Wiltshire Brewery, 505 Hackney Road, Bethnal Green E2

Bethnal Green pub history index

Existed from at least 1856. The address is given as 1 Gwynnes Place, Hackney Road in 1861 and earlier, prior to street renumbering, though it's just listed as a brewery at that time (the 1861 census is a little unclear but it appears to say "Commercial Travr. Brewery"). The beer retailer is at 507 Hackney Road in the 1891 census, at 505 & 507 Hackney Road in 1901, and 507 Hackney Road in directories by 1910 (as number 505 is through a passage to the rear of the line of buildings on Hackney Road, which is where the brewery is marked on 19th century Ordnance Survey maps). *
This was the address of the Wiltshire Brewery. Brewing ceased in 1911, but it seems that the pub continued to operate for a number of years after that. The premises are now in mixed retail and commercial use.  **
