Pubgoers can call in on a brand new pub when it opens its doors tomorrow after more than a year of planning.

Having opened as a well-liked pop-up venue during the Olympics and for a weekend in June, the Leyton Technical pub’s full-time grand opening is tomorrow evening.

The fledgling establishment doubles pub chain Antic’s presence in the area after their plans to buy The Chequers in Walthamstow High Street, what was then their second pub in the borough, fell through and they moved out.

Leytonstone local and manager Sean Cook ran the pub during the Olympics and previously managed The Chequers and The Red Lion in Leytonstone High Road, also run by Antic.

He said he wanted to make the most of the “good local vibe and atmosphere” so abundant at the pub during the Games.

“When everyone came together to watch the Olympics a lot of people asked for it to be permanent,” he said.

“It’s a listed building so planning took a while but the permanent pub’s been in the planning stage since then.”

The Grade II listed building suited the pub’s “country mansion” and “regal” style, he said, with high ceilings and ornate detail in the ceilings.

Formerly Leyton Town Hall, plans to change the use of the building to a pub, install a pub sign and a new door and repair the ceiling were approved in November last year.

Permission for extraction in the kitchen is still pending but Mr Cook said he hopes “nicely priced good traditional English food” would be available in around a month.

The pub will open in stages with several rooms beyond the large front room, which will open tomorrow, to open as they are refurbished.

Mr Cook said he wants the pub to become a community hub and that visitors and locals are welcome to bring ideas for its development to him.

Doors open tomorrow at 7pm.
