The pub is found in Limehouse, Greater London, E14 7LS.

Set on the corner of a square that was supposedly the inspiration for the location of Eastenders, and a short walk from Limehouse station, this street corner pub is famous for being where the Queen Mother was photographed pulling a pint. The pub sign bears her likeness in commemoration. The interior consists of three rooms, with the rear two being relatively un-modernised. The larger front bar has undergone some renovation but still retains, albeit unused, a glass food counter display case. These were a feature of many London pubs when scotch eggs and pork pies were the main choice offered at lunchtime. Former Young's house now in private ownership.

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