Whelans, 13-15 Selsdon Road
Pub on Selsdon Road in South Croydon.
It opened in August 2018 after a period of closure. It had previously been known as the Baskerville photo.
Still vacant as of April 2014. Another potential sign of life had appeared in that Star Pubs & Bars made another application in April 2014 for fascia signs for "Gus O'Connors Irish Bar"; this application was refused by Croydon Council due to the use of floodlighting, but it seemed likely that an amended application would go in soon.
Still vacant as of July 2015, with a sign offering it to let and promising a "planned refurbishment" photo.
By early December 2015, it had reopened as The Baskerville. According to a member of staff, the opening day was 4 December. As of September 2016 it served food noon-10pm every day, plus breakfast 8am-noon on Fridays and Saturdays only. It had a small outdoor seating area at the side. There were several steps (with handrail) to get in. More steps inside on the way to the bar, toilets, and much of the seating (mostly single steps with no handrail).

The Baskerville closed down in October 2017. The premises were still vacant as of early December 2017, with the furniture removed but fixtures such as bar and handpumps still there; this remained the case as of late February 2018.
