Not a lot is known about the pub under this name other than to suggest it was previously called the "Malt Shovel" and changed name to the "New Inn" before 1791.

Last week, a young man from the country, who had been drinking excessively, coming out of the door of the "White Hart," Faversham, dropped down, and instantly expired.

 

 

I have just added the pubs of Faversham after a visit to the hop festival in 2012.

I will be adding further information as time allows, but with my site getting ever larger, time spent on each pub is being watered down unfortunately. Your information, photos, old or new and licensee names and dates is much appreciated.
