Poole Custom house was built in 1781 in Mid Georgian style. It was destroyed by fire in 1813 and replaced exactly as originally built. The original building was itself a rebuilding of the late 18th century Red Lion Coffee House. The striking entrance steps were copied from the Guildhall. The Custom House is part of a group of buildings that are all typical of an old quayside setting including the Town Cellar and Harbour Office.
