Obviously in existence before 1791 and the only thing I know about this is what has been found in the Kentish Gazette of 1791. Now also found as early as 1741.

Also found, reference to a licensee called Harvey at a pub with the same name in 1805. Another "Carpenter's Arms" was in Queen Street.

Although not named as the "Carpenter's Arms" the Dover Telegraph of 17 November 1838, p.1 col.3 makes mention of a Mr. John Collier, beer shop in Hart's Row - occupier of premises to be sold by auction. Was this the same and end of the above I wonder?

 

From the Kentish Post, June 6-10, 1741. Kindly sent from Alec Hasenson.

Sale of Barley at the Sign of the "Carpenter's Arms" in Dover, 12th June.

 

From the Kentish Gazette, May 13 to 17, 1791. Kindly sent from Alec Hasenson.

A Leasehold Messuage or Tenement (some time since a public house, and known by the sign of the Carpenter's Arms).............. situated in a street at the Pier in Dover called Hart's Row, and now in the occupation of Mrs Barron.
