Built by Cannon Brewery in 1899, architects Shoebridge and Rising. Until 2016 when West Ham United Football Club’s stadium, the Boleyn Ground, closed the pub was the centre of the universe on match days. Reopened in June 2021 after a spectacular £1.5 million restoration by Remarkable Pubs with the aim of making the interior look like it was when it first opened. New hand-crafted wooden screens have been created, complete with acid-etched and brilliant cut glass, replicating one of the original wood and glass panels in the old saloon bar. This means the original seven bar layout has been restored. The highlight is the massive coloured glass skylight that spans what once would have been a billiards room, but is now an open kitchen, servery and dining area.
