From the Whitstable Times and Tankerton Press, Saturday 12 April 1930.

LICENSING BUSINESS.

The Court confirmed the granting of the an "on" licence granted by the Ashford Division in respect of the "Queen's Head," Charing; and an “off” beer, wine and spirit licence granted by the Alham Division in respect of the Wine Stores, 2, Canterbury Road, Lyminge,

 

 

The original "Queen's Head" as shown in the 1890s picture was knocked down in the 1920s and rebuilt so that it faced the new A20 Charing bypass.

Previous to this I am informed by Rory Kehoe that it was called the "Pig and Whistle."

I am informed that this pub is closed, as yet date unknown and the building is now being used as offices for the Council for Rural Protection.
