The old Brewery Tavern in Brook Street converted to offices
Wivenhoe Memories Collection

The Brewery Tavern on the corner of Brook St. and Paget Rd, now closed.

Behind it was the old brewery building which was built on wooden legs at the end of the pub car park that supplied the pub with beer. The brewery was an old wooden building with a peg tile roof. John Stewart has an old token which reads O.G. Green Wyvenhoe Brewery, 1penny.  Tokens were quite common and shipyard workers might receive these tokens as part of their wages.

The brewery building was demolished around 1965-6 and the Brewery Tavern closed in 1986, and was demolished some years later. The brewery beer was sold under the name of Wyvenhoe ales and stouts.

  • I had my first pint in Wivenhoe at this pub in October 1972 just after Bonnie and I had married and bought our first house here.
