Property developer Mendoza, the company that owns the White Swan, has put the pub on the market for prospective tenants – at a rent of £40,000 a year.
You can see full particulars at the estate agent Jenkins Law.
The Charlton Village pub closed suddenly last March – just before the pandemic began – after a lengthy battle to pay the rent demanded by Mendoza, which bought the freehold from Punch Taverns for £900,000 seven years ago.
In November, Mendoza won its long battle to build housing in part of the beer garden, when a Greenwich Council planning committee approved plans to build a home on land behind the pub. A Mendoza representative conceded at the meeting that the rent may have been too high.
According to Jenkins Law, £40,000/pa will also get you a shop unit in Earls Court, a Costa Coffee outlet in West Kensington, a former bank on the Streatham High Road, while the Old Justice pub, on the riverside at Bermondsey with lots of footfall, is on offer for just £32,000 per year.
