Max Barney Pub Company

About the Pub

10 August 2020 - walked past last week. It was closed, windows obscured, with a bell labelled 'ground floor flat'. The pub freehold was for sale last year. The sales document refers to a lease expiring in Feb. The upstairs accommodation is part of the pub. The pub is no longer available on the AG&G website. The owner is still listed at the Land Registry as the Max Barney Pub Company although it is possible the sale has not yet been processed.

Under new management from March 2018 with only Wandle on handpump on Tuesday visit. Previously reopened after a brief period of closure in 2013 under new management, guests from Hackney and ELB have been featured. It remains pretty much as it was with an array of large white tables, candles. The outside fabric of the pub, a nice entrance way and etched windows with the pub's name remain from a previous refurbishment which saw the bar shift position and a large portrait of William IV acquired. Upstairs is a larger room (with the original pub shutters found in a local second-hand shop!). There is also a smaller private dining room.

Historic Interest

Local listing:- This early 19th century public house is a handsome building that falls at the end of a long terrace of Georgian houses. Located on a corner plot this three-storey building has a roof hidden behind a parapet with simple cornicing. The brickwork, window cills and six-over-six timber sash windows have all been painted dark grey. Two of the windows have been bricked up. The ground floor has three double doors and large windows between pilasters with Doric capitals. Globe lanterns on pilasters bear the brewery name ‘Charringtons’ – a local brewery that was set up in the mid 18th century. Double trap doors to the cellar.
