    There is a pub at 94 Goldsmiths Row now called The Albion,owned by a Baggies fan.Popular real ale pub,sadly unvisited by me.

    I would be very interested if anyone knows of these pubs or has even been in them.
    Hi Al - as others have mentioned, the Duke of Sussex is now called The Albion and is probably unrecognisable from your visit, given that it is now packed full of football memorabilia. It's a pretty decent pub and was in the 2012 GBG.

    I'm not sure if your tour of the East End ventured into Mile End/Bow/Wapping/Limehouse, but if so, the following blog posts might be of interest.

    Of course, another aspect of any planned trip to East London is the beer prices! There is no such thing as a cooking beer down here, as unless it's a Spoons or the King William IV you will get fleeced.

    I couldn't believe it when I recently got charged £4.20 for a 4.4% beer in E5, brewed less than half a mile away that wasn't even clear. I really wished I had walked off without paying.

    I liked looking through those Pubsignman,there was a nice picture of the Star and Garter in Whitechapel which was a Bass Charrington house when me and the wife went in it on 22 February 1986.

    I have done lots of pubs in Bethanl Green and Whitechapel,plus a few in Mile End and Wapping,i have also done most proper old pubs in Spitalfields and Aldgate these were done more recently around 2008,i have never been to Limehouse though.

    Here are a few more pubs that i could not find on the site,there are loads of photos of shops and the like that i have been in when they were pubs that are listed on the site.

    Apple and Pears i think on or near Liverpool Street station
    Aunt Sally, Watney tied house not far from Mile End tube
    Crystal Tavern, Taylor Walker tied house, 25 burdett road Mile End
    Prince of Wales, Ben Truman tied house, 2 grove road Mile End

    These pubs were visited on 19 November 1983 with a gang of lads and girls,we did many more pubs but these are listed on the site.

    London Hospital Tavern, Taylor Walker tied house, 176 whitechapel road, Pub visited 22 February 1986 with my wife.

    I hope some members remember some of these pubs

    Cheers Alan

    Prince of Wales is now a restaurant called Greedy Cow.

    Thanks for the quick reply Strongers,
    That Apple and Pears is not the one we went in,we hired a bus out for the day for a trip to London, once there we went our different ways me and my best mate went to Brixton for a dinner session,we then made arrangments to meet at Liverpool Street station,i dont know why there but that is where we met,we then went in the Apple and Pears and some of the braver lads and Gals decided to hit the East End,we went on the tube and finally decided to get off at Mile End where we did a good few pubs.

    Any ideas about the London Hospital Tavern.

    Cheers Alan

    There used to be an Apples And Pears on the Bishopsgate side of Liverpool Street Station. I remember it as I vaguely recall it sold something drinkable. It would have been demolished when the Station was redeveloped.
