Charlton: The Victoria public house (closed)
Nine months on from Stephen's TQ4178 : Victoria PH (closed), Charlton and the pub, with its carved eagle over the entrance door, still exists. Truman Hanbury and Buxton's brewery was the Black Eagle in Spitalfields, and their beers were named after it, as evidenced by the sign on the right side of the building. The brewery was one of the oldest in London, having been acquired by Joseph Truman in 1698. The Truman Hanbury and Buxton name eventually disappeared when they merged with Watney Mann in 1974, the latter having been bought themselves by Grand Metropolitan Hotels in 1972.

The pub, which is at 757 Woolwich Road, is under threat but it is to be hoped that it can be incorporated into whatever is subsequently built on the site.
