This pub was present by 1695 under the name Cocke & Oake.  It had become the Coach & Horses by 1841, at which time it was owned by Trumanís Brewery of Spitalfields.  Trumanís retained the ownership but leased the pub out, first to the Smith Garrett Brewery of Bow, and later to the Whitbread Brewery.  By the twentieth century, Trumanís were supplying the pub with its own beers.  In Victorian times the pub stood beside a now long-lost cricket ground.  Ownership passed to Scottish & Newcastle in 1995 and the pub entered a difficult trading period.  Despite its prominent position the pub kept failing and boards went up and came down on the widows until final closure came in 2007.  The pub is now looking to be in poor condition and is fire-damaged.
