White Horse

The White Horse  was situated at 9-11 Poplar High Street. This pub was established in 1690 and was the most westerly of the 25 pubs which formerly lined Poplar High Street.  In 1740 it was, scandalously, run by a Mr & Mrs Howes, both of whom were actually female.  The pub was acquired by Trumanís Brewery in 1921 and remained in their ownership until its closure and demolition in 2003.  The huge, lead pub-sign, which has a preservation order is all that remains, outside of the block of flats which now stand on the site.

Jane Taaffe   Does anyone have any pictures of the pub before it was demolished - or when it was open. My great aunt and her husband were landlords and my grandmother used to visit the pub often.
