King George, 25 Burr Street, Lower East Smithfield, E1

Aldgate pub history index

Existed from at least 1829. Sometimes listed as 25 Nightingale Lane, and aka Ship King George. The 1827 entry is for the Kings Arms, and I am presuming these are the same until proven otherwise.

Residents at this address.
