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 2020. 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!

New Covid 19 Procedures
