The planning application for this pub was refused on the 31 January 2018. The same was again submitted for change of use from a vacant shop unit (Use Class A1) to a micro pub (Use Class A4). The premises were formerly occupied by a builders/construction business. The premises will open between the hours of 12:00 - 22.45 (Monday - Friday) and 12:00 - 23:00 (Saturdays) & 12:00 - 22:45 (Sunday and Bank Holidays).

However, again the application was refused exactly one year later.

"The proposed change of use to a micropub has the potential to result in noise and disturbance to local residents and in the absence of a satisfactory acoustic assessment the proposal is contrary to Policy 98 of the Bromley Local Plan.

Following the refusal of the last planning application the applicant has commissioned an acoustic assessment. This has been assessed by the Council's Environmental Health Department and their comments are set out below under the neighbouring impact section.


The accompanying Planning Statement states that the proposed landlord of the micropub is looking to open a premises to offer local residents and the community a small, niche establishment to which to which they can enjoy locally sourced, batch drinks and refreshments.

The submitted drawings show internal alterations to the layout of the premises with approximately eleven tables and a bar area. Towards the rear lies a kitchen/snack preparation area, beer fridge and toilets. A large rear garden area is also to be utilised at the rear.

The existing premises are currently empty (having previously operated as a builders/construction company). The premises lay in-between an estate agents (No.187c) and a takeaway/restaurant (No.189). The wider local parade consists of a mixture of premises comprises of cafes, shops, mini supermarket, and dentist.

The business will sell craft beer and wine. No television or music is proposed. A limited cold food menu is proposed with a food preparation area shown towards the rear of the premises.


From the  4 January, 2019.

New micro-pub planned in Bromley.

A new micropub is planned at 187 Southborough Lane in Bromley.

Those behind the venture hope to change a retail unit into a pub at the end of a parade of shops.

Micropubs have grown in popularity greatly in recent years. They focus on real ale and high quality spirits with more limited opening times than traditional pubs. They also do not play music or have any fruit machines.

Details of exact opening times do not appear to have yet been submitted.
