Originally built in 1541,
 Started to be used as an ale house in the mid 1700s.
It was called The "Chequers" and renamed "TheTickled Trout " in 1987. It is a Grade II listed building. .

Found it.

I thought I'd have a look through an old book. "Inns of Kent" by G.M. Rainbird published 1948. On the cover is the picture below (The picture I've used is from inside the book).

Afraid I can't help with identity of pub; am intrigued though by the 3 very large & high chimneys behind. A friend of mine in 1947 ( Bill Mercer) lived in a pub in Mereworth. He collected a whole series of metal pub signs ( about 2" x 21/2") issued by Whitbread. One very interesting was " The Startled Saint" at West Malling. A Saint with hands aloft & eyes wide, with two or three Spitfires circling the rim of his halo. I wonder if it's still there?

  :)  He would have loved to see this collection - there's even some Medway pubs that he didn't have in his files.

This may not be much help as I cannot identify the pub, but that looks like an old M&D bus timetable on the far right of the photo.

Shame, if Roy Murrant was still alive, he would have helped you.

A new game to while (or wile) away the hours  :)

Actually, it will be doing me a big favour if the pub can be identified, as I have no idea.

I've had access to a collection of postcards (about 75) produced by the brewer F.Leney & Son's, based in Wateringbury, Kent. The vast majority have the name & location printed on them, but some have no information at all. The pubs listed appear to cover the West of the county, from Sittingbourne / Isle of Sheppey across to the Sussex border.


The name Leney disappeared from pubs in 1960, having been bought out by Whitbreads a few years earlier.

I'll be publishing a book (or books) later in the year, so any positive information on the unknown pubs will be greatly appreciated :)
