So glad we came across Drake's. Lovely little pub, does not feel like you're in Maidstone at all! Beer garden is great and gets good sun coverage with bits in the shade if you want it! And the addition of Ponga food is amazing!

Has a good selection of drinks, a little pricey I think due to the type of people it attracts ! It’s good but not that good ! Food is expensive and Bistroteque rather than pub 😔

Not a bad little pub this, like an old school old mans local with reasonable prices, serves cocktails. The food is tasty with a half decent menu and has live bands in the courtyard outside covered area. Definitely worth a pop in for a bite...More
