What Pub suggests that this used to be called the "So Ho" but to date I have seen no reference to it being called that. Local knowledge required.

As the information is found or sent to me, including photographs, it will be shown here.

Thanks for your co-operation.

Fire at the See-Ho, Pear Tree Lane, Shorne

A small fire broke out at a popular pub overnight.

Firefighters were called to the "See-Ho," in Pear Tree Lane, Shorne, near Gravesend, just after 12.30am today.

The fire was thankfully small, contained to private accommodation and has not affected opening. It is due to open at midday as usual.

Crews, wearing breathing apparatus, discovered a small fire on the stairs. They put it out and cleared smoke from the property with a strong fan.

They then checked the fire was fully out using a thermal imaging camera.

The pub's occupants had been alerted by an automatic fire alarm and had managed to get out by the time crews arrived.

They were given oxygen therapy after breathing in smoke.

The fire is believed to have been caused by heat from some laundry that had been recently tumble dried.

Fire crews left just before 1.30am.

Hi, I have a small trophy with the inscription SBCHC, W J STANLEY, 1926-1927, See-Ho.

See Ho cup 1926

Underneath the cup there are markings including the number 4443, I understood my relatives Mr and Mrs Stanley ran this pub.

Many thanks,
