The pub is closing today and it is a shame. Some great historical Labour movement photos on its walls which I hope will be saved locally. I also hope (as rumoured) it will reopen under new ownership as a pub and restaurant but who knows. Final hope is that the staff are going to be ok?
The Weatherspoon pub in Forest Gate (The Hudson Bay) also closed a few months ago as well.
Many residents, former Councillors and Council staff would have spent a considerable amount of time in the "Millers" over the years and will miss it if it closes permanently.
In the scheme of things this is nothing that special but....
