Murdoch’s “Fortress Wapping” round the corner (News International’s proprietor, Rupert Murdoch, moved his printing presses to Wapping in 1986 to smash the unions’ stranglehold on Fleet Street) kept the pub going with trade from journalists & print workers but not enough to stop the pub from closing in late 2010.
