An accident happened on Thursday night to Mr. Boulden, landlord of the "Buffalo's Head," Chart Sutton, who was pitched out of his cart in Lower Stone-street, Maidstone, the vehicle having collided with a van. Mr. Boulden, who was shaken, was taken to the West Kent Hospital.

 

 

I am informed that the pub closed around about 2010-11 and has since been operating as a shop or cafe called Lillypie.
