Being situated half way between Deal and Sandwich this has also been know as the "Halfway House," but at present I am not certain whether it actually had that name officially.


Kentish Gazette, 13 April, 1792.


Saturday last died at the "Halfway House," between Deal and Sandwich, Mr. W. Watson, master of the house.


Kentish Gazette, 27 April 1852.

Penalty of Drunkennsss.

On Thursday evening, a man named Henry Wood, a licensed hawker, was drinking at the "Coach and Horses" public-house, Finglesham, Deal, in company with a number of men, till he got more than he could very well carry; and in going out of the door he felt one of them fumbling him about, but it was not until some time after that he discovered his loss, when he found that he had been robbed of 171. He immediately posted off to Canterbury, on the supposition that the robber had taken this direction; and the necessary information, with a description of the inspected thief, having been given, pursuit was raised.

John Sullivan and William Purcell, privates in the Royal Marines, were charged, on remand, with stealing two half-pound packets of tea, two half-pounds cooked beef, two jam pies, one loaf bread, and quantity of pickled cabbage, value 7s. 6d., the property of Thomas Chandler Chapman, at the "Coach and Horses," in parish of Sholden, on 22nd and 23rd November.

The evidence went to show that on the 22nd November, Mrs. Chapman closed the house at ten o'clock, locking all the doors. At ten minutes to eleven her husband called her downstairs and showed her the back kitchen window, which was wide open. Upon searching the house she found that the articles enumerated in the charge were missing. At 1.30 a.m., on the 23rd the prisoners were arrested by P. C. Kirby, K. C. C., at Sandwich, as deserters from the Royal Marines, and on searching them he found the stolen articles. The prisoners were each fined 20s. including costs, in default 14 days imprisonment.

COUNTY PETTY SESSIONS, Held at Wingham on Thursday.


Thomas White was charged with stealing, on the 28th of July, one overcoat, a pair of trousers, a handkerchief, and various other articles, value 50/-, belonging to Thomas Chapman, the landlord of the "Coach and Horses" at Sholden.

Annie Chapman gave evidence that on the 28th July, the prisoner with others were in the bar. He went in between eleven and twelve in the morning. Shortly after three in the afternoon, she heard a noise in her bedroom, and on going upstairs saw the prisoner under the bed. Without saying anything to him she went downstairs and called her husband, and he went up and brought the prisoner down. The prisoner had evidently been in three bedrooms, and taken some clothes away.

Thomas Chapman gave corroboratory evidence. The prisoner was perfectly sober. He valued the articles at 50/-. He called Police constable Handford and gave the man in charge.

The prisoner pleaded guilty, and was sentence to three weeks' imprisonment with hard labour.


From the Dover Express and East Kent News, Friday 20 September, 1912.



George Tuscall, a traction engine driver, was summonsed for allowing steam to escape from his engine on the public highway in sight of horses, contrary to the Locomotive Act, on July 30th, at Sholden.

Mr. A. K. Mowll appeared to defend, and pleaded not guilty.

Mr. Tom Cooper, of Finglesham, a master plasterer, said that on July 30th he drove to Margate with three van loads of children. On returning along the road leading from Sandwich to Deal, at about 10.30 p.m., when within 300 yards of the "Coach and Horses" public house, Sholden (I believe it to be this pub at Hacklinge) they heard a noise of steam blowing from a locomotive, as if the engine was about to burst. The wind blew the steam from the locomotive onto the road. They had to stop the horses 300 yards on the Sandwich side of the "Coach and Horses," because they thought it dangerous to pass the engine. Witness went up to the engine, which was outside the public house, and found no one attending it. He saw it was one of T.T. Denne's. He then went to the door of the public house and saw three men drinking at the bar. He called to them, and the driver came out and got on the engine and stopped the steam so that they might pass, which they did. The pressure of the steam previously was enough to scald any bodies legs.

