Lion Arms , 18 Holford street, Mile End E1

Mile End Pubs history

The Red Lion, Holford Street in the 1860 license transfer. This road has now been renamed Holton Street. The whole area is still Victorian but the pub and a few houses around it have gone. It looks as though the pub was bombed on October 7th 1940. *
