PUB LIST PUBLIC HOUSES Barry Smith and Paul Skelton

Earliest 1823-

Rose

Latest 1823

(Name to)

168 London Road

Buckland

Dover

 

According to Barry Smith's research the Rose only had that name to around 1839 and also that at one time it was also called the "Three Horseshoes". He says that some time previous to 1839 it changed name to the well-known pub we know today, called the "Bull". However, I have found the "Bull" in Pigot's directory in 1823 in Buckland, so I believe to have predated his original research.

 

Another pub called the "Rose Inn" address unknown, shows in the census of 1545 that it had 12 beds and stabling and that a Thomas Foxley was the licensee and a halfpenny coinage token of 1666 shows that Thomas Green of Dover was at "The Rose" that year. Without further information and an address it is impossible to say whether this "Rose" is the same as the one at Buckland and I only have it on hearsay that it did change name to the "Bull" at present.
