Three Castles / Cockpit, 7 St Andrews Hill EC4 5BY

St Anns Blackfriars pub history index

This very long-established pub originally actually was a cock pit, but was re-named the Three Castles in 1849 when cock fighting was made illegal. It was rebuilt in its present form in around 1865. In relatively recent times, although pre-1984, it reverted back to the name Cockpit. ** Still open for business in 2019.
