It was formerly the "Walmer Castle" and the "Duchess of Kent". Permission was given in 1962 for the two to merge. The licence of the "Duchess" was forfeited and Fremlin and Mackeson shared the proceeds from the new business.


The antiquity of the buildings meant the practical rebuilding of the whole and following that it reopened as the "Elephant and Hind" in October 1964.


Changed name and serving as "Bar Ellie" in May 2002.
