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. Sample our tried and tested menu bursting with traditional country pub classics. We strive to use locally sourced ingredients of the highest quality so what’s not to love! Indulge on succulent steaks, classic pies, home cooked ham and a lovely roast dinner on a Sunday afternoon. Food is served Monday to Thursday 12-3pm & 6-9pm, Fridays & Saturdays 12-9pm, Sundays 12-5pm. For those not content to just relax there is no shortage of walks where you can take in some of the breath taking views across the Downs. If you want to explore further afield we are also close to Canterbury, Dover, Faversham, Hythe and many more of Kent's beautiful towns. Added to this is an extensive rural garden and south facing front sun terrace we also have a 2.5 acre paddock which is available to hire for private events! As the home of one of Kent's most popular Beer Festivals, four top condition Real Ales are always available. Sample some of Kent's award winning local real ales from breweries such as Hopdaemon, Old Dairy, Gadds, Whitstable Brewery, Wantsum and more. We offer a wide range of Lagers, Wines and Spirits.
