    Golden Lion, High Street, Romford

    Romford pub history index

    For the History of Romford & other areas of Havering:

    Listed as far back as 1440. This building dates from the 16th and 17th centuries. Considered "a fine specimen of the old inns which abounded in the town" and "the stables behind are full of reminiscences of the days of the stage coach with its spanking team of horses before they had to give place to the more powerful "iron horse" by Tasker.

    The 1895 Mail Coach

    The back of photo states:
    'The Essex Mail London (The Plough, Bow Road) to Southend On Sea (Royal Pier Hotel) about 1895. Down journey one day, up journey the day following. Horse changes 'The Golden Lion (Peter Reynolds)

    Drivers: Peter Reynolds & Frank Webster.
    This photo is thought to have been taken in the courtyard of the Royal Pier Hotel.
    Driver Peter Reynolds. At the wheeler heads, Frank Webster. A recognisable passenger behind box seat passengers is Frank Webster foster brother Tom Osbourne. My father seems to have written a list of the boys although now mutilated. One name is recognisable 'Lusty' who would be William Lusty the turtle soup magnate. Other names partly recognisable are Hone. (Hurn). Weter(land?)'
