It evidently survived a lot longer than its neigbours, as it would originally have been joined to terraced houses on each end. A lot of London pubs were left standing after everything around them was demolished, and went on trading successfuly for years. Time evidently ran out eventually for this one, though.

That's too bad Tristan! I was happy to know it was being restored since it's a beautiful building.

Truman Hanbury Buxton & Co Ltd Pub is (or was?) a London brewery that had a lot of pubs so it's easy to understand the mix-up.
