CCTV Upgrade

Following a serious incident that occurred in our pub last week, and on the advice of the police, we’ve taken the step to upgrade our CCTV security cameras.

Our previous CCTV cameras, installed over a decade ago, unfortunately did not cover all areas of our pub. In addition to this, picture quality was not the best, and as I’m sure can be appreciated, technology has advanced significantly in the past ten years today’s available systems are much more advanced and offer far better capabilities.

With regards to the attack that took place, unfortunately limited footage was available to provide to the police as the attack itself occurred in a CCTV ‘blind spot’, although crucially we did have footage of the suspect both entering and leaving the pub, which of course has been passed over to the police to help with their investigation.

Upgrading our cameras has been on our minds for a while now, but having just experienced what we did, we’ve taken the step to completely upgrade all of our cameras, and camera system installation work has already taken place with cameras now covering the bar, all of the inside, the beer garden, the car park and the exit of the pub.

As per UK legislation, we’d like all patrons to know that they will be recorded when visiting our pub, and of course signs informing everyone of this will be visible across our premises as well.

We’ll also be taking this opportunity to install new roller shutters. The work should only take a day to complete, and we expect no disruption to our service. If anyone is looking for a good roller shutter repair company in London we highly recommend Tony and his team.

Witnesses Sought

WITNESSES are being sought by police after a very serious assault took place at our pub on Friday night.

At around 10.30pm an altercation occurred between two men, leading to a violent brawl and the victim being hospitalized with life threatening injuries.

The suspect being sought for questioning by the police is a white male, shaved head, aged between 25 to 35 years old with a beard. He is about 6-feet tall with a muscular build and he was wearing blue jeans with a black Nike hoodie.

After leaving our pub he was seen getting into a black Ford Fiesta and driving towards central London.

Whilst we have not seen him at our pub before, we’re hoping someone may recognize him, and due to the serious nature of this incident we please urge you to share this on your social media and help to identify and bring the assailant to justice.

Investigators believe that the suspect and victim did not know each other.

Currently the victim is fighting for his life and is on a life support machine.

A police cordon was in place outside the pub most of the weekend, to help police carry out forensic work, but we have now reopened and resuming business as usual.

Should you have any information please contact Bermondsey police on 101 quoting incident number 46898

Please Don’t Rain!

Please please please don’t rain on Saturday. Pretty please!

Weather permitting, our plan is to have an all-day BBQ on Satuday, with a chance to fire up the barbie and put on our famous sausages and steaks.

However…

According to the weather forecast, rain may be on the horizon.

Let’s hope the good weather we’re experiencing at the moment continues because we’ve already booked entertainment (bouncy castle for the little un’s as well as live singer and a casino bar!)

We’re scheduled to go from 1 o’clock til 8pm weather permitting.

Give us a call if you’re unsure but unless there’s a downpour, we’re hoping to go ahead, even if there’s light rain.

Famous last words hey?

Join me in praying it doesn’t rain!

Watch this space my beery friends, and don’t miss a trick.

Hope to see you there!

Brian
