'My local pub loving father could never have imagined that the shout of ‘last orders’ heard all over London would come to mean exactly that, bringing to a close a significant part of English hospitality and culture. 

It should be remembered how vital they once were to the social fabric of especially working class suburbs. For mainly male adults in post war period of the 1940’s and 1950’s, they offered more than a place of companionship, entertainment and beanos.  They were a voice to what was happening in the neighbourhood, where contacts were made and broadened with the hope and promise of opportunities that would improve the life of your family. An ‘undernet’ where the cost of a steady stream of various black markets goods would match the contents of your back pocket. Above all, it was a comfort to know that the local was always there for you. Until one day it wasn’t’. 

(Excerpt from ‘REMNANTS OF YESTERDAY. Recollections of the East End’ by Bob Roberts).

Help our community project to archive these lost pubs before they are forgotten for ever. If you know of a pub which has closed at any time in the past, please submit it, together with any anecdotes, historical information or photographs that you might have. Pubs do re-open from time to time, so if you see one on the site that is open please let us know.
