Canterbury Journal, Kentish Times and Farmers' Gazette. Saturday 29 April 1843.

C. Trevor, in announcing to his friends and public that he has left the "Lion Hotel," begs to return his thanks for the support he received whilst there, and to recommend to their friendly notice his successor, Mr. R. G. Fox.

The bottled ale and Porter trade will be carried on, as usual, by C. T., at his grocery establishment, 21, High Street.

 

Robert. G. Fox, having removed from the "Falstaff Inn," St Dunstan, in succeeding Mr. C. Trevor, at the "Lion Hotel," High Street, Canterbury, earnestly solicits the support of the Gentry, his friends, and the public generally, to the above spacious and excellently fitted establishment, which has lately undergone, at a great expense, all repairs necessary to render it's convenient and comfortable, and trusts, by moderate charges, strict attention to the business, and superior articles, to merit a liberal share of their patronage.

The stables and yard, which are also well arranged, have undergone thorough repair, offering good accommodation to livery or bait horses.

R. G. F. at the same time begs to call the attention of his friends to his superior stock of wines and spirits, which he will continue to serve in any quantity, and on the same level terms as heretofore for cash.

N. B. A good ordinary every Saturday at 1:30 o'clock.
