Two brand-new Wetherspoons pubs could soon be opening their doors in south London.

The Holland Tringham pub, in Streatham High Road, is set to reopen its doors on April 30.

It originally closed on March 11 to undergo an £800,000 refurbishment of the customer area, as well as upgrades to the bar and other facilities.

The Streatham pub has been redecorated throughout, including the installation of new light fittings and a new carpet, as well as new customer toilets.

A new bar and back bar have been installed, with new glass racks, drinks dispense equipment, new glass wash and new coffee-making facilities.

A brand-new shop front, including an internal lobby, has also been added to the pub, as well as enhancements made to the outdoor rear beer garden.

The Grape and Grain, in Anerley Hill, also closed its doors in November 2017 and the site of the pub was put up for sale last year.

The chain later confirmed it had decided not to sell the site and it will be redeveloped into another Wetherspoons pub.

A planning application was initially approved by Bromley Council to extend the building of Grape and Grain in May 2019.

This included two storeys on top of the existing pub, as well as a three-storey addition on the Church Road side of the building and roof garden.

All development projects of the new build were put on hold as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

A year later on April 9, a spokesperson for Wetherspoons confirmed that it has decided not to sell the site.

It is unknown when the Grape and Grain will reopen but the chain is preparing to start discussions with the planners.
