131 High Street

Borough

South Eastern Gazette, Tuesday 3 May 1853.

Half Moon Inn, 131, High Street, Borough.

Near to the Brighton and Dover Railway Stations.

This house has been freshly decorated and refurnished, and a system of management has been adopted which combines good fare and comfort with moderate charges.

Warm baths at 8d. Excellent billiard table by Thurston.

Good French wines, at 2s. 6d. and 3s. a bottle.

Beds 1s. and 1s. 6d. Breakfast ditto.

Watchman All Night. Booking office and stables.

 

At present I am not sure where Borough is likely to be if indeed it is in Kent.

I think the clue is in the railway connection.

I have traced one "Half Moon" in a high street to Chatham, but only in 1674 so far, and I do have an address of 131 High Street, but that happens to be the "Globe" also in Chatham but the licensee list suggests it was called this from between 1770 and at least 1938.

 

If anyone should have any further information, or indeed any pictures or photographs of the above licensed premises, please email:-
