The building adjoins the "Ship Hotel" and was actually incorporated into part of the business between 1935 and about 1982 when it was sold off by the proprietors of the "Ship Hotel" and is now a privately owned house, although it was listed as for sale on 13th march 2012 at a price of 400,000.

Originally the building can be traced back to 1558 when it was operating under the name of the "Falcon." Between that date and 1752 it was called the "Wheatsheaf" but didn't get it name of the "Queen's Head" in that year.

Kentish Gazette, 2 January 1849.

Inquest.

An inquest was held on Thursday last, by Mr. J. Tassell, coroner far the borough, on the body of a pensioner named William Caspel, who was found dead in his bed on the previous day, at his lodging at the "Queen's Head" public house. A young man who slept in the same room with deceased stated that he heard rather a curious noise in the night, but that as he was very tired, he fell asleep, and on getting up in the morning he did not call deceased, as he appeared to be asleep. It was subsequently ascertained that he was not quite dead, and on Mr. Garraway, the surgeon, being sent for, he pronounced life to have been extinct for some hours. A post mortem examination was afterwards made by that gentleman, who found the cause of death to be the bursting of one of the large blood-vessels near the heart.

The jury returned a verdict accordingly.
