Pub name Name Address Description
Boleyn Tavern 1 Barking Road East Ham E6 1PW 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. In September 2023 the pub was operating a “Beer Card” system whereby you get a beer card stamped when you buy a beer. When the card is full (9 stamps) you qualify for a free beer. This is open to all customers.
Denmark Arms 381 Barking Road East Ham E6 1LA This grade II listed building, opposite East Ham town hall, dates from about 1890 and extended in about 1900. Now an Antic pub and having their usual interior design of going back to basics. This time it shows the old layout of a multi-room bar. With a function room upstairs available, being used for Arts & Craft fairs, Vinyl fairs, Love music and shows. A popular Pub Quiz is hosted on Thursday night.
