All public house, restaurants, bars etc closed for the forseeable future from 20th March 2020, but this is a history site.
Bethnal Green pub history index
Existed from at least 1872. Charles Street later becomes part of Canrobert Street, and certainly by 1887, as can be seen from the sale agreement of the Admiral Napier in 1887. In the 1891 census, 1895 directory and 1901 census, there is only one beer retailer which is at 94 Canrobert street; the other public house being the General Canrobert at 40 Canrobert Street. I am adding these unless proven incorrect.
Residents at this address.
