Newly refurbished Kings Arms is located in the picturesque village of Boxley opposite the village green and parish church. Dating back to the reign of Richard 1 (1180-1199)
It was originally owned by the church and occupied by monks
The Kings Arms has undergone many changes since it was first built and it still retains its historic atmosphere and charm with its large real log inglenook fire place and wealth of exposed oak beams.
Cosy country dining pub with red chesterfield sofas by the fire, serving Greene King IPA, Harveys Best, London Pride and Doombar. A good choice of food from sandwiches to traditional meals. We also have piped music, and also some live bands. Children and dogs welcome, an appealing garden, pretty village, pleasant walks, open all day.
St Mary's and All Saints Church in the small village of Boxley, just North of Maidstone, has a rich heritage dating from 1100AD. The church at Boxley claims to have been sited on an old Roman road that linked Boxley with nearby Detling and being near to the now almost disappeared Boxley Abbey, the church was a welcome respite for Pilgrims on the Pilgrims Way between Canterbury and Winchester. There is also an interesting memorial to Sir Thomas Wyatt, a nobleman executed by King Richard III.
