I have just started to map out the pubs that exist or existed in Woolwich, but need local knowledge and photographs, old and current if you have any.

As the information is found or sent to me, including photographs, it will be shown here.

Thanks for your co-operation. Every email is answered and all information referenced to the supplier.

This page will be updated as soon as further information is found.


The Lost Pubs project gives the following information:- This pub closed in 1898 to become The Woolwich Distillery until 1912 to become a tailors in 1913, in later years half of the building become a carpet shop the become Cash converters, the building is currently empty under redevelopment. However, I believe the picture their page showed was of the building next door.


Kentish Mercury, Saturday 17 January 1846.

Woolage. Singular Death.

On Wednesday last an inquest was held at the "White Hart Inn," before William King, Esq., deputy-coroner, on the body of Dorothy Finden, wife of William Finden, who was found in a ditch there on the evening of Monday, the 29th ult., into which she is supposed to have fallen immediately after leaving the shop of a neighbour, where she had called. The deceased when taken out was not dead, but survived only a few hours. It was the opinion of the medical gentleman who was called in that from the appearance of the body deceased who died of apoplexy, which was probably brought on by the immersion in the water causing a determination of blood to the head. She had some time ago shewn a predisposition to that disease, and had been attended for it.

The jury accordingly returned a verdict, "Died by the visitation of God."
