A destination dining site tucked neatly away in rural Harrietsham village, Maidstone, the Ringlestone Inn is a medieval lamp lit tavern with plentiful dining space and great gardens.
A hidden gem, tucked neatly away in the rural village of Harrietsham, the Ringlestone Inn is a traditional destination dining style pub and restaurant located in Maidstone, Kent.
Built in 1533, The Ringlestone Inn was originally used as a hospice for monks, but became one of the early “ale houses” around 1615. Very little has changed at the Ringlestone since then and it remains a medieval, lamp lit tavern with its original brick and flint walls and floors, oak beams, inglenooks and centuries-old English furniture.
Internally you will find a feature bar servery with multiple trade areas to include a drinking area with an open fireplace and three restaurant dining areas for around sixty covers in total. There is a good sized trade kitchen on site with a separate preparation area and there is plentiful outdoor storage space available.
The large family friendly back garden with children’s play equipment is a huge draw for the customers at the Ringlestone Inn, during the warmer it attracts customers from far and wide and together with the onsite customer car parking, it allows you to cater for alfresco dining when the weather permits.
For the first time in over eleven years, Shepherd Neame is looking for new tenants to take on the running of the Ringlestone Inn. With the opportunity to reposition the pub in the local market, the Ringlestone Inn would lend itself to experienced operators with proven catering skills that are looking to establish themselves in a beautiful destination dining site.
