I have been informed that the pub did closed for a short while in the 1980s.

Again advertised as being for sale for 305,000 in April 2014. A well presented public house having a side entrance from Boundary Road. The business benefits from 7 darts teams and a pool team and hosts live music and occasional discos. Games bar with pool and darts facilities and plasma screen, central bar area, lower front bar area with seating for 15 covers, two L- shaped serveries. basement cellarage, small car park, most attractive rear terraced paved trade garden for 100 covers. Three bedroom private accommodation with roof terrace and garage. A gem of a pub all in excellent decorative order.


Thanet Advertiser 29 September 1900.

The case of the "East Kent Arms," the renewal of the license of which house was suspended owing to certain alterations having been carried by the tenant without due notice having been given to the Justices, was next considered. The owners’ representative now stated that plans were not submitted to the Justices because they did not carry out any structural alterations. They simply renewed old work, the only alteration being in the position of the counter. The bar was exactly the same as before. The Bench granted a renewal of the licence.
