The Lion Public House

A pub, a gang lord, and gangster history made

Description: On April 9th 1966 at this typical East-End back street pub in Tapp Street, 'Ronnie Kray' was drinking here when some of his spies brought him word that 'George Cornell' was in the nearby Blind Beggar.

Accompanied by henchman 'Ian Barrie' and a driver, Kray went home to get his gun and then made his way to the Blind Beggar to find Cornell.
