The pub's name stemmed from the largest gun ever made at the Woolwich Arsenal.

I am informed that this pub is unfortunately now closed and in April 2009 the front was ripped out and it's now operating as a shop.

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.
