What's happened to the Crooked Billet?

(By the almshouses in Penge). It looked boarded up when I walked past on the opposite side of the road yesterday.

Closed for a few weeks for refurbishment. Rumour has it it has been taken over by the same chain “craft union” that own the Pawleyne Arms round the corner and recently acquired the Hill in FH. If this is true then expect cheap drinks, Tv screens for sports etc.

Seems to be a running theme at the moment smaller chains taking over several premises in the same area - eg: Antic have just announced their 3rd location in CO triangle and although nothings happened for over 3 years at a planned location they have 2 locations in Penge.

I thought it already had screens :) But thanks for the information - I was a bit worried it might have closed.
