Elephant, 119 Fenchurch Street, All Hallows Staining, City of London EC3

All Hallows Staining pub history index

The foundation of the Elephant pre-dates the Great Fire of 1666. It has been re-built on several occasions and now exists as a ground floor and basement bar within a large, modern office block. This pub was rebuilt in its present form in 1957. **

You need to see my London Taverns description of the Old Elephant, and the deadpubs listing for much more early detail querying some of the early hypothesis.
