Essex Arms

Picture source: Darkstar

The Essex Arms was situated at 92 Victoria Dock Road. This was a Courage pub. In 2005 it was taken over by the management of the nearby Peacock boxing gym, formerly based at the Peacock, Freemasons Road E16. It was renamed the Peacock but closed in 2008 and has since been demolished, apparently to make way for a DLR extension. The Essex Arms may have got its name from the fact that although some parts of North Woolwich were in Kent until 1889 the pub was in the Essex part.
