This was a 9/10 pub, probably spent cumulative 500 hours drinking, chatting, socialising there (but was never part of the "backroom" crowd).
Featured in every London "Historic Pub" guide ...
One of few Hall & Woodhouse tied houses outside the West country (Badger beers) ...
But lease belonged to Church Estates, who maybe had problems with licenced premisise on their books (how 19th'C), or more probably were looking to maximise site rental !
Whatever the Archery despite its 200 year old history could not survive ...
Its now a posh French Restaurant, very good by all accounts, but how many of us ex-regulars can afford a 90 meal more than once or twice a year ?
We now use the nearby Victoria, guess Fullers would never let this happen to one of their "trophy historic" pubs ?

A very sad loss, I spent many happy evenings in this pub when I used to work at Paddington, always a good selection of well kept beers, and a proper back room with a dart board and fire. Another nail in the coffin of the great British Boozer.

It is indeed now a restaurant - French, so I gather,not that I will be going there needless to say

Bad news
Sign on hoarding gives notice of application to open a bar/restaurant on the site
One of my favourite London pubs looks destined to become just a happy memory