In reply to Supt. Stone, witness said the locomotive was partly on the turnpike road and partly on the "draw-up" which belonged to the road. One wheel was on the main road.

Henry William Wyborn, market gardener of Finglesham, said he was driving the last of the 3 vans. Mr. Cooper was in the front one, and he said he heard steam being blown off. He saw the engine standing in front of the "Coach and Horses" when he drove by afterwards, but not before. Both wheels were on the road.

P.C. Vennell, of great Mongeham, said that he had measured the road. It was 20ft., that was the part kept by the Council. He passed it.

In reply to Mr. Mowll, witness said there was a piece 18ft. between the "Coach and Horses" and the tarred road, so that the total space was front forty feet.

Mr. A. K. Mowll for the defence said he should think the ground on which the locomotive was perched up was not the highway, but the property of the Brewery, and also that the cylinder taps were turned off, and any steam which blew off was not defendant's fault.

George Tuscall, of Upper Walmer, in the employ of Mr. T. T. Denne as an engine driver, said the engine and trailer were on private ground and the cylinder taps were shut. He disputed that there was more than a little steam, and he put it right in a minute or two. The horses went quiet quiet.

In reply to the Superintendent, witness said his engine wheel was 22 yards from the other side of the road. He was four or five yards off the road.

In reply to the Magistrate's Clerk, witness said that the steam came through the safety valve, and he could stop it by turning on water through the injector. It was safe to leave the engine as he had done. Had as much steam escaped as Mr. Cooper said, it would have taken some time to put right.

Charles Hooker, of Curson Terrace, Upper Walmer, a drayman to Messrs. Thompson and Son. said the engine was drawn up right off the tarred path of the road. He was just going to draw attention to the steam escaping when Mr. Cooper came, but it was only a little steam.

Mr. Mowll was going to call Mr. Ladbury to prove that the land was the private property of Messrs. Thompson, but the Magistrate's Clerk said that it did not effect the case as there was a public right of way.

The Bench, after retiring, decided to dismiss the case on a technical point, but they warned defendant to be more careful in future not to blow of steam to the danger of horses near the highway.


Dover Express, Friday 26 August 1927.


At the Sandwich County Police Court on Monday, before the Mayor (Alderman H. Wyborn), Ernest Wilfred Wallond was charged with breaking; into the "Coach and Horses," Public House, the half-way house on the Deal and Sandwich road, between the 16th and 19th instants, and stealing 3 12s. and a rain proof coat value 12s. the property of George Maxted, the landlord. Detective Constable Sharp, stationed at Deal, deposed that at 2.30 p.m. on the 20th inst. he saw prisoner detained at Folkestone Police Station. After cautioning him witness said he had been detained on suspicion of breaking into the "Coach and Horses" Public House on the night of August 17th-18th. Prisoner replied, "I admit it. I have something to say about it." He then made a statement which witness took down and prisoner signed.

This was read by the Clerk (Mr. L. N. Watts), and was to the effect that prisoner entered the public house about 9 p.m. and concealed himself behind the piano until the inmates had retired. Between 11 and 12 he came out and took all the money he could find in the till, and also the coat. When he got to his lodgings he counted the money and found 3 12s. He gave a long detailed list to show how he had spent the money, including a trip from Deal to Margate with a lady friend, costing 5s. 3d., and 8s. spent at Margate. Continuing ho said he left the 10th Hussars in June, and concluded by intimating that he preferred a term of imprisonment to being sent back to his regiment.

Prisoner was remanded to the Wingham Sessions on September 1st.


From the Dover Express, 10 September, 1971.


Anyone who tells Mr. Larry Searle, 54-year-old landlord of the "Coach and Horses" on the Deal road out of Sandwich to "put that in your pipe and smoke it," may be accused of being vague. For Mr. Searle has a collection of no less than 80 pipes of every conceivable shape and vintage and 60 of them are in regular use.

