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

In the 1903 directory the address was given as 29 Chatham Hill.

The pub is now unfortunately closed and has become a Domino's Pizza House.

During the 1970s I am told it was run by a German who previously ran a club in Dartford.


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.


Reading Mercury, Monday 19th February 1776.

Yesterday morning a man was found on Chatham Hill, with a pistol line by his face, and all the other part of his head, from his lower jaw, blown entirely 2 pieces, so bad that it cannot be discovered what age he maybe semi-: he appears he speaks his appearance he speaks that of a gentleman. He was conveyed to the "White Horse" at Chatham Hill, and every method is taken to trace out the particulars.
