Has the Ship been saved?

I've heard this pub is re-opening soon, by the same people who saved the Ship on Plumstead common

Looks like my last line was rather prophetic and my sources tell me that the pub is now once again boarded up.

Whatever intrinsic charm or character I found in this place previously has all but dissipated since the place went through its temporary closure. The place is now little more than a hollow shell, still devoid of ambience and displaying all the attributes that put me off certain pubs to start with. Gone are the ale pumps and the old piano leaving a keg bar and a corner full of speakers for those dreaded DJ/Karaoke nights and intrusive loud music. The customer base was drawn from a mix of yoofs on the pool table (I almost tripped over their skateboard that had been abandoned at the bar), dodgy “who the fack are ya” types and bored looking families with their prams. The bar staff were toitally inept (the first short changed me but I didn’t initially notice as I was given the majority of my change in 2ps and 5ps, assuming of course that a pint of Guiness doesn’t cost £3.80!). My friend came in after me and ordered a bitter shandy and received a lager shandy. The floor and benches look like they haven’t seen a brush or a vacuum cleaner for weeks. All in all, the place is an extremely tried and sorry looking pub which is a shame because, as I had pointed out before, it has some good traditional features and a good layout. I think it’s a fair bet that this place will be added to the pub closure statistics at some time in the not too distant future (again!).

Went past it last night on the bus - the shutters are off and the front door once again open!
