Cripplegate pub history index

Existed from at least 1807. It was an ancient city inn and was completely destroyed by a bomb in 1940, along with St Alphage church next door.  A modern replacement pub was built on the site during the 1960s redevelopment of the Barbican area - in 1964. This pub subsequently closed in 2006 and now lies empty (2006). **
