Victoria Arms, 1 Easthampstead Road, Wokingham, Berkshire

At Star Lane in 1887 and before ***

Wokingham pub history index

The original house was one of a pair of late 18th century brick tenements in Easthampstead Road, then known as Star Lane. In 1847 the beer house was bought by Hewetts Brewery.
In l85l Henry Baldwin bought the adjacent property and expanded his main business, building coaches, not merely their wheels. The business flourished, but in 1861 it was sold to George Lush. George Lush did so well that within a few years he was supplying coaches to the Royal Family. The pub and the coach-building firm were run by the same family until 1907. The last licensee and coachbuilder was Frank Lush. *