They are the product of a collectors mind and an eye for the unusual spread over 38 years of steady puffing. Though they are displayed on the wall of the saloon bar visitors usually respect the "Do not touch" notice and only one has been broken.

The finest example is a beautifully carved and melowly coloured merschaum in the shape of a girl's head which is well over 100 years old and possibly the most unusual one in which the bowl is a piece of raw merschaum clay.

Some have unusual stories behind them. One a briar carved to resemble a football balanced on the toe of a football boot was picked up in the Italian lines by a member of the advancing eighth army in 1943, in the western desert. Another is an old army field pipe of ingenious design. When not in use its parts screw together to form a dust proof unit which could be carried in the pocket.

Almost the newest and certainly the most elegant is a gilded and jewelled contemporary lady's pipe given to Mr. Searle by a leading tobacco firm when a mammoth "smoke-in" was held at the inn.

Smash shock for publican.

A DOVER man was slightly injured when the car he was in smashed through the wall of the "Coach and Horses Inn" on the Deal-Sandwich Road at Hacklinge.

Mr. Ronald Shucksmith, of Rokesky Road, Dover, received bruising on his right temple when the Jaguar ploughed into the pub's restaurant section in the early hours of Saturday morning.

The car was driven by Mr. Michael Theobald (22) of Lower Road, River.

Inn landlord Mr. Tom Bradley, who also runs the "High and Dry" pub at Waldershare, said: "The car went straight into the middle of the restaurant wrecking it and the furniture. It was lucky no-one was in there. "I don't know how much this is going to cost to put right."

Coach and Horses bar at Hacklinge

GOOD food and the music of top singing sensations can soon be experienced at the Coach and Horses near Deal.

The first in the tribute line-up nights will be on Wednesday, March 5 2003.

"We want to give something a bit special to cheer up those mid weeks," said Penny Barnes, who runs the popular restaurant and pub at Hacklinge with her husband Mike.

Tribute singers for Neil Diamond, Tom Jones and Robbie Williams will be performing on three separate Wednesday evenings when the chefs will create a special three-course meal.

All menus will vary on each of the three nights and there is an excellent choice to suit everyone's enjoyment.

For the Neil Diamond night the starters will be Brussels pate with toast, prawn cocktail or garlic mushrooms.

The main course choices are chicken chasseur, cod in parsley sauce or stuffed aubergines, all served with jacket potato, peas and carrots.

It will be difficult to decide on the delicious desserts with profiteroles with chocolate sauce or fresh fruit salad.

After Love on the Rocks with Neil Diamond on March, the following week the Tom Jones tribute singer will be concentrating on a wealth of titles from Delilah to Sex Bomb.

If Robbie Williams is a favourite then book now for March 19. These special events cost 19.95 each and payment is essential in full in advance. To reserve a place, phone 01304 617063.

The Coach and Horses is now in the good hands of Penny and Mike Barnes, who have a wealth of experience in the catering trade.

Penny said: "At the Coach and Horses we aim to provide a destination pub-restaurant venue serving quality food with quality service.

"We are proud of our extensive and interesting wine list and our quality real ales."

There is ample car parking at The Coach and Horses at Hacklinge on the Deal-Sandwich Road. The business also organises buffets, parties and special occasions.

Mr. Kevin Savage, swapped his Eastry bungalow for the pub when he moved into the pub in the 1990s.

During the early 1980s the pub changed into a nightclub called "Gigs Nightspot" but Kevin Savage opened up as a public house again, changing the name to the "Coach House."

The present licensees bought the freehold off Kevin Savage in 2002 and returned the name to the one we know today, the "Coach and Horses."

I have done some digging on family search and it would seem that Samuel Dewell's parents were not Joseph and Eliza, according to census records, Samuel Dewell was living at the "Coach and Horses" from 1841.

I did have a look for Joseph and Eliza in census records and a death certificate for Joseph but I cannot find anything on them I'm afraid.

Thank you for your help

The Coach and Horses pub in Hacklinge has donated the proceeds from its regular monthly pub quizzes to local charity Martha Trust.

