Upton Park’s Boleyn pub up for sale
A favourite matchday watering hole for Hammers’ fans for decades, the Victorian-built Boleyn pub is up for sale, it has emerged.
With the huge imposing pub on Barking Road, just a free kick away from West Ham United’s stadium at Upton Park, comes 10 rooms on upper levels and three flats. The entire property is listed for sale at �395,000 for a 25 year lease.
Co-owner Raj Bas, 39, said he has put it on the market as his business partner in the Boleyn Tavern Company has decided to cash up and move to Australia.
Mr Bas currently owns The Cauliflower pub and The General in Ilford. He has had the London Heritage-awarded Boleyn for the last six years.
The move also comes a time of potential changes of fortune for the area which has already seen a number of pubs closed for economic reasons.
