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.

 

The Volunteer appears in William Mitchel's map of 1720 as ‘The Vicarage of the old village of Plumstead’. It was later rebuilt as a purpose built pub, at present date unknown.
