Now reopened as The Priory.

Only time will tell if the formula is right as when I walked past on Saturday at around 5pm the place was spectacularly empty. I wonder if a psuedo gastropub is what Orpington needs?

It would be hindered by the fact that the premises that was Ram Ba Ba/Mr Jacks has now reopened as a nice looking Mexican restaurant, but only time will tell if this is a winning formula

Definitely re-opening on Friday, 2nd November as the Priory Tavern & Refectory Restaurant. Offering a wide selection of continental lagers, including Amstel, Staropramen, San Miguel and Kronenbourg Blanc, plus 4 real ales (Ruddles Best, Harvey's Sussex Bitter, TT Landlords, Abbot Ale), 2 cask ciders (Thatcher's Cheddar Valley & Weston's Old Rosie), 2 keg bitters (Whitbread Poachers & GK IPA Draughtflow) plus Stowford Press keg cider. Classical English dining with a touch of sophistication.

The application for a new premises license is currently with Bromley Council, with a hearing in early September. It will, subject to the grant of the license, be opening as the Priory Tavern & Refectory Restaurant in late September. How do I know? I'm the new landlord.... check out the reviews on my other pub, the Two Brewers in Dartford.....

If this happens it will be a welcome adition to the High street, which has become a bit dead of late.

What we need is something different, not another Wetherspoons and not another White Hart. A decent boozer with decent beer. Lets hope this comes off.

Will hopefully be re-opening at the end of the summer with a new name and a new range including 4 cask ales and a cask cider. Moving spectacularly up-market with a complete food offering too.
