Liverpool Arms

Picture source: National Brewery Heritage Trust

The Liverpool Arms was situated at Liverpool Terrace, 14 Barking Road on the junction with Silvertown Way. It was rebuilt in the 1930s, closed in 1966 and demolished in the 1970s, presumably to make way for the building of the Canning Town Flyover.

This was a large Charrington’s Brewery pub, prominent at a major junction and present here by 1886.  It seems always to have had a reputation for ‘trouble’ and is reputed (rather implausibly) to have been the pub that was the inspiration for the Animals 1964 hit with their version of The House of the Rising Sun’
