Only found one instance of this being mentioned so far. Although the name suggests that it may have been just one bar in a pub with this name, perhaps situated at the "Sun Hotel."

 

From the Whitstable Times, 31 December, 1870.

CANTERBURY POLICE COURT. MONDAY.

(Before the Mayor, Alderman Masters and Brock.)

A VIOLENT PUBLICAN.

Herbert Ellis, a publican and baker residing at Rough Common, was charged with assaulting P.C. Tomlin on Saturday night last.

Prosecutor stated that he was called in by Mr. Ratcliffe, of the “Oyster Saloon,” Sun Street, to put defendant out as he was very violent. He tried to persuade him to leave quietly, but he would not do so.

Witness then attempted to put him out, when he struck him in the mouth. Witness then got him out, when he followed him all round Sun Street and threatened to do him an injury, and struck him in the side. P.C. Rye then came up and they took defendant into custody.

Edward Ratcliffe corroborated the first part of P.C. Tomlin’s evidence.

Defendant totally denied the charge.

The Bench fined him 40s. and 6s. costs.
