The Licensing Records of 1872 stated the premises held a Full License and was owned by Edward Winch of Chatham.

Up to and including 1881 the pub was addressed as number 42.

I am informed that the premises closed in the 1980 and was converted into a Chinese restaurant.

 

Local knowledge, further pictures, and licensee information would be appreciated.

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.
