Pubs are back serving pints to eager customers across the country, much to the relief of some, but a number of boozers are currently in a very different market, and are listed for sale.
Just a handful of establishments across south east London are currently listed for sale on Rightmove though, available to purchase for varying costs right this very moment.

Rightmove describes the listing as: “A fantastic opportunity has arisen to acquire this large former public house in South East London.” Planning permission has recently been applied for the demolition of the existing ground floor rear extension, and for the redevelopment of the land to the rear, involving the erection of a terrace of five three-bedroom houses and one four-bedroom house, plus cycle and car parking spaces. It is offered with vacant possession.
5. The Aneto Cafe

Rightmove says: “This is a great opportunity to acquire a free of tie lease for either its current use or for a restaurant and bar.”
Located in East Dulwich, south east London, the property had Peckham Rye in the east and Camberwell to the north. It is served by East Dulwich train station, and is next door to Goose Green within an affluent residential area which has undergone gentrification in recent years.
