Hollow Legs - Goldsmiths Tavern to go Gastro?

Hollow Legs in a New Cross-based food blogger - don't check out the site if you're feeling hungry , though actually just looking at it will probably make you hungry. There's a few entries on local food, including a Vietnamese supermarket on New Cross Road, Thailand restaurant, and The London Particular cafe.

On twitter Hollow Legs announced yesterday 'Citizens of New Cross! We are getting a new pub, courtesy of Capital Pubs, in the new year. Exciting'. Capital Pub Company run the Victoria (former Wishing Well) in Peckham/Bellenden, The Actress and The Bishop in East Dulwich etc. Seems that it's the Goldsmiths Tavern that's getting the gastro makeover - presumably a new name too. That place has seen it all over the years, gay pub, techno/punk/'crusty' pub, Gil Scott Heron, Mixmaster Morris, Vic Reeves... Now it looks like the foodies' turn, as most of Capital's pubs seem to have quite an emphasis on eating.
