Greenwich

 

The "Peter Boat," was situated on the waterfront at the bottom of old Greenwich Church Street on either side of Garden Stairs.

It operated as what was known as "an ordinary" which was a public dinner, which one could attend on payment.

Along with the "Salutation" the "Peter Boat" can be traced back to the 17th-century. The "Peter Boat" was still operating in Greenwich Church Street from 1794 but the building shown in Rowlandson's painting shows had been replaced before the mid-19th century.

In 1863 its location was still given as Garden Stairs, which by this time had been rebuilt as a much larger flight in stone on the built-up river wall at the west end of Greenwich Pier, where they still exist today.
