This pub is one in the list of my "Project 2014."

Unfortunately I haven't managed to find a picture of this pub at present but the research continues. Local knowledge, further pictures, and licensee information would be appreciated.

I will be adding the historical information when I find or are sent it, but this project is a very big one, and I do not know when or where the information will come from.

All emails are answered.

 

From the Sevenoaks Chronicle, 31 August 1852.

CITY ANNUAL LICENSING DAY.

On Saturday a special petty session was held before a full bench, consisting of eleven magistrates, for the hearing of applications for new licenses and for other business of the general annual licensing day.

....

Mr. Clark, of the "Porter Palace" St. Margaret, situate on the high road leading from Rochester to Maidstone, applied for a spirit licence for his house. The application was opposed by Mr. Lewis on behalf of Mr. Allen, of the "Royal George," and Sir H. Meux and Co., owners of two other houses in the immediate neighbourhood. The application was refused.
