I drank in there once or twice. Turning left into Pier Road heading towards Brompton, the White House was on the right hand side of the road. Next pub up was the Good Intent, then the Admiralty Tavern, then the Prince of Guinea, then the Bridge House. The Shalders Arms was on the left on the corner of Richmond Road, then the Jolly Sailor opposite the Bridge House, then the Lord Exmouth. The first pub on the left after turning left onto Pier Road was, as I recall, the Britannia, later Spatts then Bar Intermission.

I think the last people to run this were Syl and Kay, after they moved from the Royal Engineers, Twydall. The pub was opposite the gasholder by the Strand and as you came down from the Clarenden to the bottom of Strand Hill, past the Green Dragon, turned left into Pier Road, it was on the left.

I remember the White House but have no photos only memories. When I met my husband we used the
White House and played for the darts teams . We spent many good times there with our friends.The pub was run by two great people Mike and Sylvia.

My mum and I have also played many a darts game here
But so many years ago lol.  Might have somewhere stashed away a pic of the team - I'll ask

Would that have been Mike Byrne (think I've spelt it correctly)?

I can't help with the White House (also known as the Rose & Crown at some points in its long history), but here is the Good Intent http://www.kenthistoryforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=9298.0
