Pub History

This Wetherspoon pub stands in the shadow of St Mary's, one of Dover's main parish churches for more than 400 years. The church was totally rebuilt in 1843 except for the tower, which has the eight bells - which gives this pub its name.

This Wetherspoon pub is part of the former Metropole Hotel. Built at a cost of £17,000, this grandiose building opened in October 1896. It was later used as a garage, showrooms and offices. From 1929, it accommodated the Plaza cinema, which, in turn, became a bingo hall.
