Save The Birkbeck

A petition is now online to help save the Birkbeck (see previous post). Property developers are circling. Leyton does not need any more flats – but it certainly does need this pub, one of the few places in East London serving real ale back when nobody else wanted to know. It’s a viable, well-run boozer that’s only just starting to fulfil its potential. This crisis isn’t the fault of the tenants – it’s the PubCo going bust. It’s not overdoing it to say the entire area would be diminished if the Birkbeck was to close.
