Vote now for Dylan Thomas Blue Plaque at the Half Moon!

Voting has opened for this year’s winner of the Southwark Blue Plaques scheme. This year’s shortlist includes the Half Moon Public House in Herne Hill, nominated for its connection to Welsh poet and author Dylan Thomas, who drank there regularly after London Welsh rugby games at the Herne Hill Velodrome. And for its proximity to Milkwood Road, believed to have inspired the title of perhaps Dylan’s most celebrated work, ‘Under Milk Wood’.

Half Moon Planning application submitted by Fullers

Planning documents (16/AP/0167 & 16/AP/0168) for the Half Moon Pub were submitted by Fuller, Smith and Turner Plc to Southwark Council on 18 January 2016. They show that kitchen and restaurant areas to the rear of the ground floor are proposed in place of the previous live music area. The deadline for comments (Standard Consultation Expiry Date) is Thursday 11 February 2016.

Lease for Half Moon acquired by Fullers, pub to reopen in summer

A lease on the Half Moon has been acquired by the Fullers pub chain and the pub is expected to reopen in late summer. Peter Blair, who heads the Save the Half Moon Campaign and who has been working very closely with the Dulwich Society, has announced: "We will obviously continue to seek to stress the importance both of live music and of working with the local community as Fullers develop their plans."

Half Moon Pub & Lane - August 11th status

The Half Moon have thanked everyone on social media for offers to help get the pub open soon but can't say when this might be for at least another 10 days. In great part because of the building's listed status - lots of consultants (incl English Heritage) need to come out and survey the damage in order to help decide the best way to dry out. Putting the building back together will depend on working out what needs replacing. Thames Water yesterday (10th) said from its Herne Hill Baptist Church HQ that it will take at least another week to clear off repairs in Half Moon Lane.
