Situated on the King's Farm Estate to the south of the town centre this was Gravesend's last beerhouse to open and it gained its license in 1943, four years later in 1947 it received its full license serving Trumans.

The name can be traced back to 1867, and is probably not the same building as is here in the above pictures.

Unfortunately it closed in 2009 and was converted into yet another Tesco Metro Stores.
