See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
A narrow-fronted pub on the main A229 road leading out of town and reputed to the earliest pub in Maidstone. It is being run as a free house and outlet for the licensee's own Gemstone ales. The interior has a coat of white paint which gives it a lighter feel than the previous dark panelling. The building extends rearwards, through a second drinking area and that leads to a corridor, passing the toilets, to a long outside drinking/smoking area of similar narrow dimensions and then opening out to a larger area with picnic tables. Events are shown on terrestrial TV.
