I am not at all convinced about this one. I have only found one instance of the pub to date and I'm not sure whether the following article makes reference to a pub called the "Newingreen Inn" or actually means a pub in Newingreen, which could be the "Royal Oak." However, I am adding it to the Hythe list till further information comes to light.

 

Whitstable Times and Herne Bay Herald, Saturday 25 November 1882.

CAPTURE OF A SUSPECTED THIEF.

A man named George Stanley, aged 42, and stopping with his wife at the "Star" lodging house, was charged before R. Furley, Esq., at the Police Court on Saturday, with committing felonies at Ashford and Sittingbourne. It appeared that the prisoner that morning entered the shop of Mr. Long, pawnbroker, and offered a number of tools in pledge, representing himself to be a mechanic. He was wearing a white apron at the time. Mr. Long being suspicious that the tools had been stolen went quietly for the police, and the man was taken to the station and locked up. Subsequently information was received from Superintendent Mayne that a man was wanted for having stolen some tools belonging to Frederick Judges, and other tools belonging to William Saunders, at Sittingbourne, on the night before. The tools corresponded in description and marks with those which the prisoner had offered in pledge. In the meantime the police remarked the resemblance of the prisoner to a man who had sold some rabbits to the ostler at the "Newingreen Inn," which were stolen from the back premises of John Smith and Thomas Giles, on the Hythe road, on the night of October 20th last. On fetching the ostler to see the prisoner, he was at once identified as the seller of the stolen rabbits.
