The Closed Pubs website identifies a "British Queen" situated at 208 Woolwich Road. The road was renamed Trafalgar Road in 1912. They say the pub closed in 2011 and was converted into a betting shop. However, I have information showing it change name to "Rick's" before that happened. Further information suggests that it was previously known as the "White Hart," and probably changed to the "British Queen" some time around when Queen Victoria was made Queen of England on the 20 June 1837.

The Lost pubs website says this has also been called the "Greenwich Village" at some time during its existence, but no mention as to when exactly.
