Above photo, date unknown showing the former pub. Kindly supplied by John Hopperton.


Closed in 1914, but the premises later became the "Comrades Club" which closed about 2007.

I am informed by Richard King's great grand daughter, Sue Kerry that her grandfathers sister Annie King who married Harry Hinton in 1919 seem to have been licensees of the "Rose of Denmark" at some stage then the "Crown" in Peter St, Gravesend and finally the "Dickens," Denton, Gravesend. As yet I have no dates.

In the 1930s it operated for the Gravesend Social Club - it had also housed the local unemployed Committee.


Project 2014 has been started to try and identify all the pubs that are and have ever been open in Kent. I have just started to map out the pubs that exist or existed in Gravesend, but need local knowledge and photographs, old and current if you have any.

As the information is found or sent to me, including photographs, it will be shown here.

Thanks for your co-operation. Every email is answered and all information referenced to the supplier.

This page will be updated as soon as further information is found.


Gravesend Reporter, North Kent and South Essex Advertiser, Saturday 6 April 1901.

James Fleming, costermonger, of Queen Street, Gravesend, was summoned for refusing to quit the "Rose of Denmark" public house, Queen Street, on 12th May last year; also for threatening the landlord, Richard King, on the same date.

Defendant did not appear.

The summons, it seems, was issued soon after the alleged offences, but defendant left the town and was not served with it until he returned a few days ago.

Evidence having been given by Mr. King, the bench convicted and imposed a fine of 10s. 6d., or 14-days hard labour.
