Corner Pin, 2 Goswell Road, Aldersgate EC1

Aldersgate pubs history index

Existed from at least 1793. Originally called the White Hart, at 1 Goswell Street in 1856 & earlier; but changed its name to the Corner Pin between around 1862 and 1900, before reverting to the White Hart.  I don't think that the pub survived WWII, although I am not sure. On 23 April 1964 a new pub opened on this site at 2 Goswell Road, which remains open today and is called the Shakespeare -  recalling the pub of that name that used to stand 50 yards up the road at No. 44 (2006).  **
