I am not certain whether this establishment operated as a beer house, but the sign suggests it could have done. However, the premises was primarily being used as a workshop for what is referred to "White Smith" goods, which are associated to a working in tin and white metals, also a finisher of iron work.

 

Kentish Gazette, 07 December 1768.

Edmund Randall, whitesmith, takes the opportunity of acquaint in the public, that he is now removed from St. Peter's to the "Sign of the Key," opposite the Kings Arms printing office, in St. Georges Street, Canterbury, where he purposes carrying on the said business in a more extensive manner.

Those gentleman who please to honour him with a continuance of their commands, may depends on a strict compliance, and a grateful acknowledgment, from the most obliged humble servant, Edmund Randall.

N.B. At the above place, the "Sign of the Key," may be had the very best Smoke-jack's; all sorts of Wheel-jack's, fit for Gentleman's use, made in the greatest perfection, and in the newest fashion; Bath-stoves made and completely finished; Coal Grates with Jack's, and Stoves of all sorts; all made and sold at the lowest prices.
