Portland Arms, 12 Clapton Place, Hackney

Hackney Index

The old Portland Arms was demolished some time between 1891 and 1897 and the Elephant's Head was built as a replacement in 1897. I'm not sure if the replacement pub was built on exactly the same site, but it now has the address 45 Lower Clapton Road, E5.  ***
