In 1869-70 the pub was part of a consortium who were advertising their goods of selling tea in response to grocers' selling beer and wine. (Click for further details.)

Gravesend Reporter, North Kent and South Essex Advertiser, Saturday 19 January 1867.


On Friday (yesterday) evening week, an inquest was held at the "Two Brewers Inn," before C. J. Carttar, Esq , coroner, on the body of a man named John Rumley, aged 64, who dropped down dead in Mr. Sibley's stable, Lowfield, on the day previous. It appeared from the evidence that the deceased was a labouring man and much addicted to drinking. A year or two back he became a teetotaller, and kept the pledge for twelve months, but at the expiration of the time he broke it and resumed his old practices. There was no post-mortem examination, but Dr. Hoare, who saw the deceased, gave it as his opinion that the deceased internally was much diseased, and that death arose from natural causes.

Verdict accordingly.


Maidstone Journal and Kentish Advertiser, Saturday 17 June 1871.

Sudden death.

An inquest was held at the "Two Brewers Inn," Dartford, by C. J. Carttar, Esq., on Friday afternoon, on the body of John Smith, who fell down suddenly in a fit, and almost immediately expired, on Tuesday morning, about 10 o'clock, while engaged in his ordinary occupation at Mr. Walklinmg's, carrier, of Dartford. Deceased had been ailing some time. Dr. Martin stated he had made a post mortem examination, and found an enlargement of the liver and disease of the heart.

Verdict according to the medical testimony.


The premises was certainly open in 2008, but by 2016 it had closed its doors to customers.
