Everyone’s heard of the Birdcage pub on the infamous Columbia Road, with its beautiful tiled facade and its tales of Olde London wrapped up within its walls. In the 1600s it was the only building standing, a humble wooden shack believed to have been a public house even back then and later it became the backdrop to some of the sordid events of the gruesome Body Snatchers. Over the last few years the pub had taken a real beating and as a result had never looked more sorry for itself. In October this year Draft House gave Relic Interiors the task of resurrecting this historic pub by restoring and rethinking its interior and facade making it once again the beating heart of Columbia Road.
The doors to the Birdcage are now wide open!

“Now doubt – Now pain
Come never again
For her sight gives me sigh for sigh”
(That’s the moose we’re talking about BTW, such words for a pub would just be silly wouldn’t it?)

After a long wait and a whole load of appealing The Grafton were finally given permission to build their roof terrace, after an even longer wait we finally managed to get down and do a photoshoot! Oh yeah and then there’s the Board Room. Have a looky at what we did!
At last, photos of St James….
Its been a Rollercoaster ride but we got there in the end and from all the positive feedback received so far it was worth every bit of elbow grease. St James of Bermondsey officially opened at 11am today, phew!
Photoshoot will be happening some time in the near future. Until then, here’s the pub’s website: http://www.stjamesse16.com/
