The Swan Maidstone

Welcome to The Swan, Maidstone

A much-loved Maidstone local, the Swan offers a warm welcome to all

A traditional community pub in Kent’s county town, the Swan Inn provides homely hospitality and a hive of local entertainment just minutes from Maidstone town centre.

The Swan is a short stroll from Maidstone East station and sits on the east border of HM Prison Maidstone. The pub is also popular with football fans - Maidstone United's Gallagher Stadium is an 8-minute walk from the pub, making it the perfect place for a pre-match pint!

The pub is home to a regular pub quiz, great music (from disco and karaoke to live bands and open mic nights), and lashings of live sport - with all the action from Sky Sports and BT Sport.

Of course, for many, the star attraction here is the beer. 

Beautiful Kentish ales from Faversham’s Shepherd Neame line the bar, there’s also a good selection of lager, cider and Guinness, along with a range of spirits and single malts - or you can enjoy the simple pleasure of tea and coffee throughout the day. 

Gary and Claire Banfield look forward to welcoming you to the Swan.
