The Neptune pub site ’17 Rupack Street, Rotherhithe. This building sits on the site of The Neptune pub that ceased trading in the early 1990'The original address was 17 Neptune Street but with the building of the Rotherhithe Tunnel in 1908 a lot of Neptune Street disappeared and the small section that remained north of the tunnel was called Rupack Street. "Rupack" means King in what is now Papua New Guinea, dates to 1783/4 when Prince Lee Boo was brought to this country by Captain Wilson.
