Shepherd Neame Steps Into Christmas With New Collection of Pubs Walks

Just in time for the festive season, brewer and pub operator Shepherd Neame is launching three new Pub Walks in Kent.

In response to popular demand, a self-guided walking tour of its Faversham pubs is on offer for the first time, taking in nine sites: The Bear Inn; Sun Inn; The Bull; The Three Tuns; The Limes; Railway Hotel; Market Inn; The Anchor and Albion Taverna. The 2.5 mile route also passes a number of landmarks around the market town including the historic brewery. Why not take the opportunity to enjoy a festive stroll – stopping for a tipple at one or more of the pubs en route - before finishing off your last minute Christmas shopping at the brewery shop?

If you’re in the mood for a waterside ramble, try the new walk beside the River Medway, starting and finishing at either The Boathouse in Yalding or the Bush, Blackbird and Thrush in East Peckham.

And where better than to blow away the excess of the Christmas period than on the golf course? The third new walk takes you through Royal St George’s and Prince’s golf clubs in Sandwich, offering stunning views of Sandwich Bay and finishing with a warm welcome at The Bell Hotel or Market Inn in the town centre.

The latest set of Pub Walks join the 11 guides already on offer, launched last year in partnership with local expert Lisa Filmer, founder of Coast and Country Rambles. All paths are between four and six miles in length, starting and ending at a Shepherd Neame pub.

Shepherd Neame’s Director of Marketing and Communications Joanna Richardson said: “Our Pub Walks take in some of the most picturesque countryside across Kent, and we are delighted to add three new routes to our series. These walks are ideal for exploring during the festive season and beyond, with a variety of views and terrains on offer. We hope that families, friends and individuals of all ages are able to enjoy our Pub Walks, and join us for a warm welcome at a Shepherd Neame pub at the end of their walk.”

The Shepherd Neame Pub Walk guides are available to pick up for free at each pub and download from the Walks page on the Shepherd Neame website. To find out more, visit www.shepherdneame.co.uk/walks, and follow Shepherd Neame on social media. To share your walk experiences online use #ShepsWalks.
