    Royal Duchess, 551 - 553 Commercial Road, Mile End

    Mile End Pubs history

    It was re-built after World War II as the Royal Duchess, on a nearby site given the address 543 Commercial Road and opened Monday 16th September 1963 replacing a house of the same name next door.  I'm not sure if this name was in use before the war - it stands opposite the Royal Duke. ** Closed 2015 and demolished c. 2017 for housing. ***
