knocking down the pub and building apartments (or whatever they are planning to do).

If true, that would imply that not enough customers are visiting the P&H and spending their money in there. That would chime with my own experience which is that it's a pretty shabby place, often smells of chips and vinegar, and just feels old and tired.

So the owners have decided to bail. It's a commercial decision.

Moaning about heritage and conservation isn't really realistic. If the building doesn't work as a pub, it will eventually go. Just follow the money.

the only thing that would help is if more people went in there and spent their money and made it more profitable. then they wouldn't want to tear it down.

But I doubt all the people who are trying to save the P&H are actually regular customers. And just "wanting to keep the lovely building" is not a realistic proposition in this day and age.

Shame, but them's the hard facts.
