The only reference I have found so far for this pub is in the Pigot's Directory of 1832 and 1840.

I have also found it mentioned in an article published in the Sevenoaks Chronicle and Kentish Advertiser, 23 January, 1903, that included it in a list of pubs opened in the first 25 years of the 18th century.
