Kentish Gazette, 27 March 1849.

FREEHOLD PUBLIC HOUSE, STROOD. KENT,

MESSRS. HOGGART, NORTON, AND OAKLEY Have received Instructions TO OFFER FOR SALE, AT the "Sun," Chatham, on MONDAY. April 30, at One for Two o'clock.

The "CANAL, PUBLIC HOUSE, situate in the Canal Road, Stood, near the South-Eastern Railway Station, and opposite the river, which from the alteration immediately about to take place in the creation of the new bridge with ultimately became exceedingly valuable wharf property, and tend much to increase the present lucrative business.

The house contains good accommodation, with tea gardens in front, and with private access to the field in the rear, where the fair is held. It is at present under lease, a few years of which are unexpired, to Mr. Roffway, at a low rental of 50 per annum.

May be viewed by permission of the tenant, and particulars had of John Billing, Esq., solicitor, King-street, Cheapside; Sun, Chatham; and of Messrs. Hoggart, Norton, and Oakley, Old Broad street, Royal Exchange.

 

 

I believe this was called the "Canal Tavern" before the railroads passed by and dropped the word "Canal" to become the "Railway Tavern" probably just after sale in 1849.
