About the Pub

This early 12th-century building has plenty of exposed beams, some low ceilings and a small seating area on a mezzanine floor that makes a good addition to the small floor area. The large inglenook fireplace provides a warm welcome in winter. Formerly a café, the Gem has been a public house since 1968 and is one of Kent's smallest pubs.

Local brewer Goacher's now own this much loved pub and have brought it back into use.

Refurbishment has taken place to restore the pub in keeping with its Grade II listed status.

Usual crisps etc and some wine and spirits are available. Beware the low doorway and ceiling as well as the step down into pub. Real ale is dispensed from two handpumps on the bar counter and from two or three chilled casks on gravity dispense on the bar back shelf.
