Mermaid Inn, Bishopsbourne

Welcome to the Mermaid Inn

A traditional pub in the beautiful village of Bishopsbourne

About the Mermaid Inn

There’s nothing mythical about the Mermaid Inn - a country village pub as real, honest and traditional as they come! 

Always promising a warm, friendly welcome, it is the beating heart of local life in Bishopsbourne, a secluded village just five miles outside Canterbury

The pub was originally built in the 1860s as a tap house for local estate workers - and it’s still the perfect place for a pint today. Award-winning ales and lagers from Kent’s own Shepherd Neame brewery lead the line-up of liquid refreshment at the bar.

When the weather obliges, you can even enjoy your beer alfresco, with our south-facing garden catching the sun throughout the day.

Well-behaved dogs, kept on a lead, are very welcome.
