Name Dates Comments
Wendy Williams 1970 I used to drink here as a young adult, it was a very popular place with its views onto the river, it was tucked into the corner as you approached the ferry.
Paul Vowles Late 1970s Used to be a regular when Ron & Eileen were the landlords.
Peter Pritchard 1954 My parents, Bill and Peggy Pritchard were landlords for a year in Woolwich. My sister Pam and me lived there and went to Story St School. We would jump over the back wall into the park and play after it was locked up.
We moved to Ashburton in Devon and mum and Dad ran the Railway Hotel there for 10 years.
Norma Kullar 1993-1995 My husband Ronnie Kullar was the landlord and I was the cook. My mum Maureen Weir was a barmaid. Great community pub. Sadly, Ron and Eileen (a barmaid in her 70's, full of character and so stylish) have now passed away. Many happy memories.
Marcus Jay 1987-1992 This was an absolute family favourite. Used to frequent often as a kid, after visiting the railway museum opposite. Made good friends with the musical duo “Chas n Andy” who used to play there regularly in the late 80’s. Terribly sad to see the building torn down. Between the museum and the pub, they brought a real heart and soul to that austere little forgotten corner of east London.
