I don't believe this establishment ever held a drinks license, and I have only seen it mentioned in 1907 so far. Unfortunately also location as yet still unknown.

 

From the Dover Express, Friday 11 October 1907.

FOLKESTONE. NURSE SENT TO PENAL SERVITUDE.

Ida Mather, a middle aged trained nurse, was tried at Folkestone Quarter Session on Monday, where she pleaded guilty to three charges of theft. It was stated that her mode of procedure was to enter a house or shop by some means and gain access to rooms where jewellery was stored, and from them help herself.

On the 5th July she stole jewellery to the value of 6 7s. 6d. from the "Fernley Hotel," Folkestone, and on the same day from the dwelling house of Mr. Marcus Tyrell she decamped with jewellery worth 10 18s. 6d.

Two days before that she deprived a shop girl named Mary Newton of bracelets valued at 1 5s.

Since 1901 prisoner has been convicted on no less than fourteen different occasions for felony. Indeed she would appear to be almost a kleptomaniac for all her offences had been theft.

The recorder sent the prisoner to penal servitude for three years.
