An application has been submitted for what is described as a combination of a taproom and retail outlet on Walham Grove.

The Swimming Pig, which would focus on the sale of beer, is seeking permission for an off licence at number 61 which is next door to JRK Kitchen and two down from Papa Johns.

Formerly Walts Wellness CBD & Hemp Boutique and Derek News were based at the site.

The licence would cover the sale of alcohol on the premises Mondays to Saturdays – 12:00 to 10:30pm, Sundays – 12:00 to 10pm with opening and off premises sales allow for an extra hour.

The application appears to have attracted some local opposition with 25 comments already having been made.

Hammersmith & Fulham’s Application reference is 2023/00068/LAPR.


Value Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More

This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.

Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.

We’ve always done that and won’t be changing, in fact we’d like to do more.

However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.

We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.

A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.

One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.

If you do support us in this way we’d be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.

For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you’d like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
