Barrier Animal Care Clinic (Thames Barrier Arms)

Barrier Animal Care Clinic (Thames Barrier Arms), Eastmoor Place, Borough of Greenwich, London SE7, 2005 • Pet care in a Noted Stout House, aka Thames Barrier Arms (apparently the sign saying “Roebuck Arms” is from a one-off appearance in the TV drama London’s Burning, which ran from 1988-2002). It still looked much the same in 2012, but the vet’s has since smartened up considerably and also has a decent website, should your pet feel poorly near the Thames Barrier.

  1. The name chnage wasn’t a re-branding exercise. The pub was used in an episode of a 90’s TV show called ‘London’s Burning.’ For the episode it was used in, they changed the name to ‘The Roebuck Arms’.
