The Cauliflower pub has not reopened since a fire in July.

Concerned residents have contacted the Recorder asking if the establishment on High Road, Ilford will permanently close.

A London Fire Brigade (LFB) spokesman said the cause of the fire was under investigation and was passed on to the Met Police.

A Met Police spokesman confirmed that officers were looking into a fire that took place on July 21 after it was referred to them on July 24.

“The investigation has concluded,” he said.

“There were no arrests.”

Redbridge Council said the licence for the venue is still active, but it has no knowledge about whether the pub will reopen.

“The licence for the sale of alcohol remains in place and was not surrendered after the reported fire at the premises,” she said.

A resident, who wishes to remain anonymous said he has been in touch with the owners and they will reopen.

“The Cauliflower informed me that they are planning to reopen soon and are working 24/7 to rewire it,” they said.

The Cauliflower has been contacted for comment.
