It was called the Copper Kettle in the early 70's. Downstairs they had a DJ who played what might be considered "progressive" pop music. As teenagers we used to come into Fenchurch Street on the train from Essex and walk across the bridge to the pub before moving on to the pubs in the Old Kent Rd.
Well done mate what a life saver,like you we used to get the underground from East London walk over the bridge start off in there, and then go down the old kent road ,
I was starting to doubt my memory, i suppose the copper pub was running this as a separate bar?
Well at least now there is record of the Copper Kettle on the internet, bye the way do you recall a copper kettle hanging above the door?
DJed at a few Mod/60's Soul nights there in the 90's and early 2000's, was a great little room at the back. A guy who used to drink in my old local many moons ago told me he saw Black Sabbath in there at the end of the 60's when they used to put on rock bands.
I used to live there as a child with my parents John and Margert Hope when it first opened and have very happy memories from there,we stayed for about 4 years, anyone who remembers my parents it would be nice to have a chat.
