'Opening' party Saturday 13th July! Get in touch for more information - we look forward to welcoming you!

A much-loved former coaching inn

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.


Homemade pub food

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

A selection of homemade pub classics and bar snacks are available here every lunchtime and evening from Monday to Saturday. Choose from fresh sandwiches, traditional fish and chips, burgers, jacket potatoes and more, and don’t forget to book for Sunday lunch.

Events & functions

The Rose Inn has four TVs showing sport, making it one of the best pubs in the Ashford area to watch the latest live action. There are also pub quizzes, and we host a Poker League here on Tuesdays.

The restaurant is also available for private functions. So if you’re looking for a private-hire venue near Ashford for wedding receptions, wakes and parties of all kinds, get in touch today to see what The Rose Inn has to offer.
