The Unity

Picture source: Thumper

The Unity was situated at 50 Eastlake Street. This pub was closed and demolished in 2004 to make way for the Drakes Circus shopping centre.
The Unity was much-used by the marine students during the 1960’s and 1970’s due to its proximity to the School of Navigation. When we received the results of our Second Mate’s exam, my class adjourned to the “Unity” to celebrate/commiserate. To my amazement, and the amazement of my Instructors, I passed at the first attempt, and at “closing time’ walked unsteadily into the night, but confidently into the future

Marcus 1992-1995 I was the assistant manager at the Unity for three years working for Hilary, the Publican. It was a great pub, with a great atmosphere.Towards the end of the week, in the evenings it got stupidly busy for its size as everyone stopped for a drink on their way into town. Great locals, great staff, great beer, great pub.
Simon Cloke 1970s I spent many evenings in the Unity and afternoons, and ...... I also worked behind the bar. It was always a good place to meet, go to the Barbican, Poly, Guildhall, where ever and meet again, and then...happy days.
