Yacht Tavern 1890

Crown and Scetre and Yacht

Above photo is taken off Corbett’s boat yard at Greenwich. The pub on the left is probably "Crown and Sceptre" and on the right the "Yacht." I believe the Curlew Rowing Club used the "Crown and Sceptre" before moving to "Trafalgar Tavern."

The pub claims to be the first pub in the west, being situated at Longtitude 00 00 00.

 

Project 2014 has been started to try and identify all the pubs that are and have ever been open in Kent. I have just added this pub to that list but your help is definitely needed regarding it's history.

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

Thanks for your co-operation.
