Situated at the heart of Romney Marsh to the North East of New Romney, The Warren Inn is a friendly and cosy traditional Victorian Pub. The pub's ideal location makes it the perfect place to grab some lunch or relax in the evening on a family day out.

Located on the main coastal road between Rye and Folkestone (the A259) the pub is just 30 minutes’ drive from the M20, the Eurostar and the Channel Ports. Nearby is the medieval town of Rye, Port Lympne Wild Animal Park, Brenzett Air Museum, Littlestone Golf course and the golden beaches of the Kentish coast.

The Warren Inn was first licenced around 1860 and it still retains its Victorian interior. It absolutely oozes character with its welcoming, comfy armchairs surrounding the log burning open fire and wood burning stove, the walls are covered in local, traditional bric-a-brac and it's said the pub even has a resident ghost, called Old Sid.

The Warren Inn is proud of the Real Ale it serves and is open all day. Well-known locally for its delicious, fresh food, there is a large, spacious beer garden with a safe play area for children complete with swings and a play house and plenty of parking, including room for coaches.

The Warren serves fresh, home cooked food with the majority of ingredients being locally sourced with the eggs and many herbs, salad and vegetables coming straight from the pub's own garden. The specials board is updated daily and special diets can usually be catered for with an assortment of gluten free and dairy free products, although it is advisable to get in touch beforehand. 

Indoors, the pub holds frequent events, including monthly Karaoke, live bands, disco nights, theme nights and a variety of other activities, including dart boards and pool tables and a quiz.

Outside, the pub also hosts a number of outdoor sports in the summer and each year hosts the Marsh Festival, a day of live music with food stalls, barbecue and an outside bar. The pub's garden also hosts many charity events through the year and hosts special occasions, with most outside events accompanied by a hog roast. For smokers, the pub has a magnificent, wind-protected wigwam with tables and chairs, and even a TV.
