Reference to this pub has been found in 1860. However, I also know of a "Rose Inn" in the High Street in Whitstable, and also a "Rose in Bloom" in nearby Seasalter.

Christopher Richford suggests that this was what is now known as Tardis House and addressed as 122 Island Wall.

 

From the Kentish Chronicle, 19 May, 1860.

WHITSTABLE. CHARGE AGAINST A BEER HOUSE KEEPER.

On Saturday last, Stephen Hunt, the keeper of a beer house at Seasalter, was charged before the county justices, at St. Augustine's petty sessions, with having drawn beer before the hour of half-past 12 on Sunday morning, the 29th of April.

Police-constable Smith, K.C.C., deposed that he was passing a stable belonging to defendant, in which he saw two men, who had some money in their hands. Thinking they were going to pay for some beer, witness (who was in his private clothes) passed on as if he was going away. He then saw the defendant go into the stable, and witness immediately followed him. He asked the defendant if he had drawn any beer that morning, and he replied that he had not. Witness then looked into a manger, behind where the two men were standing, and there found a quart bottle, concealed under some straw, containing beer. In reply to witness, defendant said he knew nothing about the beer, but he thought the men had taken it there on Saturday night, having got it from the "Rose and Crown." The constable ultimately inquired at the "Rose and Crown", and was informed that the statement of the men was incorrect, and that they had just been in and requested the landlord to say that they took the beer from his house. Superintendent Walker here applied to the bench to adjourn the case for a week, in order that he might get witnesses from the "Rose and Crown."

The case was accordingly adjourned.

 

From the Kentish Chronicle, 3 November, 1860.

WHITSTABLE INQUEST.

On Wednesday, C. J. Fox, Esq., deputy coroner, held an inquest at the "Rose and Crown" public-house, touching the death of Betsy Allen. It appeared the deceased went into the house of a neighbour, Mary Pattenden, and after sitting down in a chair for a short time, complained of head-ache, and almost immediately fell out of the chair, and died in Mrs. Pattenden's arms. Mr. J. G. Williams, surgeon, deposed that the deceased had been suffering from disease of the heart, and the jury returned a verdict of "Natural death."
