About The Blind Beggar

Restaurant Description

Open since 1894, this pub is rich in London history. Bobby Moore was, briefly, the landlord in 1966, but had an England World Cup team to captain. While the England players were busy winning, an entirely different score was settled at The Blind Beggar; news reached the Kray twins that rival gang member George Cornell was holding court at the Beggar. Cornell had committed the crime of calling Ronnie Kray a ‘big fat poof’ and, to the tune of ‘The Sun Ain’t Gonna Shine’ on the jukebox, Ronnie strutted in. ‘Well, well, look who’s here,’ he said, before dispatching Cornell with a single shot to the head. Nowadays, East End hospitality runs to a shot or two of Bell’s, a pint of London Pride or Old Speckled Hen, and a Banger Bros hot dog at this reasonably priced, family-friendly affair.
