City of London

Originally called 'The Seawall Tavern', this was a 16th Century inn. During a storm in 1775, a ship called City of London was blown ashore and collided with the inn, causing substantial damage. The ship's figurehead and timbers were used to repair the building, and the name was changed to reflect this. The pub remains a memorial to those who died in the 1775 storm, and it is well worth a visit, both for its historical interest and for its food and drink. The public house is mentioned in the Dr Syn novels.
