Ind Coope & Co Ltd purchased the pub from Budden & Biggs Brewery Ltd by conveyance and assignment dated 23 March 1931. The pub held a full license. At the same time the store and Forge at the rear of the premises was also purchased as well as a cottage addresses as 26 Russell Street which did not hold a license.

 

Faversham News, Saturday 24 November 1883.

Licencing.

An application was made by Mr. Copeland of Sheerness, for the transfer of the licence of the "Sun," Sheerness, from Thomas Cook to William Charles Coke, now carrying on business at Penge.

Superintendent Mayne objected on the grounds that Mr. Coke had not yet taken possession.

The magistrate said they were satisfied as to Mr. Coke's respectability, but they should not allow the transfer till he was in possession.

The application, therefore stands adjourned.
