What history? This wasn't a very old pub - just badly run, unhygienic and selling vile beer. Bound (and desereved) to fail - just like the Greyhound, New Inn and the Causeway, all nearby.

What a shame it's gone, there was so much history about the place.

Yet another local pub boarded up for conversion or demolition for yet more apartments.

Puzzled why our councils subsidises places for the community to get together, while at the same time encouraging our locals to be destroyed.

Unless planners stop treating a pub and it's car park as a brown field development opportunity & give pubs some protection, few will be able to survive.

The Greyhound (next pub to the North) suffered an appalling bad conversion into flats & had all the character of the old building sucked out.

The Causeway (next pub to the South) destroyed to build 30+ apartments (how can profit from pints keep a pub going when it's car park is worth 7million as soon as planning permission is granted?)

The New Inn (the nearest pub opposite) The old landmark building that used to greet people entering Redhill from the North. is now a tatty plumbing shop

I can confirm that as reported, this pub CLOSED last Monday as expected. I have further been informed that the owner sold the building to a developer, which confirms my fear that there is no posibility of this being re-opened as a pub, and will probably face demolition rather than conversion.

Another one bites the dust.

It is with regret that I announce that according to local sources, the Scud is to close its doors on Monday 7 September.

Although it was never a personal favourite of mine, and sadly the potential improvements I had hoped were to materialise in 2007 never really did, I shall still morn the passing of a long-established community pub, which despite some shortcomings always appeared to try hard to hold on to its local custom. In today's market, I suppose that just isn't enough. Anyway, assuming what I hear is correct, you have 5 days to pay your respects if you feel so inclined.

No word yet as to whether it might be taken over with a view to re-opening as a pub, but experience in these matters suggests that conversion to a private dwelling, or worse still demolition to make way for a colourless block of utilitarian apartments, is a more likely fate. I hope I am wrong - as the predictions I made about this place 2 years ago on this site prove.
