The Mitre

Picture source: Stacey Harris

The Mitre was situated at 145 Woolwich High Street.
My grandparents, Sam and Hetty Porter, used to live at 3 Church Hill, Woolwich and between 1951 and 1955 having visited my grandparents on a Saturday, my parents and I would walk home from Church Hill, past St Mary’s Church to the 75 bus terminal at Woolwich power station, pausing briefly, at the Mitre Pub where the door would be pushed open so that my grandfather could come to the door to say goodnight and, I can still remember the sound of the piano, the general noise of crowded bar and the smell of stale beer, before my grandfather kissed me goodnight and we went on our way back to Charlton. Despite the stale beer smell these are still fond memories, particularly as my Grandfather died in 1955 and my grandmother in 1977.
