I also have reference to another "Red Lion" in Woolwich and another "Red Lion" at Shooters Hill, Plumstead.

Project 2014 has been started to try and identify all the pubs that are and have ever been open in Kent. I have just added this pub to that list but your help is definitely needed regarding it's history.

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

Thanks for your co-operation.
