In 1869-70 the pub was part of a consortium who were advertising their goods of selling tea in response to grocers' selling beer and wine. (Click for further details.)

I also know this has been or is called "Alberres" at some time if its existence, but do not know when. Local knowledge needed here please.

 

From the Kentish Chronicle and General Advertiser, 14 September, 1861. Price 1 1/2d.

NEW LICENSES.

There were six applications for spirit licenses on the part of beer-shop keepers, viz, John Brooker, of the “Richmond Tavern,” Brook-street, Herne Bay; Thomas Newington, “Cross Keys,” Chartham; William Henry Pettman, of the “Guinea,” John Harman, of the “Prince Albert,” and William Philpott, of the “Dredgerman’s Arms,” all of the parish of Whitstable; and Samuel James Salter, of the “Queens Head,” Seasalter.

 

 

I am informed that in 1866 a fire damaged the premises and had to be later rebuilt. Further details hopefully to be added.
