See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

A spacious venue on the ground floor of a five-storey block that was once the site of a local newspaper works. The mainly glass external walls allow panoramic views of the pedestrian shopping street alongside. A large outside space is split into smoking and non-smoking areas. The name of the pub is taken from William Shipley, founder of the Royal Society of Arts and the Maidstone Society for Promoting Useful Knowledge, who is buried nearby. Live news on TVs, with no sound. Beer is served from 9am.
