Welcome to The Bowl Inn

This 16th Century free house is situated on top of the North Downs in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The Bowl Inn is now under new ownership and the owners are putting their stamp on this charming country Inn. So come and enjoy our newly refurbished bar and warm yourself by the open fire.

Why not sample some of Kent's award winning local real ales from breweries such as Hopdaemon, Old Dairy, Gadds, Whitstable Brewery, Wantsum and many more.

Added to this is an extensive rural garden and south facing front sun terrace which is covered and heated on those more typical English summer days!

See our Dine section for our excellent home cooked food menus.

Join us on Saturday 2nd May from 4.30pm for a charity fundraiser! Listen to great music from Loose Change and donate to a good cause. Donations will be given to Macmillan and Cancer Research. Bring the family along and enjoy the music with us!!


The building work has well and truly started here at The Bowl. We are open as usual through this time. Come and see what we are doing!

Our kitchen will be closed due to renovations from 21st April to 28th April. We will be serving food Saturday 25th April 12pm-9pm and Sunday 26th April 12pm-5pm

For walkers visit and create yourself a walk or use a "ready made" one!
