My father Arthur Thomas Hopkins had this pub around 1960-1962. *
I was born here and remember there was a fish and chip shop very close. It was a fine pub, I think 3 storeys. My father found some old oil paintings in the attic. The first one was a nude and my mother ( Irish Catholic) made him throw them all out. Often wonder if they were any good!
Trade was initially poor , he only sold 2 bottles of Guinness one day. Dad was warned of a heavy drinking , good natured Irishman who could be a bit of a handful. and known to all as Dooley. He eventually turned up and Dad said he was great for trade and a good chap. He used to regularly shout out “Yippee!” !!!
Dad then took The Congleton, in Maxey road, plumstead guess 1962-66, then the Dartmouth arms, Forest hill 1966-68 , and eventually The Ship, Puddle dock lane, Wilmington from 1970-84.
