Status: Closed and demolished
Address: 19-20 Finch Lane, EC3V (streetmap) (osm) (gmap) (bingmap) (streetview)
Dates open: [1841]-[1896]
Notes: This is listed in 1841 and 1848 Post Office directories as "Star coffee house", and in 1856 as "Ned's Chop House", in 1869 as a "refreshment rooms" and thereafter as a "wine merchant", none of which suggest it was a pub. However, it is marked on the 1875 and 1896 Ordnance Survey maps as a public house.
