13/10017 Number 27,
The Havelock Public House

II

Public house. Probably c1857, as General Havelock died in that year and the street was renamed as a result, but refitted in 1889-90 by a local architect Ward with murals probably by Royal Doulton artists. Italianate style. Stuccoed with slate roof Four storeys; two windows. Overhanging eaves cornice with decorated brackets. Sashes with verticals only set in eared architraves with cornices to second floor and brackets to first floor. Continuous flower guard with anthemion motif below first floor windows. Late C19 pubfront has elliptical bowed centre with etched glass flanked by tiled pilasters and on the right hand sidt there is a fine Royal Doulton panel depicting General Havelock with the name "Alfred T S Carter, 290, Brockley Road London SE". The rear elevation is similar but has one tripartite window, panels with roundels between first and second floors and late C20 bar front. The interior contains three Royal Doulton panels depicting Hastings Castle, the Battle of Hastings and a sea engagement with the Conqueror boarding a French pirate ship, mahogany bar fitting with barleytwist columns, boarded ceiling with lozenge-shaped ribs and black and white tiled floor. Carter (later Poole Pottery) may have commissioned the murals. They are thought to be the work of either John Eyre or John H McClennan.
