About the Pub

Large one bar pub. It claims to have been the first pub to sell Porter. Built 1700 rebuilt 1876. Lunchtime snacks.

Historic Interest

Locally listed:- This striking and dominant bull-nosed corner pub stands on the apex of Great Eastern Street and Curtain Road. It is built in brick and has well restored original decorative details on the exterior of the pub including a huge sign on corner roofline. There has been a pub on the site from the 18th century which was originally called the Last. It is supposedly the first pub where Porter was sold. In 1876, Truman’s took over the pub. They pulled the Last down and rebuilt the current building as The Old Blue Last. Throughout the 1980s and '90s it was a strip club and illegal brothel. Today it is an important live music venue and has been recently refurbished, and altered internally. The exterior has been restored.
