London borough: Islington

[also listed as Battle Bridge (1830/1792)]
Historical parish: Islington
Dates open: [1790]-[1953]
Owner: Bass (former)
Notes: Now a restaurant. This was presumably renamed after the reigning monarch some point after her coronation in 1837 (in the early-1850s it seems, as it's still called the "Maidenhead Tavern" in the 1851 census return). The adjoining road, York Way (formerly York Road), was earlier known as Maiden Lane, which may have been taken from the pub's original name (or vice versa).
