About Us

Whether you are looking for a quality dining experience or great pub food and drink, you will be sure to find what you want at the Waggon at Hale.

Tucked in the small hamlet of Hale, you will find the warm welcome of the Waggon at Hale Public House and Restaurant, a traditional country pub independently run by Emma Pearson and her team.

With so many good quality Kent Breweries on our doorstep, it would be silly for us not to have these ales on our bar, so we are proud to offer at least one Kent Ale which can be enjoyed in our relaxed friendly atmosphere.

The earliest records show that the Waggon at Hale was in business in 1855, possibly earlier after being a coach house for many years. Inside you will find an open fire and a traditional style pub, plus a separate dining area serving fine home-cooked quality food. The Waggon at Hale also has a large beer garden where you can enjoy your food and drink, with a play area for the children to enjoy as well as our small animal farm.
