The Beehive

Picture source: Lee Noakes


The Beehive  was situated at 12 Robin Hood Lane. This pub was present here at the corner with Ashton Street by 1876.  Around the turn of the twentieth century it was tied to the Noakes & Co. Brewery of Bermondsey, South London.  This brewery was taken over by Courage in 1930.  The Beehive is now demolished  (see photo below) with the whole area redeveloped to provide an enlarged entrance to the Blackwall Tunnel.

Name Dates Comments
Helen Webb 1953/1958 My father was the landlord on the above dates we had come from Hungerford in Berkshire with my mother, uncle and brother. I was 6 and my brother was 11 my fathers name was Stanley Smith and Ellen Smith. We moved pubs and my parents ran the Guy Earl of Warwick pub in Chrisp street until 1962 when my mother died.
Harry (Knobby) Sprackling 1960/1967 Used this pub many many times with my father when we were both stevedores in the docks. Was a great watering hole for the dockworkers. Good beer and sandwiches and a great betting shop next door. When the juke box got going it could be heard many miles away. Great Cockney pub.
