Royal Cricketers, 211 Old Ford Road, Bethnal Green E2

Bethnal Green pub history index

Until at least 1855, this pub was called the Horsford Arms and I have seen a reference from 1889 to the �Hosford Arms, known as the Royal Cricketers�. ** The 1863 license transfer refers to it as the Horsford Arms and Royal Cricketers, Old Ford road. The 1874 license transfer also refers to the Horsford Arms.
