Skinner's Arms

Status: Closed and demolished
Address: 148 Neate Street, SE5 (streetmap) (osm) (gmap) (bingmap) (streetview)
Former address: 7 Neate Street (1851)
Dates open: [1851]-[1899]
Notes: This street no longer exists (except to the east). Now on the site of Burgess Park. This is marked as a PH on the 1914 Ordnance Survey map, but there's a "blacksmith" there in the 1901 census, it's a "coffee house" in the 1911 census, and is listed as a "dining rooms" in the 1915 directory. I believe this is the "Skinner's Arms" mentioned in the 1851 and 1861 census (in 1861, the "Skinner's Arms" is a few entries along from Ides Smith who is later at 148 Neate St). The pub is also referred to by name in an 1888 Old Bailey trial, consistent with this location on the south side of Neate Street.
