The King

Picture source: Stephen Harris


The King was situated at 50 Leather Lane. This pub was established as the King of Prussia and was present by the first decade of the nineteenth century. Like many pubs with suspiciously German-sounding names, the sign was hastily amended on the outbreak of the First World war – in this case being shortened to ‘King’. By the 1920s it was a Watney’s Brewery pub. Still extant in1940, the premises are now partly used as a dentist’s surgery and partly as a pizza bakery.
