A pub with this sign traded from Seven Star Street and certainly, in 1805, Simmonds was associated with it, also Prescott in 1832. The main attraction apart from the beer was cock fighting. There was another "Shipwright's Arms" at 12 Strond Street.

Inquest held at the Shipwrights Arms, Seven Star Street Flats, Dover.
