Whitechapel index

At 35 Leman Street in 1869 and earlier; This pub was attached to the Garrick Theatre which was built in 1831 and demolished in 1891.  The pub probably also dates from 1831, although has been re-built at some point. Re-named Mr Pickwick's before 1983. In 2010, this pub was renamed from Mr Pickwick’s to the Oliver Conquest – a name chosen to reflect that of the most famous former landlord. **
