Regulars hope for regal support in campaign to save pub

A group of south Londoners are contacting the new King of Holland to ask for his help to save an historic Dutch-style pub from being turned into a burger bar.

They want King Willem-Alexander to support their campaign to preserve The Dutch House pub in Eltham.

The unusual looking pub was built in the 1930s by brewery chiefs who favoured Dutch architecture and sent a team of architects over to Holland to copy building designs.

A planning application has been lodged with the local authority, the Royal Borough of Greenwich.

They have refused to comment on the application because it has n't yet been considered by their planning department.

The Dutch Embassy also declined to comment.
