The original building I am informed by Michael Norman was rebuilt in 1932.

Closed and boarded up by 2008, the premises was still like that to at least 2013. There was rumour that it was going to reopen as a Chinese restaurant, but more likely it will be demolished with the development currently taking place in the area.

See Dartford Map 1905.

 

From the Maidstone Journal and Kentish Advertiser, 2 December 1890.

Dartford. Death from burning.

On Tuesday evening and inquest was held by Mr. E. A. Cartter, at the "Plough," Lowfield Street, into the circumstances attending the death of Rosanna Cooper, aged 77, who died from the effects of burns received on 10th ult.

The deceased was sitting reading a newspaper, and the lamp exploded setting her clothes on fire, and her husband threw two or three buckets of water to put out the flames. On the following day Dr. Gillespie was called in, but the deceased never recovered and died on Sunday.

A verdict of "Accidental Death" was returned.
