Project 2014 has been started to try and identify all the pubs that are and have ever been open in Kent. I have just added this pub to that list but your help is definitely needed regarding it's history.

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

Thanks for your co-operation.

 

Maidstone Telegraph, Rochester and Chatham Gazette, Saturday 18th August 1860.

Thomas Hanbury, of the "Cricketers" Beer House, Matfield Green, Brenchley, was also charged with a like offence (with having his house open or for the sale of beer on Sunday morning) on the 23rd July. Mr. Simpson appeared for the defendant.

Superintendent Dance related an account of his visit to the house shortly before 12 o'clock on Sunday morning, when he found four persons in the back premises, and on the kitchen mantelpiece a pint pot partly filled with beer, which the defendant said he had drawn for man who had been there to shave him.

The Bench dismiss the case.

The defendant in the last case appealed against a poor rate made by the overseers of Brenchley, on the 23rd April last.

Mr. Simpson supported the appellant; Mr. Gorham for the correspondent.

The premises in question, which are let at an annual rental of 17 16s., had been reduced, in a recent revaluation of the parish, to 9. The present appeal was for the purpose of having the rate increased.

Mr. Cheriton, valuer, of Tunbridge, fixed the amount of rating at 12, and Mr. Montier, of Tunbridge Wells, at 11, and the Bench increased it to 12 10s.
