Only found to date in a list of licensees from a local paper of 1866.

In 1869-70 the pub was part of a consortium who were advertising their goods of selling tea in response to grocers' selling beer and wine. (Click for further details.)

 

From the Woolwich Gazette, 16 February 1894.

Blackheath Petty sessions. Transfer of licences.

Several applications were adjourned for a month, the reason in nearly every case being non compliance with the rule which requires previous evidence of a yearly tenancy to be given to the clerk. In one instance, Mr. Pook, solicitor pleaded that the delay had been unavoidable and asked to have the transfer granted subject to the production of the agreement within 24-hours, but the Bench decided to uphold their rule.

The Adjourned cases were those of the "Princess Royal," St. Paul, Deptford; the "Crown," Lee; the "Fort," Woolwich; and the "Duke of Cambridge," Lewisham. The other transfers were granted.
