King's Arms, Poundsbridge, Penshurst.

A FINE OLD OFF-LICENCE.

This off-licence, known as the "King's Arms," Poundsbridge, Near Penshurst, Kent, is a fine example of Tudor architecture.

The property belongs to Messrs. Style & Winch.

It was originally built for William Dartnell, Vicar of Penshurst, as a Dower House for his wife but it is not known when it became an inn. Up to 60 years ago the house was an On-Licence known as the "Old Picture" but it is now an Off-Licence under the sign the "King's Arms."

 

Also known as the "Pounds Bridge Inn" but whether it had this name officially and when it changed is as yet unknown.
