The Thames pub on Norway Street, Greenwich. I’ve been trying to find out what’s happening with this boarded up pub, but Greenwich council’s planning website has defeated me. The Greenwich Phantom wrote about it back in 2009 (and pointed out how difficult it is to Google), and more recently in 2014, but the last I heard, it was due for demolition and replacement with (more) flats. It’s a real shame, as – particularly given how many new developments have gone up in that corner of west Greenwich in recent years – it should make a good neighbourhood pub with plenty of potential customers on the doorstep. If you know any more about the plans leave me a comment – I’d love to hear the latest.
UPDATE 1st DEC 2016 from @greenwichhour
@neilclasper Apparently the sale fell through and it returned to the market a couple of months ago seeking offers in the region of £1.5 mil.

Has anyone got a spare £1.5m?
UPDATE 7th DEC 2016 via From The Murky Depths blog
“Developers are proposing to demolish the former Thames Inn“. How depressing.

It is a fine building and a survivor. It would be lovely refurbished and could make a pub or restaurant with accommodation!
I think it was recently up for sale but not 100% on that
