Benyon Arms

Picture source: Charlie Goodwin


The Benyon Arms was situated at 155 De Beauvoir Road. This pub closed in 1984 and is now in residential use.
When I knew the pub it was in the hands of an Irish landlord who was very keen on horseracing. He once said to me,’You get three things in my pub: a good pint, a clean glass and civility’. The perfect recipe! It was bought by Charles Wells and when the old landlord left the rent was raised so high that the new couple couldn’t manage. The old story. Demanding brewery accountants with no interest in local communities.
