Three Kingdoms, 79 Lower Thames St, St Dunstan in East, City of London

St Dunstan in the East pub history index

Between 1851 and 1855 this pub was trading as the Custom House Stores. There is a mix of similarly named Custom House's in Lower Thames Street until these are unravelled properly. The pub closed in around 1961 and the licence was transferred to the newly-built Mermaid at 64 Queen Victoria Street, EC4. The Mermaid has now been renamed the Sea Horse. Meanwhile the old Three Kingdoms is now demolished. **
