Graving Dock Tavern

Picture source: Danny Robinson

The Graving Dock Tavern was situated at 353 North Woolwich Road. Publican in 1891 was Joseph Hart.
This pub and a nearby cafe (Georges Diner) closed in 2006. A graving dock was a dock used for work on ship's hulls.

This pub was present by 1867 and was rebuilt by Watney’s Brewery in 1919 as an ‘Improved Public House’ at a then huge cost of £19,900.  It was rebuilt again in 1960 as it appears in the photograph, and demolished by January 2010.
