Save the Stag Pub, Battersea from Imminent DEMOLITION by Developers

Please join our petition to save The Stag pub in Battersea, Westbridge Road, SW11 from imminent demolition by developers who will build yet more 'luxurious' apartments.

Our local community has just lost one of its most important assets due to closure  – our local pub and we are potentially about to loose it for ever if it gets demolished as planned in early May this year.

For more than 200 years the Stag has been more than just a place to meet, and drink. It’s been the centre of our community; where people can find new friends, become part of the community, or simply go to find company.

If we lose our pub, we will have lost it forever. Let’s refuse to be the generation of Battersea residents that lost the local pub simply because we stood by and did nothing.

Wandsworth Council clearly understand the importance of local pubs to the community and as such have designated the Stag, along with 119 other pubs in the borough special protection from developers and demolition. The issue is that this protection can't be enforced by the council until mid August (this year) thus allowing developers time to demolish these important and historic buildings.

We want to see this building and pub restored to its former glory and preserved as a valuable community asset for the local community to use once again. As such we intend to nominate the building as a community asset so will need the community's help and support to do this - we will need to hear from you to prove its loved.

Please contact us at

We have very little time so please also post your comments below so that we can gather momentum to present to Wandsworth Council.

This building is simply too important to lose.
