The new building is post war and from 2014 it appears as well having the name "Albion" still attached to the building to have been also using the name of "Le Wouri," and advertising itself as a sports bar and specialising in African food.

According to their Facebook page the premises was advertising that they were running with new management in January 2015. Names of licensee as yet unknown. Local knowledge required please.

 

From the Kentish Gazette, 8 Februry 1846.

Woolwich.

The apprehension of a gang of burglars, well known to the police of the various divisions, took place on Thursday at Woolwich under very singular circumstances. Some three weeks since Mr. Colvill, of the "Albion Tavern," Woolwich, was robbed of nearly 170., by three man, who, under the pretence of writing a private letter in one of the rooms up-stairs, contrived to break open the drawers, and escape with the money, the whole of which, with the exception of about 30., was in sovereigns. The police used every exertion to detect the offenders, but up to yesterday not the slightest clue was obtained that could lead to their detection. Yesterday, however, it was communicated to the police that the gang intended to rob the house of Mr. Nould, of the "Powerful," Warwick-street. Four policemen were accordingly stationed in the house, and on the arrival of the parties, who were recognized by their suspicious practices, the whole party were taken into custody, together with a man named Brunton, residing in Woolwich, who was charged with inciting the rest to commit the robbery. They gave the names of John Flowers, William Johnson, and William Mayhew, of Brighton. They were remanded for further inquiries.
