The Antigallican pub on Woolwich Road is up for sale, nearly two years after councillors backed plans to build eight flats alongside it.
The auction house Allsop has set a guide price of £3,250,000 for the Victorian building.
Once a freehouse in the 1980s and 1990s which brewed its own beer, the pub – which had hotel accommodation above it – had fallen on hard times and had been designated as an away fans’ pub for Charlton Athletic matches. It closed its doors for the last time over a year ago.
In 2017 councillors approved plans to build a two-storey extension with eight flats, a gym and a retail unit, replacing the hotel rooms – with councillors told at the time that it was struggling to compete with low-cost hotels opening up in Woolwich. But last August, a new application was submitted for a three-storey extension to create a 60-room hotel.
It will go under the hammer at a auction of residential properties on Thursday 30 May at the InterContinental Hotel in Mayfair.
