Boars Head, 66 Fleet street, St Dunstan in West EC4

St Dunstan in West pub history Index

The Access to Archives site has just suggested that the Boars Head existed as early as 1441-42, i.e. "John, bishop of Bath and Wells, to grant a messuage called the Boar's Head next to the Bolt-in-Tun in Fleet Street in the parish of St. Dunstan-in-the-West to the prior and convent of the Carmelites in Fleet Street. London." in Henry V1 20.

BOAR'S HEAD, No. 66, Fleet Street, is dated 1616, but I find the " Boar's Head" Alley is mentioned at least eighty years previous. In 1775, "Sarah Fortescue, a widow, victuallar at the " Boar's Head Ale House," was presented for keeping a disorderly house. - Memorials of Temple Bar 1870

Mooney’s was founded as a company in 1888, it acquired the Boar’s Head, which was actually its fourth pub in London, in 1895, and the pub’s name after that was the Irish House, which was what Mooney’s called most of its pubs in the UK (there was one near London Bridge called Mooney’s Dublin House) and according to Kelly’s directories the pub in Fleet Street never became the Tipperary until 1968. ***
