In 1869-70 the pub was part of a consortium who were advertising their goods of selling tea in response to grocers' selling beer and wine. (Click for further details.)

 

From the Sevenoaks Chronicle and Kentish Advertiser, 10 January, 1913.

BRASTED SUCCESSFUL CLAIM BY MOTOR OWNERS.

At the Marylebone Court, Mr G H Alderson of the "Bull Inn," Brasted, sued the Great Western Railway Company for damages to a motor car. It appeared that the last August the plaintiff's chauffeur drove the car from Euston to Brasted. Coming down Charing Cross Road, near the National Gallery, one of defendant's vans collided with the car.

Mr Frank Kember, motor car works, Brasted, said the actual cost of repair was 36 3s. He had repaired the car and had been paid the bill.

Judgement was given for 31 and costs.
