From a popular Rush Green grocer to a pub which is fondly remembered today, we have a wide array of prized Romford haunts.

The Golden Lion has a proud history in Romford.

The Recorder previously published a story, naming it - "Romford's historic Golden Lion hotel, [a] famous town centre landmark", according to Havering Libraries.

In 1979 the pub was grade II listed after the threat of closure and today it remains operational as a Greene King establishment.
