Beehive, Southwark

Charlie Wright's International Bar, Hoxton

The Porters Lodge, Monument

The Porters Lodge closed in 2014 and was demolished by April 2015.

Moby Dick, Chadwell Heath

More of a carvery than a pub.

Rendezvous, Romford

The Chadwell Arms became Rendezvous and the Neuvo bar and grill. It closed in 2014 and has since been bought by developers so I presume it will be turned into housing.

The Joker, Ilford

The Joker closed in January 2015 and has since been demolished. I understand that a hotel will be built on the site and this may contain a bar.

The Elephant, Fenchurch Street

The Elephant closed in October 2014 as the block it is part of is to be demolished. Perhaps Young's lack of investment was due to the fact that they knew the pub would be closing.

The Victoria Cross, Manor Park

Victoria Cross has reopened. No real ale.

14 Feb 2014 15:55

Ruskin has reopened. London Pride £2.50 per pint.

The Joker, Ilford

According to a report in a local newspaper the Joker has now reopened (Feb 2014).

However an application for planning permission to turn it into a hotel has been made. If it goes through it is likely that the Joker will cease to operate as a pub
in 2015.

Crazybaldman's prediction was correct. The pub is now flats. I have uploaded a photo taken in June 2013.

Now a Costcutter.

The Joker, Ilford

The Joker was raided by the police in October 2013 and about 250 cannabis plants were found on the premesis. As far as I am aware the licence has now been revoked.

Alfreds Head, Hainault

The Alfreds Head is now the Hyneholt (A 13th century spelling of Hainault).
I haven't been inside it yet but I attach a picture taken on 6/12/2012.

The Captain Cook, Barking

There is a factual error in wirraldrinker's comments of 27 Nov 2009. The Captain Cook was not renamed the Victoria. They are separate pubs although just a couple of minutes apart.
The Captain Cook closed in 2009 and was demolished in 2010. The Victoria is still there in Axe Street.

The Manor House, Chigwell

I went past on the bus a couple of weeks ago. The pub/bar is now closed. There is a board up advertising it for let, retail or restaurant use.

The Old Maypole, Ilford

The Old Maypole was open when I went past on Monday 9 December 2013.
It is a Sizzling pub and three real ales are available. I didn't have time to go in and check on it but it seems OK.
I believe that the two previous comments reporting it closed have confused this pub with the Maypole in Chigwell a couple of miles away.
