Pilgrims' Hall (Licensed)

In the centuries after its construction in 1280, the Pilgrims’ Hall became a barn, then a brewery, alms house and even the headquarters for a Scouts group. Today, hot meals and a roaring fire during Christmas lunches, once again invite visitors in from the outside world. The oak-beamed setting of the Pilgrims’ Hall offers delicious meals served in a relaxed atmosphere, enjoyed with spectacular views across the River Medway.

The 13th century inspired interior is perfect for sampling the delights of our fresh, local produce, including homemade cakes and lunches.
