This be my guess, it [the pub ] be in Woolwich, not London city thereto.

"Inns and Taverns of Old London" by Henry C. Shelley has it among the Famous Southwark Inns: base of operations for Jack Cade's insurrection,
celebrated by Shakespeare in Henry VI, Part II: "Hath my sword therefore broke through London gates, that you should leave me at the White Hart in Southwark?"..."
At the same unimproved White Hart, "In the Borough," for atmospherics, "[E]arly on the morning succeeding the events narrated in the last chapter....[we find] Sam Weller, making his first appearance" in Charles Dickens' "The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club"..."In 1889, in the month of July, four hundred and thirty-nine years after it had received Jack Cade under its roof, the last timbers of the old inn were levelled to the ground." http://www.building-history.pwp.blueyonder.co.u...
