About the Pub

Reopened in July 2018 as an Ale House & Tapas Bar, This Ancient Boro’ was previously known as the Honeymoon Chinese Restaurant. Up until 1968, the site had, for many years, been a Whitbread Public House and known as This Ancient Boro’, therefore, having acquired the site in May 2018, it seemed only right that it should return to its former name.

The pub is a hybrid of the original This Ancient Boro’ itself and that of a micropub, it has the appeal of the micropub idea, no live music, no gaming machines and a preference for prolonged telephone calls to be taken outside.

Food is available all day in the form of Tapas, Bocadillos are available until 5pm, on Sundays traditional roast dinners are available. There are a variety of Ales and styles of beer (such as Porters, Stouts and Milds along with various Bitters) all sold by gravity dispense from cooled casks on stillage in the bar area, Ciders are served from a fridge.

They feature a wide range of Gins, with Anno from Marden in Kent supplying the House Gin and House Vodka. The Wine List includes a selection of Spanish Wines to complement the various Home Cooked Tapas, also available are local wines from Gusbourne Vineyard based in Appledore, Kent.
