From the Whitstable Times and Herne Bay Herald, Saturday 13 September 1879.

The Superintendent also objected to the renewal of the license of the "White Horse Inn," Herne Bay, to Thomas Skinner, in consequence of his having permitted drunkenness to take place in his house, for winch he had been convicted, and also on several prior occasions.

Mr. Lewis, of Dover, appeared for the applicant.

Instructing Constable Page stated that on the 20th May and on two other dates he found drunken men in the house, and he had had to caution Skinner more than once.

Cross-examined by Mr. Lewis:— Mr. and Mrs. Jeffery, who lived opposite to Skinner, had complained of the conduct of the house.

Superintendent Walker said that he had received complaints from people living in the neighbourhood, who could not let their houses in consequence of the noise going on in Skinner's house from time to time, and he hoped the bench would not renew the license.

Mr. Lewis said that the house was constantly under the eye of the receiver in Chancery, Mr. Collard, with whom the applicant was under the strictest agreement not to do anything to imperil the license.

He called Mr. E. D. Collard, who stated that the property was in Chancery and he was the receiver. He had never received any complaint about the house, and he believed it was well conducted. He had known Skinner for a great many years, and he had kept the house for some time without any complaint being made against him.

The Chairman said the bench would be willing to renew the license on an assurance from Mr. Collard that he would give his special attention to the house.

This Mr. Collard undertook to do.

RE WEST AND PIGGOTT, BUILDERS, HERNE BAY.

This was another adjourned case.

William Henry Piggott stated that the "White Horse," Herne, had always been considered as his wife's, but the licence stood in his name.

The solicitor for the trustee, Mr. Davis, applied for an adjournment, as two claims had been made to the "White Horse." Ash and Co., brewers, said debtor and his wife were in the house practically as their tenants at will, and that all belonged to them, but the wife said she was Ash's tenant, and that the furniture and fittings belonged to her. It was in order to investigate this matter that he wished for an adjournment.

The examination was adjourned till the 28th June.

LICENCE EXTINCTION IN EAST KENT.

THE WHITE HORSE, HERNE BAY.

The police formally opposed the granting of the renewal of the license of the "White Horse," Herne Bay, in consequence of the back yard communication with other property.

Superintendent Jacobs stated that since the Brewster Sessions the brewers had made the alterations suggested, and he, therefore, withdrew his objection. He was satisfied with what had been done.
At the Superintendent's request the Justices allowed the objection to be withdrawn.

 

The pub closed in 1994.
