Green Gate

Picture source: Stephen Harris

The Green Gate was situated at 230 Bethnal Green Road. This long-established pub was present before 1810; indeed its name suggests it was here when Bethnal Green had a rather more rural appearance than it does today.  In the twentieth century it was tied to the Taylor Walker Brewery.  It closed as a pub in 1995 and has been used ever since as a little supermarket.

Name Dates Comments
Clive Johnson 1967-1969 Would love to hear from any regulars in those days.
Ray Clark 1960s Is there any info regarding the fabulous groups that played at this pub regularly?
John Rowe 1962 The group that played was the Rondell Trio, Ron on drums, Colin on bass and Derek on organ. Butch Royal was there 7 nights a week, Lenny Peters ,Tex Withers and Suzi Quatro, and loads more, it was run by Lil Wheatley, then taken over by the twins, her sons
Micky Bell 1967-1970 A crowd of us would go there on Fridays, Saturdays & Sunday's from south London (Millwall supporters). Great times. Remember the Rondell Trio and Butch, great music. There was usually about 20 of us sometimes more, I remember drinks being passed overhead from the bar towards the stage area where we congregated.
Rick Martinez late 1960s Used to go as well from south london/Camberwell and millwall supporter with mate Duncan White. Lost touch with him though. Was an alternative Saturday night to the Temple Bar Walworth Rd SE17 which is now a Poundland store! That too had a great live band but I can't remember their name (failing memory gets us all as we get older!)
