Obviously a military orientated pub but only traced from between 1874 and 1882 at present, but number 28 has been listed in the late 1880s as being the 1st Volunteers East Kent Regiment, The Buffs, B & C Companies, Armoury Stores, so it appears the name or at least part of it continued. In the 1890s there was a Thomas C. Carden, Seargeant instructor 1st Vol. Battallion, East Kent Regiment  of The Buffs at the premises, but in 1903 all connection to the military had disappeared and the premises was home to Alfred Goodban, Picture Frame maker.

1907, it was advertising gramophones with A W George in charge, and he was still there as late as 1918.
