Would people rather it be left to crumble?

It was a dump when it was an operating pub, there is no way it will ever re-open as a pub so why not flatten it and build something new?

I would be interested to know what the plans are for it though? and for that matter what the fate of the woodman will be?

Does anyone have any idea why Andrew Snape has put in for the pub to be demolished.
Have they an invested interest or something.

I suppose it will be for more commercial usage. They'll have to be careful though what they intend as that part of the A6 is already so congested anymore traffic spilling out on to it wouldn't be good idea. Never stopped them before though....

I feel sorry for Mount Pleasant if the powers to be think that this road can stand anymore traffic on it they are sadly mistaken. It full to busting as it is ..what with hospital staff parking up all day and being a throughfare for Goodwins Heavy goods vehicles.

Is the building beyond repair? Seems a shame not to preserve an old building if it could be repaired and reopened with a new purpose. I guess it all comes down to money, probably cheaper to knock it down and replace it.

I wonder if Snapes are planning on building a new office there?

I had a relative who had insider knowledge of how the Robinson family works, if they thought The Grove, or The Woodman for that matter, could turn a profit, The Grove would have had a refit well before it fell into such a sorry state, as it stands it is nothing but an eyesore. The Robinsons are well known, throughout the brewery,for their frugal and teetotal approach to business, that's how they've done so well in such a competitive business

It sold for £80k in February last year;

Lot 54.

There isn't enough trade to support all the pubs as it is and by virtue of the fact it looks like a watering hole and where it is I couldn't see people fighting over wanting some other use for it.

Obviously Robinsons carried out an assessment of the triangle of pubs, The Anchor, The Woodman and The Grove, The Anchor came out on top so the other two went to the wall, as the saying goes, "it's just business" .

Anyone that ever went in the place could have done that assessment. I went in there about 10 years ago as part of a pub crawl. I wiped my feet as I left.
