Artichoke / Foresters, 93 Cambridge Road, Bethnal Green E1

Bethnal Green pub history index

Existed from at least 1809. This part of Cambridge Road / Cambridge Heath Road was earlier called Dog Row, e.g in the 1866 and 1870 license transfers. This knowledge leads to an earlier record in 1809, and 1825 may be the year in which the road name changed. In 1851 at 18 Cambridge road , and in 1861, the Artichoke is listed as at 18 Giles Row. This pub was therefore established as the Artichoke before 1825 and was altered in 1875 to become the Foresters (or Royal Foresters) Music Hall ( although some sources give the date for this change as being 1889 ). In 1893 it was rebuilt and expended and later became the New Lyric Theatre. In 1910 it was converted to a cinema which traded under various names including New Lyric and Foresters until its closure and demolition in 1960. **
