THE Catford Bridge Tavern pub - saved from being turned into a supermarket and later voted the best in south east London - is being sold off.

Company Antic say the landlord has agreed to sell the building to another pub company.

Max Alderman from Antic said: "The building was always for sale and we were trying to buy it.

"We thought we had an agreement but the landlord has decided to sell it to someone else."

He said the pub would remain open and it would be "business as usual" for the timebeing.

The pub was closed for a period in 2012 while developers attempted to convert it into flats and shops.

But a community campaign got it reopened and, earlier this year, it was named Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) south east London pub of the year.
