The pub was situated on Riverside between Enderbys Wharf and Morden Wharf. It was often used as a “signing on” office for casual river workers. The pub and Hollick’s Whalf received direct hits during the blitz in 1940, destroying the building and the area was eventually taken over by Tunnel Refineries.

It has been suggested that this was previously called the "Morden Castle."

 

I am informed by Joseph Francis McClory the following:- There is to be a new pub owned by the Peckham Brewery, "Brew by Numbers" to be built on the site just along the river from Youngs new pub "Enderby  House."

At present I don't know what they will name the premises but I have it down as "New Brewhouse and Taproom."
