the oldest pub in dover

The church is in ruins, but the pub stands - a testament to which 'spirit' the Brits hold more dear :)

It got it's name in 1818 but the building itself started life as the dwelling for the Churchwarden of the adjacent St James Church in 1365!  Yes it has probably gone through countless renovations since during the time of Edward III, but what an old building indeed.

It's also been the residence of Dover's 'ale taster' [a much coveted job I can imagine].  It's been bizarrely called 'City of Edinburgh'.

Read all about it at the Dover Society website.
