Another one bites the dust

Yet another of the local businesses left behind when West Ham United moved lock, stock and barrel to Stratford two years ago is set to close.

The owners of the Denmark Arms, situated a few hundred yards from West Ham's former Boleyn Ground home in the Barking Road is closing this week after the pub's income collapsed following the club's move.

A message published on Facebook by the pub's owners confirmed the bad news. "Itís official. we are closing," read the post. "We would like to thank all for your custom and support whilst we have been at the Denmark Arms pub.

"Our last day of trading will be Monday 30 July 2018."

The Denmark is just the latest in a long line of businesses that have gone under since the club moved from Green Street, United's home of 116 years prior to the 2016 relocation.

Other famous names that no longer trade in the area include the Green Man, Earl of Wakefield and Central public houses plus Duncan's and Nathan's pie and mash shops, the latter os which closed earlier this year after more than 80 years of trading.

And the Boleyn pub, perhaps the most famous watering hole to be associated with West Ham was also sold in May, acquired by the Remarkable Pubs group, but is expected to return after a makeover.
