The Rose Inn Ashford

Welcome to The Rose Inn, Kennington, Ashford

A much-loved former coaching inn, tastefully updated

Welcome to The Rose Inn - a comfortable, friendly and stylish pub that’s served the Kennington community for 150 years. An old coaching inn, it was once the watering hole for horse-drovers travelling between Faversham and Ashford - and it’s still the place to find refreshment and relaxation just off the M20.

Recently refurbished, The Rose Inn is a smart but down-to-earth local, with two public bars and a cosy separate restaurant. Beautifully fresh beers come courtesy of Faversham’s Shepherd Neame brewery just a few miles away, while great-value homemade food is served up in famously ample portions.

The Rose Inn has four TVs showingSky Sports and BT Sport, making it one of the best pubs in the Ashford area to watch the latest live action. There are also regular pub quizzes, karaoke and live music.

Dine with us...

A selection of homemade pub classics and bar snacks are available here every lunchtime and evening from Monday to Saturday.

I gave the pub a second chance after the facelift and upgrade of parking and entrance. The roast was simply super all our guests enjoyed their meals. So pleased we will call in again good atmosphere too

Me, my other half, his mother and our 11mo daughter visited for a Sunday roast and were not disappointed. Very nice food, fair prices and extremely friendly. We felt very welcome which is rare in a pub with a baby! Will be going again!!
