Reports have revealed that Tottenham have now applied to transform the old Park Lane ticket office into a brand-new Beavertown pub, with Football London labelling the designs as ‘eye-catching’.

It is said that the club submitted a planning application to Haringey Council last week in an effort to return the building to its former use, a pub.

With Tottenham opening a huge new ticket office on the other side of the stadium, they no longer have any use for the old Park Lane building.

However, it appears that the North London club are keen to expand upon their existing deal with Beavertown, which currently sees an outlet and brewery inside the new stadium.

Reports claim that minimal work was needed to transform the old Corner Pin pub into a ticket office, meaning minimal work will be needed to transform it back again.

The application mentioned a beer garden, multiple floors for patrons, evening entertainment, a place to work in the days, and private hire for functions.

The applications reads (Football London): “The Corner Pin was originally constructed as a Public House and records show that the first resident was Elizabeth Bull Bellows, Beer House Keeper, in 1871.

“It seems that the property has been consistently used as a Public House throughout its life, with the most recent landlord noted as an L Smith, up to 1990, according to the Watney Truman publicans list.

“Tottenham Hotspur purchased the property in 2008 and, in 2010, with work increasing in intensity on the new stadium, the Corner Pin was, temporarily, re-purposed as the club’s ticket office while the new ticket hub was built to the north-west of the NDP site.

“There are two floors above ground and the intention is that these areas could both be used by patrons, with an emphasis on evening entertainment and a daytime ‘place to work’ at first floor, and private hire at second.

“In order to facilitate such use, the proposals allow for the existing staircases to be replaced and for the floor structures to be upgraded.

“The establishment is intended to be run by Beavertown Brewery who are a prominent local business, continuing their economic investment in the area.

“The proposal aims to support the growing regeneration of Tottenham, initiated by the completion of the new stadium, approved as part of the Northumberland Development Project, which sits immediately north of the application site.

“The scheme proposes an exciting new food and beverage offer, out with the stadium, and an opportunity to further augment the area as a leisure destination, in line with the council’s ambition to reactivate the High Road and continue the positive regeneration work being carried out in Tottenham.”
