    Should incorporate "cottage" into the name somewhere

    at least the new pub will contain toilets so passers-by will be able to use the facilities once more.

    It's good to see a pub opening up rather than closing down, but this will be a magnet for hipsters and other monied wankers that are moving into the area.

    Better that than no pub at all. Pubs can change clientele.

    usually the wrong way tho. you won't find many long-term tottenham locals attracted to drinking in hipster hell-holes charging through the nose for artisan wank.

    i can't think of a single pub in hackney which has seen a return from hipsters or other gentrifiers to their previous clientele.

    They can also price out locals and long term patrons when the middle classes roll up.

    Tbf, The Crooked Billet did keep a lot of the old regulars , I went there before it was made over, and a crew of the proper old regulars still come and are made welcome.

    Still preferable to the pub being turned into luxury flats. Over time, a pub can do downmarket just like it can go upmarket.

    Was past the auld jackdaw in Homerton and it's been transformed into some sort of shithole. The chip shop on the other side of the road looks exactly the same as it did in '93.

    There was a bar in Manchester that was previously a public toilet. Don't know if it's still going though.

    It will turn out to be a right shithole.

    Yes I agree about the Billet. Not sure if it was by default or design but they didn't go "full hipster" - had a range of beers including some cheap/normal ones.

    Mixed feelings about this pub. Tottenham is facing an onslaught from developer's now.
    This is the heart of the Latin community in London I believe it's been saved now

    London's Latin Americans Are Bearing the Brunt of Gentrification

    Can't say I feel much love for the hipster bars popping up, they're alien to the area I've known for 30 odd years and the labour council have shown total contempt for residents this side of Haringey

    that's what I'm hoping for at the Toilets. Just about to move there, so this will be the closest pub to me.

    to be fair the council have long been contemptuous of residents in the western half of the borough too

    Your probably aware they decimated wood green library and moved council services there. That place used to be packed with students from local colleges.

    Massive lot of council land in Hornsey turned into luxury flats and a Sainsbury's. I could go on but feeling a bit ranty
