The Shipwright’s Arms- loacated in Faversham, Kent is an ancient pub over 300 years old. However, the history of the Pub tells us it would have been fuctioning as an inn some time before the 18th century. Many pirates and smugglers used the inn as well as sailors and fishermen that would have visited the inn to refresh themselves while waiting to unload their cargo in the neartown of Faversham.
The pub still maintains a listening watch on vhf radio for mariners who may be in distress and the current landlord keeps tradition by acting as a volonteer coastguard to the testers boat yard, which is located adjacent to the pub.
The pubs remote loacation has, until recently forced them to be totally self-sufficient, to the extent that they would even generate their own electricity. They still draw water from their well and cook using propane gas.
The Shipwright’s Arms is a maratime of history and is bursting to share it with all those who enter through its doors. They serve a wide range of food between 12 and 2.30pm and 7pm and 9pm.
