Historic Chiswick Pub Has Finally Closed
The Duke Of York might now be turned into flats
The Duke Of York on the corner of Fraser Street and Devonshire Road closed last week.
It is understood that planning permission is being applied for to turn it into flats.
The pub had been a popular community meeting place. It finally closed on 8 April after a number of years in which its future had been uncertain.
The Duke Of York was built in the 1830s to serve the population of Chiswick New Town, a development to house the influx of Chiswick workers. It was acquired by Fuller, Smith and Turner and rebuilt in 1927. It was sold in 2017.
The pub, with its wood panelling inside and tile exterior was designed by the architect Nowell Parr who built various pubs in west London.
