Location and contact

The Phoenix Tavern is situated in a splendid building with oak frame and beams. Originally a medieval hall house dating from about 1330. The hall was the main bar area and part of the jettied ends was in the Club Room. Though not visible from the ground floor, it has arched tie-beams and two large curved brackets to the posts forming a pointed arch, with a crown post, collar purlin and brackets at either end. The inglenook fireplaces would have been put in much later, in the 1600s, and would have given the residents a vastly improved lifestyle – free of smoke and with better cooking. Though additions have been made to the Building, it offers an historic, traditional feel. The Bar area is divided

Popped in on the way home from Canterbury, just the two of us, as we fancied a chilled out Sunday pub dinner. We both had the roast beef and it was delicious. Meat and everything else cooked to perfection. My Shiraz was great too. Lovely...More

Really disappointing lunch raw squid starter and undercooked pork roast. No apology from staff only one vegetarian option which was not what was advertised online and no kids menu. A real shame as the pub itself is lovely the food just lets it down.

We called in for a nightcap after going for dinner at the Sportsman in Seasalter and on our way back to our Faversham hotel. We were probably a bit overdressed for the pub and felt the centre of unwelcome critical attention and obvious comment from...More
