Iron Bridge Tavern

Picture source: Stephen Harris


The Iron Bridge Tavern was situated at 477 East India Dock Road. This pub opened in 1852.  It was a Taylor Walker Brewery pub and was rebuilt on a large scale in 1934, having six separate bars and an off-licence.  In the 1970s it was run by Slim and Queenie Watts, she a well-known jazz and blues singer.  A new development in 1980 was the establishment of an in-house micro-brewery called UXB, although this was a little ahead of its time and only lasted until 1982.  In 1983, the name changed (inexplicably) to Plums Two, but the pub closed within the year.  It was for several years used as a hostel but is now awaiting redevelopment of the site.

This pub has now been demolished.
