You don't win friends with salad.
Hollowlegs, the local blogger who revealed (to us at least) that the Goldsmiths Tavern had been taken over, now reveals the pub's planned new name: The New Cross House.
She casually drops the new name in to her mouth-watering review of Meateasy, the new restaurant opening on the pub's first floor soon. She says:
With the pub downstairs with the #MEATEASY upstairs, it's not a pop-up; more chop-up. Think dive bar - it's open till 2am on Thursdays and Fridays, 5am on Saturdays. There will be parties, boozing, burgers and other meaty delights, and all five minutes walk from my flat.
