Builder and thatcher Stephen Wales opened a beer shop in a dormer-windowed cottage
on the site in 1850's.
By 1862 the building was known as the Sun Inn.
The present Sun Inn was built around 1900 by the now defunct East Kent brewery. The
Restaurant at the rear was built on the site of a 16th Century granary.
There is an unsubstantiated story of a court martial staged in the pub during the
first world war, which resulted in the convicted man being executed in the garden
at the back. The village was teeming with soldiers during the war, but as yet the
story has not been verified.
The pub is recently under new management. You will be welcomed to the Sun Inn with
a tempting range of local beers and freshly cooked food.
It is possible that a hostelry existed on the site of the present Sun Inn as long
ago as the 18th century.
