The Licensing Records of 1872 stated the pub held a Full License and was owned by Charles Withecom of Fair Row, Chatham.

Not sure why or when, but the pub by 2008 is apparently called the "Portland Vase".

 

Chatham News, Friday 21 April 1939.

Alterations to licensed premises.

The Chatham Bench, on Monday, approved of alterations to the  "Portland Arms," Chatham.

 

Unfortunately closed by 2015 and converted into a Cost Cutter Store.

I will be adding the historical information when I find or are sent it, but this project is a very big one, and I do not know when or where the information will come from.

All emails are answered.
