Despite being so busy on Sunday lunchtimes, the Landlord and Landlady of The Shipwright`s Arms were kind enough to cater for my husband`s father`s 90th birthday lunch with 16 people attending. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the ambience of the Shipwrights; and all managed somehow to eat their superb and huge sunday roasts. My Father in law to our astonishment managed the... More

We stopped here on Saturday lunch time half way through our walk, we were welcomed by the friendly bar staff. We had a couple of baguettes and chips and it was super. The young girl behind the bar was really lovely and made us feel very welcome I think her name was Kirsty, The bar was really interesting with lots... More

Went to the Shipwrights for the first time in a good few months. Derek the grumpy landlord was in surprisingly good form and not grumpy at all. Was not sure whether to be surprised or disappointed. The food was good, can't beat the pies.

The location is of course the main attraction. For us it was half way round a Saxon Shore walk and it was a fine day, so the garden was the place to be. The beer, Shipwreck, is brewed especially for this pub and it's very good. As far as the food is concerned, don't expect Cordon Bleu or Michelin star... More

We went for lunch last Friday, quiet old fashioned pub, great location on the estuary. Friendly staff, good pub grub, great selection of ales. My lunch of ham, egg & chips was very tasty, my wife's fish pie was a bit dry and the veg uninspiring. We will visit again for the location and the beers, food is only ok.

snuggled against the sea wall , next do to a working boatyard, the Shipwright's Arms really does meet all expectations of a pub in deepest Kent, by the Swale. This is a pub for real ale drinkers: a hearty welcome greets everyone who enters and expands to effusive bonhomie to connoisseurs of their brews. There is too a good selection... More

I had heard of this pub via a friend and decided to give it a look. It was my husband's birthday and as a lover of water and boats it seemed an ideal choice and we weren't disappointed. Without the Sat Nav we would never have found it despite only living some 15 miles away. We enjoyed a sandwich which... More

We went to the shipwrights arms for a meal and then saw the morris dancers who were dancing in the car park. The food and drink were good pub grub and the staff were very courteous and helpful. The fantastic sunset over the smile made the experience memorable.

The main reason to visit this lovely old pub is its wonderful, remote location on a creek leading into the Swale. You can walk across the marshes from Faversham in about 90mins. One could spend hours here just watching the tide come and go - though note that because of the flood defence bank there is no view of the... More

The Shipwright's Arms is situated on marshland and during the winter of 2014 suffered some flooding, causing it to close for renovations. Our most recent visit was in early June 2014 and we were pleased to see that the Shipwright's is back and as good as ever, albeit with a new carpet. Apart from the delightful interior with its linked... More
