This pub was probably established in 1847, when Silvertown Railway Station opened across the road – it was certainly here by 1855.  It was an Ind Coope Brewery pub and in around 2005 it was renamed Cundy’s (Simeon Cundy had been the licensee between 1890 and 1914).  By 2007 the pub gave every appearance of being closed and derelict, but somehow was just about still trading.  It closed in early 2008 and really was closed and derelict for a spell until demolition in early 2011

A block of flats called William Oysten Court (see below) has now been built in place of The Railway Hotel. William Oysten was the manager of this pub in the 1870s.
