Burgate Street

Canterbury

 

A "Dolphin" has been mentioned in 1689 as being situated in Burgate, but that is about all I know of this premises at present.

It is not to be confused for the other "Dolphin" now at 16 St. Radigund's Street.

The death of licensee Mr. John Stiff senior was recorded on May 27th 1795, and is mentioned as being the former master of the "Dolphin Inn" in Burgate Street.

 

Kentish Gazette 05 June 1789.

DOLPHIN INN, CANTERBURY.
