Is there a written history of this pub in Faversham?

I won't quote it in full but the Faversham Papers number 19  'Inns and Taverns of Faversham' has a little albeit perhaps largely fanciful history of the buildings.

Landlords are given as George Jones in 1887. Alfred George Parker 1901.John Markwell Campbell 1903, Arthur Wills 1904, Frederick Fairbrace 1905. Thomas Brain 1907, John Lodge 1910, Henry Bicker 1922 and Ernest Lyons 1926. (That is a lot of changes for this day and age. There's something strange about that number in the early 1900s)   

Frank Allwood took over in 1933 and it was 'under management' there after (Presumably Rigdens or Whitbread).

The building were 98 and 99 Abbey Street. Number 99 is all that remains of a 'splendid mediaeval hall'  number 98 (which is away from the town centre) incorporates one of the jetty ends (of 99). The rear is of a later date but the hall itself dates from about 1330.

No there isn't. There appears to have been an application for a beer house made in 1861 but it was refused (Fa/JP.8/2) it was then granted in 1862 and to be called the Phoenix Tavern (albeit with the beer house restrictions). However it had been granted a full license by 1872.

Unfortunately the full licensing records for Faversham don't appear to have come down to us. What I garnered is from the unofficial minutes which were included in the towns extensive record collection and now held in Maidstone.
