Chester Arms, 35 Green Street, Bethnal Green E2

Bethnal Green pub history index

A listing of historical public houses, Taverns, Inns, Beer Houses and Hotels in Bethnal Green, London.

Existed from at least 1861. [Green Street is now the Western half of Roman Road]; This pub seems to have closed in the nineteenth century and the present building at this address may never have been a pub. ** Regarding the Chester Arms, I'm not sure if the building shown dates from 1881 or is a later Victorian replacement. I'm not sure if the building beyond is the original pub. Now in commercial use. *
