Now a Shepherd Neame pub their web site describes it as the following:-

"Originally built as cottages in the 16th century, the Evenhill lies on the A257 in Littlebourne - between Canterbury and Sandwich.

The comfortable, traditional Victorian bar with its oak beams and fireplaces, leads onto the Evenhill's popular extensive split-level restaurant.

The superb restaurant serves delicious home cooked meals - perfect for lunches and dinners or special occasions. Tasty bar meals are also available throughout the day.

A pleasant garden completes the picture of a typical yet pleasantly surprising Kentish pub.

Howletts Zoo Park is close by, as is the historic city of Canterbury. The coastal towns of Sandwich, Margate, Ramsgate and Broadstairs are a short drive away and there are many golf courses nearby."

Further information, hopefully to follow.

PROHIBITED HOURS.

James Newing, for whom Mr. Delasaux appeared, was summoned for keeping his public house, the "Evenhill," Littlebourne, open during prohibited hours, on Sunday morning.

A police constable in plain clothes entered the house and found several persons there with cups containing beer before then.
The landlord stated that the people were there in respect of a transaction entered into on the previous night, they were in fact engaged in housework.

A great deal of evidence pro and con, was given, and eventually the case was dismissed.
