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.


The "Bugle Horn," was designated an asset of community value in June 2015, though that status expired in June 2020.


Kentish Gazette, Tuesday 28 February 1860.

Charlton Rifle Volunteers.

A meeting which was attended by 57 effective members of the newly-formed rifle corps in Charlton, was held on Monday week, at the "Bugle Horn," when a letter was read from the lord-lieutenant, containing her Majesty's gracious acceptance of the proffered service, and stating that he had recommended the following gentlemen to receive commissions as officers of the corps; Colonel George Walkup Congden, late Royal Marines, for captain; George Hall Graham, Esq., for Lieutenant; and William Caryil, Esq., for ensign.

A vote of thanks was passed to the Lord Lieutenant for his speedy and courteous attention to the corps. The whole proceedings exhibited the unanimous determination of the corps to carry on the project with the greatest possible vigour.

The executive have, we believe, succeeded in making arrangements by which a band will be attached to the corpse, the services of the Woolwich Temperance Band having been engaged under favourable conditions.


From the Woolwich Gazette, Friday 14 November 1890.
