About the Pub

This popular and bustling Wetherspoon pub is situated in the town's shopping precinct. It was once a cinema and its name is linked to the bells in St Mary's Church opposite.

Inside, there is a large open-plan room with a long bar and a raised restaurant area. At the front of the pub an enclosed seating area looks out on to the precinct.

Twelve handpumps dispense a range of regular and guest ales, with at least two ales from a Kent microbrewery and a real cider from Gwynt Y Ddraig. There are real ale offers on Monday.

Two beer festivals are held each year - Spring and Winter and a cider festival in mid-summer.

The pub is close to public transport services and there is a public car park just a minute's walk away.
