Kentish Gazette, Friday 18 May 1798.


To be Let and Entered upon immediately, ready furnished, all that respectable and commodious Inn or Hotel, situated in the centre of the town of Ramsgate, in the Isle of Thanet; together with a wine-vault, one hundred and twenty feet long; coach houses and stabling for sixty horses; now or late in the tenure or occupation of Mr. William Young.

The rent is not so much a consideration with the proprietors, as engaging with a person capable of conducting it.

Enquire at Messrs. Fenner and Flint, Canterbury.

Thanet Advertiser 9 March 1872.

Transfer of License.

Before the Sandwich Bench of Magistrates, on Monday, when there were present R. Harrison, sen, J. L. Drayson, J. Dorman, and R. L. Harrison, Esqs.

A wine license was transferred from Joseph F. Hallett, of 39, Harbour-street, Ramsgate, to Joseph Cooper.


From the Kent and Sussex Courier, 10 October, 1873.

RAMSGATE. Closing of Public Houses.

Some confusion has arisen as to when the extension of time granted by the magistrates comes into operation. Supt. Buss contends that the Mayor of Sandwich distinctly told him not until 1874. However, a notice which has just been served upon all publicans leads to an opposite conclusion, which says, "One month from the date of this order." The order bears date September 1873. The extension given was, it will be remembered, until twelve o’clock every night from the 15th June to the 15th October, excepting Saturday, which was to be 11.45; Sunday to remain at 10.

The transfer was approved of the licence of the "Admiral Fox" from Robert George Pearce to John Albert Holyer.
