Welcome to the Wheelwrights Arms...
The Wheelwrights Arms at Matfield is a traditional Kentish weatherboard pub. Built in 1602 as a farm building, the pub is now owned by Shepherd Neame but has been privately run by Rob & Gem Marshall since May 2011.
Visitors will find a traditional pub with a warm atmosphere, well kept ales, good wine, and interesting food.
Five cask ales usually available on draught, including favourites from the Shepherd Neame Stable and now also frequent guest ales. We serve a varied selection of good wines generally under £25 a bottle, with most available by the glass.
We keep a small, frequently changing menu, prepared from fresh ingredients which we serve at lunch & dinner times. At lunch we also offer sandwiches made from our own bread and butter churned in our own kitchen. We serve traditional roasts on Sundays. The menus reflect the seasons, both in ingredients and style. We also like a dessert, be it a classic with a twist, or something a little different. As a small, independent business, we support other small, local, independent businesses wherever we can, which means there is always a lot of locally sourced produce being used in our kitchen.
We've sometimes been called a gastro pub, and if we are then we insist it is as much about the pub as it is the gastro. Drop in for a pint, or a glass of wine - or a coffee from beans ground to order - and enjoy over friendly chat. If you've never visited us before, you won't be a stranger for long.
Hope to see you soon,
Rob & Gem.
