Probably the biggest beer garden in Kent is open again!

Firstly, thank you to all of you who have been supporting us during these strange times, including those of you who came on Saturday for our reopening.  What a great afternoon we had!

Our tap room, the cathedral, is continuing to be open during our usual opening hours – 4-7pm weekdays and 10am – 6pm Saturdays.  This Saturday we will have the BBQ on again with locally produced burgers, Goody Ales sausages, homemade hand raised pork pies, quiche etc.  We are very lucky to have such a spacious outside area and are delighted to open it up once again.  You can feel safe in our garden as we will follow the necessary hygiene procedures and allow for social distancing.  We will be serving at least five real ales, local cider, Kent wine and soft drinks as well as other drinks.

If you would like to come at anytime on Saturday 11th July during our opening hours, would you please contact us by email, phone call or text message with your name, contact details, how many people and approximate time of arrival.  The Govenment guidance states that we must keep a temporary record of our customers and visitors for 21 days to assist NHS Test and Trace.  If you decide to drop in, we will still require your name and contact details.

We will operate a one way passage for service through ‘the cathedral’ – in one door, order at the bar and out the other door with your order.
Children are very welcome, there is plenty of space for them to enjoy themselves but we would like to remind you that you will be responsible for supervising them at all times and should follow social distancing guidelines.

You are welcome to bring your own chairs and, if necessary, sun shades.  We do not permit any alcohol, other drinks or food onto the premises.

However, if you are unable to come we are still offering our takeaway and delivery service, ordering either by phone or on line at – free local delivery.  We are open for takeaway only during normal hours 4pm-7pm on Tuesday – Friday and 10am-6pm on Saturdays.  We also have a range of other products such as local fruit juices: apple, cherry juice, chili sauces, English wine, biltong and snacks.  Please see attached price lists.

All the best and look forward to seeing you on Saturday 11th July, if not before!
