The Artichoke

© Copyright Dr Neil Clifton and licensed for reuse under this Creative Commons Licence


 

The Artichoke was situated at 91 Stepney Way, at the junction with Sidney Street.
 
This Watney’s pub originally stood at 143 Jubilee Street, where it was established by 1869.  It remained here until at least 1951, but was subsequently rebuilt around the corner in Stepney Way when this whole area was redeveloped.  The rebuilt pub used to have a little display of photographs relating to the Sidney Street siege, which took place nearby in 1911.  The pub closed in 2001 and has stood empty and increasingly derelict ever since.

Lee Zammo 1980s-2000 Pub was a great haunt for locals,Used to go in there with my granddad when I was a kid. Great memories proper knees up...East end style... was sad to see it close down. Due to lack of drinkers in the area in the like sparrows we die out.
