Rob Roy

Above photo date unknown, also showing the "Three Cups" to the left of the "Rob Roy."

 

The Licensing Records of 1872 stated the pub held a Beer License and was owned by Edward Mason of the Waterside brewery in Maidstone.

Described as probably the most notorious thoroughfare, containing many low pubs and brothels. The "Rob Roy" and "Three Cups" were situated on either side of Queen Street. being at the foot of the Great Lines and the lowest point of Chatham, the Brook was often prone to flooding as can be seen in the photo of June 1907.

 

This pub is one in the list of my "Project 2014."

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.
