The Cause is Altered public house which stood just inside the old city walls, by the "Cow Gate". It was over 300 years old, but was demolished when the York Street dual carriageway was under construction as apparently it was considered to stand in the way of a pedestrian bridge that was never actually built. There are many references to and pictures of this pub on Google but I don't own any so I can't add one here.

The White Horse Inn, St James Street, Dover, UK. Ruins of Old St James Church on the right, Hubert Passage between church and pub. A plaque inside Old St James Church says, "The White Horse Inn next door to the church is said to date back to about 1300, although most of the building visible today dates from the 18th Century." The White Horse is currently run by Jeanette Harper and is a popular venue for cross-channel swimmers, many of who have signed their names on the walls and ceiling.

This building on the corner of Queen Street and Chapel Place was once the Ordnance Arms public house (until 1910, I think). I (John Latter) spent the first three years of my life here from 1951 - 1954. The attached photo shows me sitting in an armchair made by my step-father, John Charles Latter ("Jack").
