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 in 2015 and demolished circa 2017 for housing. ***
