The George Inn and Restaurant, Meopham, is a welcoming, warm, family run pub nestled in the countryside of Kent. At the The George Inn, the atmosphere and service is friendly and informal with select local beers and a choice of continental lagers and great wines.

We boast one of the best kitchens in the area - the menu changes on a regular basis, with a selection for every taste. The bar, apart from being one of the oldest, is certainly the friendliest. We pride ourselves on our excellent sellection of wines, spirits and ales.

Our Ghost

Whilst many English villages can only trace their history back to the Domesday Book of 1086, Meopham can trace it's history of occupation back to the Iron Age. The Romans also inhabited the area as the excavation of a 1st. and 2nd Century farmstead near The George proves. The George Inn, formerly called The Market Crouche (Cross), is unquestionably the oldest, public house in Meopham dating back to at least 1688. The village market was held in the road outside with the village stocks being sited where the car park is now situated. There is a network of tunnels beneath the road that appear to link The George, the Old Post Office opposite, (previously a workhouse) and the Church.

These may have a connection with the ghost of a headless monk who can be seen walking between The George and the Church. In years gone by the oldest bar in the, premises also doubled up as a courtroom dating back to the 18th. Century, where convicted persons would be deported to Australia.
