Golden Anchor Inn 1700

Above painting circa 1700. Showing Crowley's Wharf and warehouse, looking west towards Greenwich Hospital from the projecting western corner of what is now Anchor Iron Wharf. A house with dentelled eves and a central arch or door stands immediately to the left, also facing the river. Its style suggests a date of about 1700 and by the 19th century it had become the "Golden Anchor Inn." (Maritime Museum, Greenwich.)

 

I have only found this pub listed in the Pigot's Directory of 1832 to date where it was listed under Taverns and Public Houses.

The building is long gone now, but it appears to have been where the Power Station for London Underground now stands so probably knocked down in 1906 when that was built.
