Found in 1899 as a beer house, I believe the pub closed in 1989 and is now a private residence.

I have also seen this addressed as being in Milton Regis.

THREE LICENCE RENEWALS REFUSED.

The renewal of the licences of the "Highlanders," Minster; the "Ordnance Arms," Queenborough; the "Angel," Rainham; the "Chalk Tavern," Milton; and "Rainham Mark" beerhouse were opposed by the police. The Bench refused the renewal of the licences of the "Highlanders," the "Ordnance Arms," and the "Rainham Mark," but granted renewals to the "Chalk Tavern" and the "Angel Inn."
