Eastern Hotel, 2 East India Dock Road, Limehouse E14

Limehouse index

This pub was built in 1860 and was closed and demolished in the mid-1990s. Unexpectedly, a ghostly image of the pub lives on, on the hoardings which still surround the site ** It is named the Londoner in the 1971 pub directory.

A comparative newcomer is Mr H J Hellmers, who has been at the Eastern Hotel, at the junction of West and East India Dock Roads, for the past three years. He, and his wife, formerly Isabella Mercer, have been hard at work transforming the off-licence department into a snack bar - and a very attractive job they've made of it. ***
