I am informed that the pub has closed in 2014.

It has also gone under the names as follows:- "Round the Bend," "Nobody's Inn," "Looney Tunes," "Harp of Erin," "Harp." I have no idea as yet the dates of the above.

The original pub was rebuilt in 1897 when the road improvements were made.

 

Now part of Greater London, this area was indeed Kent before 1965. Hence, I will be adding information regarding this pub as and when I find or it is sent to me, but at present I'll be concentrating on the areas that are within the Kent boundary today.

Your help is appreciated, and every email is answered.
