One of east London's landmark pubs is to reopen following a £1.5million restoration.
The Boleyn Tavern in Barking Road, East Ham, is due to welcome back punters this month after an 18-month closure.
During that time, independent chain Remarkable Pubs has aimed to return the boozer to its Victorian glory and how it would have appeared on first opening in 1899.
Among the changes, a red lino floor has been replaced by sanded floorboards and marble. A coloured glass skylight - spanning what would have been a billiards room - has also been restored to its former glory.
The historic pub was a favourite of West Ham FC fans for generations before the club's move to London Stadium.
