General description

The Sun Inn, nestled in the heart of Faversham’s conservation area, was built in the 14th century and has a wealth of character and original features, including inglenook fireplaces, oak beams and a courtyard garden. Hospitality is a long-standing tradition – today’s licensees can trace the names of their predecessors all the way back to 1608 – and visitors can soak up the atmosphere while enjoying traditional Kentish fare and comfortable accommodation. A short stroll from the Shepherd Neame brewery, the Sun Inn serves distinctive Kentish cask ales in peak condition. There is also a good choice of food to suit all tastes, to be enjoyed in the bar, the courtyard garden or the newly-refurbished restaurant. With eight comfortable bedrooms, the Sun Inn makes the perfect base to explore Faversham, Canterbury and the Kent coast or is an entertaining stop-off for travellers en route to the Dover ferry terminals.
