West Ham United have seen a big piece of the club’s history restored and fans are loving it.
Hammers supporters still pine for Upton Park and their old matchday routines five years after leaving their beloved home of 112 years for the London Stadium.
And for many West Ham fans that meant a visit to the famous Boleyn pub on the corner of Green Street and the Barking Road.
West Ham’s famous Boleyn pub to reopen soon after £1.5m renovation
Leaving the ground and the pub behind was a bitter pill to swallow for the West Ham faithful.
But pictures of the Boleyn’s amazing West Ham themed renovation ahead of its planned reopening this month have gone down really well.
The Boleyn Tavern is due to welcome back punters this month after an 18-month closure following a £1.5m refurbishment.
During that time, independent chain Remarkable Pubs has aimed to return the historic West Ham boozer to its Victorian glory and how it would have appeared on first opening in 1899.
Stunning refurb features West Ham theme including amazing mirrors featuring Hammers greats
Among the changes are the installation of sanded floorboards and marble to replace the old red lino, a coloured glass skylight above what would have been a billiards room.
And most importantly for West Ham fans is the beautiful mirrors that adorn the pub’s stylish booths featuring Hammers legends Bobby Moore, Billy Bonds and Sir Trevor Brooking.
The mirrors can be seen below.
West Ham United could not have wished for a better send-off for their beloved Boleyn Ground.
A big piece of Hammers history restored
The Hammers brought the curtain down on 112 years of history at their beloved Upton Park with a thrilling 3-2 victory over Manchester United in 2016.
It was a fitting send off for the famous old ground as the East Londoners moved on to their new 60,000 seater home in Stratford.
