The pub was situated over the road from the "Gate Inn," and the building is still there but called Endeavour Cottage now. I have also seen it addressed as in Chislet.

This was a Flint's but the premises shut in 1909. Likely to have been a beer house and a casualty of the Flint's takeover by Leney's of Dover (1923) and their late subsequent merger with Fremlin's (the Leney and Fremlin families were cousins.)

There must have been an awful lot of old beer houses (minimal trade/low rent) which became surplus at about the time of the Great Depression and/or as licensees retired/died. Many brewery tied estates were "right-sized" at this time.
 

As the information is found or sent to me, including photographs, it will be shown here.

Thanks for your co-operation.
