The Black Griffin
The Black Griffin
Until recently the wonderfully named Black Griffin was lumbered with a corporate brewery chain Hobgoblin identity. It looked like this TR1458 : The Hobgoblin Public House, Canterbury
The griffin has now resurfaced and with the nameboard gone you can see the remains of the old Rigdens Brewery livery.
Rigdens of Faversham merged with George Beer of Canterbury and subsequently ended up as part of Whitbreads which did them no good at all, closing in 1990.
