Shame to see another Hounslow pub closed, not that I ever rated it particularly highly. I'm not sure what a Sainsbury's Local or Tesco Express would contribute to the area, given the re-opening of the old Safeways site as Quality Foods. Probably best knocked down and rebuilt as yuppy flats!

The Polish Shop has closed as predicted by raymondo44.
Can't see this place re opening as a pub though.

Now open as a Polish shop - I can't imagine how anyone can make a living from it unless it's a front for something else, since the Hounslow ASDA feels like the biggest Polish supermarket outside Warsaw!

A notice in the window yesterday said "Polish Food Shop opening soon"

HOUNSLOW CHRONICLE 25th November 2009:
The Lord Palmeston pub in Hounslow could be closed for good over claims it is frequented by drug dealers.

The pub in Staines Road has been plagued by problems over the past year, including armed fights, pushers selling heroine and cocaine, and drunk and obstructive staff, according to a damning police report.

The pub has been shut since mid-September when a routine inspection found a series of potential fire hazards, including a faulty smoke alarm system and signs of an unreported blaze.

Councillors will decide on December 1 whether its owners should be stripped of their licence.

Osprey Pubs, which is part of the Admiral Taverns group,originally lost its licence in November last year following a string of assaults, in one of which a man's skull was fractured.

The company challenged the ruling and was allowed to continue running the pub provided it complied with new regulations. However, police claim the owners have failed to clean up their act and, in an application to the council's licensing committee, recommend 'in the strongest possible terms' that the licence be revoked.

In a five-page report, licensing officer PC Lindsay Cornock outlines the pub's failings over the last 12 months, which include: toddlers being allowed to play in areas where drug dealers were known to operate, police being called at least four times to fights, one of which involved a large knife, witnesses allegedly being threatened following a serious assault, staff having no idea how to operate the CCTV system, in which only five out of eight cameras were found to be working.

PC Cornock ends the report by saying: "I have made efforts to ensure that those who are operating the premises work in partnership with police and others, but they have failed to engage. I find this particularly alarming as the incidents at the premises, their nature and those involved in those incidents are still coming to the attention of police."

A notice on the door this week said the pub was closed and advised potential buyers to contact the estate agents.
