A popular family-run pub and hotel in Birchington now boasts a refreshing new look, thanks to Shepherd Neame.

The Seaview Hotel’s reputation as a traditional and family-friendly venue has been enhanced thanks to new decoration and carpeting throughout.

The £66,000 refurbishment saw improvements to the bar including new fittings, such as Shepherd Neame mirrors, while some original Victorian tiles have been uncovered in the entrance.

The exterior has been also been redecorated with traditional signwriting on the paintwork and there are plans to refurbish the rooms and to add a patio to the garden.

Licensee Steve Morgan said: “We are a family-run business, with a very good reputation for food and a cosy atmosphere. The refurbishment has given everyone here a lift and it’s clear that Shepherd Neame is a caring brewer that wants to preserve its pubs.”

Built at the turn of the 19th century, the Seaview Hotel offers a wide range of cask ales and the menu draws on locally sourced food.
