The Two Brewers, 1985.

Former public house, 154 Brick Lane, Spitalfields, London E1.

(83 Brick Lane before 1883)

The landlord in 1888 was William Ryder and it was a Truman's house.[1]

Situated at the north-eastern corner of Brick Lane and Buxton Street, it is where Martha Tabram and Mary Ann Connelly were reputed to have met two soldiers at 10.00pm, 6th August 1888.[2]

It was later renamed the 'Old Two Brewers'. It is no longer a pub, having reopened in 1999 as 'coffee@brick lane', first of the organic 'coffee@' chain based in London[3]. This closed down in and moved to other premises on the street in 2009. The building is currently vacant (Sept 2009).
