This as most of the time started out as a beerhouse but gained a full licence in 1789.

In 1801 Thomas Cann was fined 1 for attempting to conceal 10 'pint' pots of illegal (unstamped) measure.

The census of 1851 described this as the "Windmill Public House and Lodging House," and was till a Lodging House in 1871.

This was a tied "Fleet Brewery" pub in 1865 when the brewery was put up for auction.

Closed in 2010 and was converted for use as a funeral directors. You could say this pub is well and truly dead.

See Dartford Map 1905.
