Havering is home to an array of great historic pubs so here are some that readers may remember and some that are still open today.

From The Orange Tree in Hornchurch, still serving pints today but seen below in a photo taken in 1955, to The Bell & Gate Inn in Collier Row in the 1920s, we have picked pubs from distinct periods in time.

Take a look at our selection of historic Havering pubs below.
