Lovely pub
Jul 2019 • Couples
Taking a walk along the creek from Faversham Town centre along to this pub is a joy in itself.

Once arrived at this lovely pub, you can sit outside enjoying a quiet drink.

There is food available and check times as it's from 12-2.30 and I would book to avoid missing out.

Olde Boating Pub

Great food and beer and the Pub is right on the edge of the river. Wonderful views. Fascinating interior full of yachting and ship memorabilia.

Half way on the two creeks walk
May 2017 • Couples
The shipwrights arms is in just the right place for a rest and a drink if you walk the two creeks. An old world pub with views of the creeks and beyond.

such a wonderful place, if your looking for something completely oldey worldly this is the place its in a fantastic remote location little booths to sit in the winter with a roaring fire and gardens in the summer - you will have to check directions if you haven't been before - this is good pub food in the old fashioned terms - always a favourite for a drink with visitors

Great Meal, Great Location !
Nov 2016 • Friends
As a party of tweve, we visited this quaint old pub for lunch, after a five mile walk across the mashes between Faversham and Oare. We had made a telephone call a few days earlier to request use of the car park while we completed the walk and were told, Yes, as long a you buy a pint. This seemed like a good deal, after all the guy is in business to make a living.
After our two and a half hour walk, we returned for our pints and a dozen beautifully cooked lunches.
The menu included a good selection of choices including Fish and Chips, Liver and Bacon, Ham Egg and Chips plus several more, too numerous to mention here. There was also a selection of great dessert dishes.
It was a bitterly cold day and the landlord had kindly lit a nice log fire near our group of tables. Nice touch !!

Authentic Smugglers pub
Nov 2016
It must be over 20 years since we last went to the Shipwights and it seems very little if anything has changed. Not that it's a bad thing as the pub still retains its quaint smuggler atmosphere. Food and the ale were good and reasonably priced. Good stop off point for lunch if you are out for a walk Long the shoreline.

AHOY SHIPMATE FOR GREAT FOOD AND LOCATION
Nov 2016 • Friends
So grateful that friends introduced us on 9 Nov to a really quaint atmospheric and traditional pub set on the misty windswept creeks of Faversham. It's real gem, warm and inviting on a cold day, friendly owners and, being several hundred years old, it has a rich history of smuggling, piracy and ghosts - with it's own spooky corner. And the food was fantastic home cooked. In a really desolate location, all by itself, you could really imagine yourself back a few hundred years with ancient characters rising out of the gloom.

We certainly intend to return there. It's quiet ( no piped music or any other hallmarks of shiny plastic pubs) and traditional 'Olde English'; just the sort of place you might want to take and impress friends / guests - especially maybe those from overseas wanting a 'taste' of a typical old-style English pub.

I believe it's family owned and the owners / staff were so welcoming and friendly, informative too.

We visited this quaint old fashioned pub. It serves real ale and is alongside a creek. Lovely interesting watering hole.

Not the best
Sep 2015 • Friends
Stumbled across this place quite by accident. It's a quirky little place in the middle of nowhere. I liked the decor and the nautical theme throughout, but it did need a bit of updating/cleaning; It smelt a bit stale on entering.
The bar was well stocked with fancy beers, I'm not a beer drinker, but there did seem to be a good selection and the bar staff were knowledgeable when asked.
For me the food was a big let down, the three of us ordered ham, egg and chips for nearly £10 each, which I thought was quite steep. The ham had been hacked off the bone and was dumped on the plate in chunks, I had far too much gristle for my liking, my fried egg was crispy and the yolk was solid, others may like it that way but I do not. It was disappointing to be served frozen oven chips, some of which had clearly been in the oven far too long. It was all edible enough, but not worth £9.95.
The young girls that were serving did not speak either when they brought the food or cleared away, we were not asked if everything was okay, nor were we offered desserts or coffee. Instead we had to go to the bar and then wait again for the menu board to be out up. I declined a dessert, but apparently it was better than the main.
The man that took the order seemed impatient and unfortunately had body odour.
I honestly could not wait to leave.

Nice pub, staff could have been a lot more welcoming.
We stopped off halfway through a very long, windy and cold walk. Haven't been in there for about 20 years so was keen to see what it was like. The staff didn't say a word apart from taking our drinks order, we felt they could have been a lot more welcoming especially to new faces. We will definitely keep walking next time!
