St Dunstan in West pub history Index

Often listed as 1 Fetter lane in Trade Directories. A pub is said to have been present on this site since 1518. It was re-named Peele’s Coffee House in 1715.
Its Victorian successor was described in 1973 as having “been closed for some time” and was demolished soon after. **

PEELE'S,” No. 177 and 178, Fleet Street, once a coffee house, but now a tavern, dates back a century and a half. A portrait of Dr. Johnson, said to be by Sir Joshua Reynolds, was painted on the key stone of the mantel piece. Peele’s was long noted for its files of newspapers, and of late years as the Central Committee Room of the Society for Repealing the Paper Duty, in 1861 ; a work which, under the presidency of the Right Honorable T. Milner Gibson, and the Chairmanship of Mr. John Cassell, at last was crowned with success.
