About the Oliver Conquest

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Aldgate, Central London, E1 8EU.

In Leman Street, this pub was probably established in 1831 as the Garrick Tavern and was associated with the Garrick Theatre next door. It was rebuilt after an 1846 fire. By the 1890s the pub was tied to West’s Brewery of Hackney, later passing to Truman’s and then to Thorley Taverns. By 1983 it had been renamed Mr Pickwick’s and for many years maintained a Dickensian theme. The pub’s licence was revoked by Tower Hamlets Council in 2010 and later that year it re-opened as the Oliver Conquest, following much refurbishment. Benjamin Oliver Conquest was a theatre impresario and licensee of this pub in the 1830s and 1840s. The pub is today primarily a shrine to Gin, with hundreds of varieties of Mother’s Ruin to select from, and also houses a satisfying collection of old photos of musicians and singers. Plenty of wood panelling and some outside tables at the front. From 2019 operated by Tidalwave Bars as a tenancy.

We have visited this pub once, seen 2 different beers and tried 1 of them.
