The Swan Maidstone

Welcome to The Swan, Maidstone

A traditional pub with a warm welcome for all

Gary and Claire Banfield have recently taken over at The Swan and look forward to welcoming you in 2017.

The Swan is a small traditional pub with a friendly bunch of customers who make everyone feel welcome. Located approximately 5 minutes walk from Maidstone East train station and 10 minutes walk from Maidstone United's Gallagher Stadium it's a fantastic little pub with lots going on.

We serve Shepherd Neame cask ales and we are Cask Marque accredited, So you can be sure of a good pint here. We also serve a good selection of lagers, cider and Guinness along with a range of spirits and single malts. Tea and coffee is always available.

We are now serving food from 12 noon to 7pm Wednesday to Saturday. A range of Baguettes, Jacket potatoes and hot meals are available

Inside, the pub is very welcoming with a log burner. Outside, there's an enclosed garden which is heated during the winter months.

Since taking over in Mid-December we have introduced a monthly charity quiz which is held on the last Monday of the month. We have regular entertainment on Saturday evenings, Karaoke on the first and third Saturday and Live Music most other weeks. An Open Mic night is also held on the second and fourth Thursday of the month, everyone is welcome whether you'd like to join in or just enjoy the wide variety of musical acts. We also have BT Sports so will show all the live European Football and some Premier League matches.

So come over and see us today!
