Closed Mar 1842

5 Bulwark Street

Dover

 

Previously known as the "Steamboat" and probably changed name when George Etall took over some time after 1840. However we only know for sure that it was there in 1842 because that year, George Etall the landlord, ended his life there, and that was probably the end of this pub as well.

 

From the Kentish Gazette, 8 March 1842.

DOVER. Shocking Suicide.

On Friday afternoon an inquest was held before G. T. Thompson, Esq., coroner, at the "Young Prince of Wales," (late "Steam-boat,") on the body of the landlord, Mr. George Etall, who came by his death from the effects of a concussion of the brain, caused by a pistol shot wound, committed by himself in a fit of insanity. Verdict accordingly.

 

At number 5A has been identified as the "Archliffe Fort Inn."
