Notable City of London pub Still & Star is under threat from developers.
An office block is planned for the site, meaning Still & Star's days may be numbered. As the pub isn't listed or in a conservation area, its future looks bleak.
Still & Star is thought to be unique within the City of London, as the last remaining example of a 'slum pub' — a 'licensed premises converted from a private house'.
It's also unique because there are no other Still & Star pubs in London.
Current landlord Michael Cox told Spitalfields Life the name comes from when the pub had its own 'still' for brewing (think a larger version of your GCSE physics distilling apparatus) upstairs in the hayloft above the main pub.
The 'star' refers to the Star of David, a nod to the Jewish population of Aldgate during the 19th century.
Spitalfields Life's Gentle Author and the Victorian Society are holding an event next week to celebrate the Still & Star and talk about how to stop its demolition. Join them at Still & Star from 6.30pm on 16 August.
Meanwhile, you can make your opinions about the redevelopment known on the City of London planning website.
