CAMRA LocAle Accredited

At the Flower Pot we are proud to boast that we offer up to nine ales, and four ciders, on tap at any one time. Our ale menu is ever-changing, but we always make sure to include our local favourites as well as beers from all across the country. We offer it, not only in pints and halves, but thirds as well, and all our ale glasses are oversized, so you will never get less than what you pay for. Takeaways are also available!

We are located ten minutes walk from Maidstone East Station and less than fifteen from Maidstone Barracks Station or the town centre. The pub itself has been open for a hundred and seventy years, and under the same management for a mere fifteen. Our split level bar features a pool table, and a stage, which is frequently used for our open-mic night and live music events. The covered garden features al lot of fairy lights and safe haven from all that.

Our kitchen is open from 6 - 10pm Wednesday to Saturday. Please see our food menu for more details. We truly love our stone-baked pizzas here, and so do our customers, but please do be aware that we are not a gastro-pub and our kitchen capacity is limited. Waiting times can be long during peak hours, so be sure to ask staff for advice, and then get an extra round in!

Every Tuesday at 8.30pm we hold our electro acoustic jam night – where spectators and musicians (both old friends and newcomers) are welcome to come and enjoy a large spectrum of music, including blues, country, folk, rock, and also on the odd occasion, poetry and stand-up comedy. Live music is also a fixture most Saturday nights in the bottom bar. To find out what’s on soon, please check out our dedicated facebook page.

If you would like to book a table in advance, please phone us on 01622 757705. Tables are saved for 15 minutes after your stated arrival time.
