At the Coach & Horses, the "Placing of the Hot Cross Bun" is observed every Good Friday. Sharp at noon, the landlord, Mr S F Stewart takes a bun and nails it to the oak beams supporting the ceilings while customers form a circle behind him; then drinks on the house. The bun will later be varnished over. This quaint ceremony was started at the Coach & Horses while Mr Bob French was licensee. He put up 15 buns, while Mr Stewart has placed ten. The Coach & Horses is Northfleets second oldest hostelry. - Black Eagle 1949
