Almost nothing at present is known about this premises, and I don't even know whether it held a drinks license, however, reference has been found from the following passages taken from the Whitstable Times of 1902.

 

From the Whitstable Times, 22 February, 1902.

CANTERBURY POLICE COURT.

Before Mr. D. Amos (in the chair), Mr. J. Cox, Mr. T. Wacher, Mr. W. K. Curtis, and Mr. H. G. Sadler.

THE NORTH LANE HOTEL.

Mr. A. K. Mowll appeared on behalf of Mr. E. Fairbrass, the defendant in the case heard on the previous Friday, to ask the Magistrates to state a case for the consideration of the High Court in the following terms, viz., that neither under Section 158 nor under bye-law 33 was A. C. Turley a person duly employed under the Act, and that even if he were so employed, proceedings were out of time, because proceedings must be taken either within six months from the date of the alleged offence or of the completion of the building, or after the by-law had been broken.

After a discussion between Mr. Mowll and Mr. B. M. Mercer, the Magistrates' Clerk. The Magistrates granted Mr. Mowll’s request.

 

From the Whitstable Times, 22 February, 1902.

THE NORTH LANE HOTEL.

Alderman Kennett asked if anything farther had been heard about the “Continental Hotel.”

The Town Clerk said he understood Mr. Fairbrass was applying to the Magistrates to state a case. He had received a letter from Mr. Fairbrass asking if the Council would allow him to use the place as a store in future, as it always had been used. He (the Town Clerk) had brought the letter before the Committee, and he had written in reply stating that the Committee could not accede to Mr. Fairbrass’ request.
