The public house on George Street which has pictures on its wall depicting Croydon “Corruption” and “Regeneration” has been subject to a multi-million-pound property deal, potentially to take advantage of an uplift in real estate values because of the council’s Compulsory Purchase Order around the Whitgift Centre.
