I am informed by Anita Bentley that her grandfather was once licensee of the pub, but she didn't give his name. She also says that the pub was a Whitbread pub when he had it, and that it has now (info in 2016) been demolished.

 

From the Kentish Gazette, 18 March 1845.

MARGATE. March 8.

William Rustige, aged 23, was charged before John Boys, Esq., with stealing on the 5th instant a silver watch the property of Mr. H. B. Davis. The prisoner who is a private in the 1st Dragoon Guards, was on the removal of that regiment from Canterbury, on account of the election, to this place, billeted at the "Royal Oak" public-house, kept by Mr. Davis, and after he had left, it was discovered that a chest of drawers had been unlocked, and the watch above mentioned stolen therefrom and afterwards pledged at the shop of Mr. Radford, a pawnbroker here. The prisoner was duly committed to take his trial at the next Dover Sessions.
