BEEHIVE COFFEE TAVERN, STREATHAM HIGH ROAD, STREATHAM COMMON

The Beehive Coffee Tavern was built in 1878/1879 by the temperance movement next to the Pied Bull pub to provide an alternative non-alcoholic attraction for the adjoining factory workers. When the coffee movement collapsed, the building became part of P. B. Cow's rubber factory. The Beehive survives today as a solicitors office and a day nursery, while people continue to quench their thirst next door at the Pied Bull as they have done for more than 250 years.Ref: SP086
