The Cornucopia

 The main bar above has three draught beers. The pub also has a family plus games room with a jukebox.

Issued in 1995 mainly as the White Hart public house. In 2009 Marilyn suggested depicting the real pub for Cyber Signing 3, exclusive to APoB. Only 20 were painted as here plus a few without gold or the horn that were not on APoB. Offering ensuite bedrooms with sea views plus food, in 2007 it was the Campaign for Real Ale’s Most Improved Pub. It is in the Good Beer Guide and on Trip Advisor.

 Former Poet Laureate the late Sir John Betjeman said, “Southend is the Pier, the Pier is Southend”. In the 1800s Southend grew as a resort but with the sea over a mile away at low tide it was hard for boats to dock. A wooden pier in 1830 was followed by an iron one in 1890, with an electric railway replacing horse-drawn trams. In 1898 it was extended to serve boats at all tides and at 1.34 miles is still the world’s longest pleasure pier. This Shoreside scene in the early 1900s shows the Pier Head far out at sea. At one time you could travel to from London by boat and dance the night away there at the Royal Pavilion!

 This pub’s sign. The cornucopia or horn of plenty overflows with fruits, flowers and or nuts and is linked to the US’s Thanksgiving.
