Also known in its full term as "This Ancient Borough."

The premises became a beer house in the 19th century and was previously called the "New Inn."

Unfortunately it closed some time after 1956 to become a Chinese restaurant and I believe in 2010 it was known as the "Honeymoon Restaurant.

I am informed that the pub was still selling in the 1970s but on closure it became the "Honeymoon Restaurant."

Recent planning permission sent to the Ashford Borough Council in March 2018 has been applied to convert it back into the public house again, hopefully to open again in May 2018.

I am informed that the premises reopened as a public house again on the 13th July 2018 and is operating along the same lines as a micro and tapas bar.
