Antic plan to open pub in former Leyton Town Hall

London based Antic Pub Company, has submitted plans to convert part of the former Leyton Town Hall site into an up-market pub. The fast expanding pub company was already using the front rooms of the building as a temporary ‘pop-up’ bar during the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Antic has now applied to run a pub at the site permanently and is approved they will make several alterations to the Grade II-listed building, including a pub sign, a new door and repairing its ceiling.

Antic operations director Max Alderman has described Waltham Forest as an up-and-coming area- a factor which impressed him. A section of the building is formally licensed as a restaurant rather than a pub, so the chain is also seeking change of use permission.

The building, which is now officially called Leyton Municipal Offices, is owned by Lee Valley Estates.
