Welcome to The Bowl Inn, Hastingleigh

We are a Free House. All of our ales are locally sourced from Kent. We are also very passionate about keeping our ale to best possible condition.
Our passion hasn’t gone unnoticed with CAMRA good beer guide recognition from 2007 to 2021. We also won Ashford, Folkestone & Romney Marsh CAMRA pub of the year 2012, 2017, 2018 & 2019, which was lovely news! We were also runners up for Ashford, Folkestone & Romney Marsh CAMRA pub of the year in 2016 and 2020 too, which again was a great accolade to receive!

Lifting of Covid-19 Restrictions

A lot has changed in the past 18 months and in order for us to operate safely, we’ve had to make a few changes too:-

THE BOWL INN –*22th July 2021*

  • Masks are optional. However we ask you to be respectful when ordering at the bar and walking inside of the pub to keep staff and customers safe.
  • Test and trace is optional. Although it isn’t a requirement, you are still advised to do it.
  • Children must be supervised at all times.
  • Pub seating is gradually getting back to normal but there are still no bar stalls to enable customers to order their drinks safely.
  • The beer garden seating is still distanced apart for your safety.
  • Food commences August 7th & 8th, and every Saturday and Sunday going forward. Booking is strongly advised.
  • Dogs are not allowed in the pub or beer garden, only at the front of the premises under supervision. Guide dogs are welcome throughout.

Please book in advance if possible. You can book via our email address info@thebowlonline.co.uk, social media or by calling 01233 750354.

Please bear with us during this unusual time,
