Market Tavern

Picture source: Darkstar

The Market Tavern was situated at 141 Lewisham High Street.
This pub was closed for some years. Squatters had moved in and were featured on TV in a series about bailiffs. Squatters were evicted on more than one occasion. Eventually in 2017, the pub was reopened. When the old signage was removed the old name of Sutton's Radio was found as a dirt/ghost mark on the lintel. The pub is now trading as Suttons Radio. Apparently the pub chain found a descendant of the Sutton family to mark the opening.
