Bethnal Green pub history index
Existed from at least 1838. If the Dorset Arms existed by 1871, it would now be in Bethnal Green Road. This at or near the junction with Edward Street. Edward Street is latterly renamed Kerbela Street. This suggests this is the same place as the Old Crown at 182 Bethnal Green Road.
