Three Castles, 7 St Andrews Hill, St Anns Blackfriars,  London

St Anns Blackfriars pub history index

This very long-established pub originally actually was a cock pit, but was re-named the Three Castles in 1849 when cock fighting was made illegal. It was rebuilt in its present form in around 1865.
In relatively recent times, although pre-1984, it reverted back to the name Cockpit. **
