Built in 1690, The Three Horseshoes is one of the oldest pubs in Kent, and even outdates some of Shepherd Neame's brewing records.

 

Kentish Gazette 09 October 1787.

CANTERBURY, Oct. 9.

On Saturday afternoon about five o'clock, as Mr. Curling, master of the "Three Horse Shoes," public-house, at Hernehill, was returning home in his cart from this city, just beyond the milestone on the Harbledown road, the horse took fright and ran away, and he endeavouring to catch hold of the reins, fell from the cart, and the wheel went over his body, by which he was so much bruised that he was carried to the "Coach and Horses" at Harbledown, where, in less than two hours, he expired in great agonies.

 

From the Faversham Times, Saturday 7 January 1939.
