Now a Tesco's Metro with the upper floors being converted to flats. Probably the kindest thing that could be done to the place.

Interesting that my previous post about the cause of its demise and loss of license has been removed.

I remember this as an excellent pub originally called the Station Hotel. I used to go in there religiously every Friday after spending an evening learning to ballroom dance at the Court School of dancing (above the old cinema) in Bellegrove road, both of which have now gone. The Station Hotel then changed to the Station Pub, this was even better. I remember going in there on my 21st birthday and drinking Hurricane Hattie cocktails - never knew what they were made of but were fantastic, best cocktail I have ever tasted. The decor was stylish and classy, sort of piano bar. I remember when seeing it as the Inferno years later how horrified I was at what was once a lovely pub.

Thank you for informing Zaphod. There were always dodgy types to be found in Infernos, but am surprised all the same - especially about the manager being arrested! If I am thinking of the correct person, he seemed okay. Obviously not then!

I actually hope it doesn't reopen. Various manager tried and failed and the trend would only continue.

I intended to pay a visit here, to Infernoís, last Thursday (6th March) but it was closed and appeared boarded up. If it isnít a refurbishment and it is indeed, a goner, then it is of little surprise. Since the demise of the supposedly troublesome Moon and Sixpence, this large pub has tried through a succession of management changes to make something of itself and inevitably failed each time. Inspired ideas (films on Thursdays and live bands on Sundays) ultimately failed to elevate this establishment beyond its murky past and too often than not, this pub was just plain empty. A cheap Wetherspoon down the road and a plethora of boozers in neighbouring Bexleyheath, didnít/havenít helped its chances. I had some fun times here, but like life itself, it all has to end some day.

Infernos used to be a great pub a couple of years back. It had a poor reputation, but was tidied up and given a new leash of life. The then manager (the first of two when I was a regular) managed to dispose of a large proportion of the then, troublesome locals, get some decent music in the jukebox and introduced live bands on a Sunday. He was mysteriously given his marching orders before the second manager was installed. The most part things remained how they were and the introduction of showing a film on a Thursday evening was a fine idea, but I think things slowly went downhill. He was gone by the end of 2005 I think and I ceased to be a regular around the same time. A third (this time female) manager then joined the scene and I really havenít been impressed on the few visits Iíve made over the past couple of years. It was good hereÖ for a while.

A final point Ė Infernos used to be called The New Moon and Sixpence and is still listed on this site in that name as well.
