Built in 1897 the building pictured above replaced another of the same name. It was situated right next to the County Court and addressed as West Street.

The pub is now (2014) closed and has been converted into two dwellings.

 

Local knowledge, further pictures, and licensee information would be appreciated.

I will be adding the historical information when I find or are sent it, but this project is a very big one, and I do not know when or where the information will come from.

All emails are answered.

 

East Kent Gazette - Saturday 12 February 1876.

Sheerness-on-Sea. Publicans in trouble.

At the Sheerness police caught on Monday, William Goathass, landlord of the "Lord Nelson, Blue Town, was fined 10 for harbouring prostitutes, by allowing them to remain in his house at longer time than was necessary for refreshment. Mr. Guise, however, did not endorse the licence, as a defendant had given notice to quit the house.
