Mr. Charles Goldsmith, beerhouse keeper, Sevenoaks, was summoned for having sold beer on Sunday, the 10th instant, during the hours of Divine service. It appeared a police constable saw a woman put a bottle through a window of defendant’s house which was afterwards returned. The woman was stopped, and about a pint of beer was found in the bottle. Defendant said she knew nothing of it. Summons dismissed.

(At present I do not know the name of this pub.)

Sevenoaks Chronicle and Kentish Advertiser, Friday 20 February 1948.


Applications by four licenses for extended facilities were all granted, but a request by Bligh Stuare Mason, on behalf of James Brown (Oxford) Ltd., for a beer, wine and spirits off license for their premises at 73a, High Street, Sevenoaks, was unsuccessful.


The only unsuccessful applicant, Bligh Stuart Mason, said his firm held a lease on the premises at 73a, High Street, Sevenoaks, and had an Excise license under which they were entitled to sell not less than 4 1/4 gallons of beer, a bottle of spirits or bottle of wine at a time. If the Magistrates granted the license the firm would be able to sell beer in smaller amounts, and half bottles of wine or spirits.

Opposition came from the "Chequers," Messrs. Uridges, Messrs. F. Page and the "White Hart," Riverhead.
