I’d prefer to see the Magdala pub ‘traditional’

New Magdala pub landlord Dick Morgan
• IT is good that Dick Morgan, a native of Hampstead, is buying the Magdala pub and will be opening the pub again this year, (New Magdala pub landlord: I remember hearing Ruth Ellis gunshots, April 4).
Being part of Hampstead for so long makes him an ideal choice to run the pub. This is good to hear as I have, in the past, been a regular at the Magdala and it has memories for me as the last time I saw my mother before she died was in the Magdala pub.
Since it closed I have not been able to find a pub that I like anywhere near as much. I read that Mr Morgan’s plan for the Magdala is modern yet traditional. For me these are two very different things. I would prefer the pub to be traditional.
