The Medway Inn is a traditional family bar and restaurant, located close to the river Medway in the beautiful North Downs area of Kent, between Maidstone and Rochester. 

The pub was built in the 1860's and catered for the thirsty cement workers and quarry men who then lived in the village. Those days are now gone and the cement works are a distant memory, but the pub remains an important focal point in the community. 

The bar offers a great selection of real ales, beers, wines and fine spirits. Adjacent to the bar is Ruby’s restaurant which opens daily for breakfast and lunch and by night, transforms into a bustling and highly acclaimed Indian restaurant. 



The Medway Inn can be found in the quaint village of Wouldham, Kent, a small village on the river Medway which is situated between the towns of Rochester and Maidstone. It is a quiet and friendly village, and though it is only a few miles from the Medway towns and Maidstone, it is protected from its urban neighbours by the rural North Downs, a range of hills that span Kent and Surrey and harbor the infamous, Pilgrims Way. 



Because of its location the pub is popular with walkers and cyclists, who use it as a convenient resting place when exploring the Kent countryside and the North Downs.



Both The Medway Inn and Ruby’s offer traditional hospitality, serving a great selection of food and drinks in a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere.  The pub offers a pool table, dart boards and large screen entertainment for major sporting events.



For those lazy, sun-kissed afternoons, when a cold beer and a chilled wine have to be drunk outside, the Medway Inn offers a comfortable, outdoor seating area and courtyard.



Open 5.30pm – 11pm 7 days a week
