London historical street directory and pub history

Most of the properties on my site are now probably listed on rightmove as residential property rather than pubs, perhaps they would like to sponsor this site?

British Oak, 28 Robin Hood Lane, Poplar E14

Poplar index

60 Robinhood Lane was renumbered as 28 Robinhood Lane by 1891.  The survey of London quotes : "No. 28, the British Oak, was described as a beerhouse in 1883. It was reinstated in 1886 following a fire and was completely rebuilt in 1927 by Walker & Son of Streatham Hill."  ***
