Crown & Greyhound, Dulwich: Reopening Date

Please see below an e-mail exchange re the subject matter:

From: Greg Stern (Mitchells & Butlers); Monday 8 August 2016

Dear Mr. Thomas,

Your email below has been passed on to me from our guest care team. I am the area manager for this business and since I was made aware that I would be taking on this business in February this year the reopening date has been at the centre of much discussion and change.

Although I was not privy to these discussions first hand I know that the two stake holders, Dulwich Estates and M&B struggled to agree over some large details which caused a delay to the plans.

We do now have a firm date for reopening which is 7th November. I expect that for you, as for me, this is not as soon as you were hoping but there is nothing that can be done about that at this point.

I am keen to publicise this opening date. Do you have any recommendations as to the best way to circulate the news as a resident of Dulwich?

Please let me know if there’s anything else that I can help you with.



Dear Sirs,

As a long-time resident of Dulwich and patron of the subject pub I am frustrated by a total lack of information regarding any possible re-opening date for either the bars/restaurant and/or the hotel facilities.  The dearth of information is a constant topic of conversation in the area so I was wondering whether you could enlighten me on your plans please?

Yours truly.

Peter Thomas
