The Magdala is to re-open, according to an article in the CNJ
In the meantime, the Guardian had an interesting article on the general plight of London pubs in this property developers feeding frenzy…
The Friends of the Magdala find themselves short on news, but many thanks to Thurston for this link that confirms the hearsay that the pub is being offered at an astronomical price; no wonder the Perret’s washed their hands of it.
Sounds of building work (upstairs?) are now being heard after a long hiatus.
If anyone does have anything concrete in the way of an update, please post it here, or email us.
February 2016. The Magdala is a wonderful pub so it is with great regret that we have been unable to agree terms & conditions for a long term lease with the building owner. Our doors are closed with immediate effect. A big thank you to those that have supported & visited since we opened last year. The Stag, one of our other pubs, is just round the corner towards Belsize Park tube station. Please do come & say hello, or pop in for a pint, a glass of wine, a pie, a superfood salad or a Sunday roast. Whatever works. Again, thanks for all your support.