The pub managed to raise 991 in total for Martha, a charity that cares for people with profound disabilities across Kent.

Pub landlords Penny and Mike Barnes said: “Martha Trust has two homes in Hacklinge so it's great to be supporting such a local charity.

“We have some friends who benefit from Martha Trust's respite care for their daughter. They really appreciated the great work the charity does, so it's a pleasure to be able to give them this donation.”

Fatal crash on A258 Deal to Sandwich road sparks safety calls.

Fresh calls to improve the safety of the A258 Deal to Sandwich road have been made following the death of a woman after a head-on collision.

The 53-year-old, who has not yet been named, was airlifted to hospital after the crash at Hacklinge last Tuesday.

She died from her injuries on Friday night.

Angela Farrington, who lives on the road, has now spoken out about the area’s safety and says she will support any action to stop more injuries and deaths.

She said: “I would like to see whatever it takes to stop people having these accidents – whether it’s a solid white line, a double white line, a further speed reduction or hazardous signs warnings people of the exits.

“I don’t know what is causing accidents but anything that is going to help stop them would be worth it.”

Her plea comes after police attended a second accident involving a car in a ditch at the same spot on Tuesday this week.

She has campaigned for road safety improvements in the past.

Mrs Farrington called for people to stop overtaking other vehicles – even tractors.

She added: “It may be a straight road but people don’t realise there are 11 entrances and exits between Bridge Hill and Hacklinge Hill.

“If there is a tractor on the road, people should sit back and wait like many others do.

“People are just so impatient these days and I think that’s half the problem.

“The wait from Deal to Sandwich is no time at all in the scheme of things. I would rather sit behind a tractor and be safe.”

Mike Barnes, owner of The Coach and Horses for 15 years, said “the road is a death trap” and suggested speed cameras as a deterrent.

He said: “The speeds we see every day and night, I’m surprised there aren’t more accidents.”

Stephanie Longley, shop assistant at Felderland Farm Shop, said: “People don’t abide by the speed limit. Cameras would slow them down.”

Sandwich town and district councillor feels the crash has been a wake up call.

He said: “I’m very concerned that the road is an A road and is used by a lot of traffic. It’s narrow with lots of rural sub roads coming off it.

“Maybe the incidents that have happened are a wake up call for the road to be looked at.”

The 53-year-old woman who died was travelling in a green Renault Clio. The front seat passenger, a woman, remains in hospital in a stable condition.

A 31-year-old woman and two children travelling in the a brown Peugeot 3008 sustained minor injuries and were taken to a local hospital.

Police renewed their appeal for witnesses on Saturday after the death was announced.

Friendly, family-run pub.

Come and experience what one diner described as ‘...the best meal I’ve had this year’.

The Coach & Horses, in Sandwich Road, Hacklinge, has introduced a gourmet burger to its menu which has been selling like crazy.

Coach and Horses inside 2016

It is served in a toasted brioche bun with a special blend of beef mince to ensure premium quality.

Chef Chris Millett has also developed his own signature chipotle sauce which is served on the side.

Packed full with toppings, including homemade onion rings, it is a delicious meal.

Meanwhile, head chef Penny Barnes has been busy developing the Christmas menu which is now available.

Throughout December you can enjoy a traditional roast turkey dinner all day, every day without booking.

There are still a few spaces left for Christmas parties which come with Christmas crackers and place cards.

Family friendly and family run, The Coach & Horses is a busy, rural, traditional pub that serves food from midday.

Boasting gorgeous gardens, a pool table, quiz nights, folk nights and plenty to look at while you are there, it is definitely worth a visit for Christmas or any time.



Looks like the horses bolted in Match 2022 after Mike and Penny Barnes retired. It now seems there will be a change of name to just the "Coach." They say their restaurant chain is connected to the "Granville" and also the "Coastguard." Their new website when live will be as follows:- and Facebook page here:-
