Britain’s first 21st-century thatched pub

History and heritage meet modern magnificence at the Manor Farm Barn - a stunning place to enjoy fine food and drink in Southfleet.

Originally an 18th-century barn, it was lovingly restored in 2001, becoming Britain’s first 21st-century thatched pub and the winner of a CAMRA Pub Design Award.

The thatched roof is, quite literally, the crowning glory here - but it’s only part of the pub’s appeal. Inside, original oak timbers have been restored, while two spacious floors, a dramatic high ceiling and swathes of natural light make the pub a truly special place to relax.

Foodies travel from afar to sample our delicious restaurant dishes, while beer fans can savour award-winning ales and lagers from Britain’s oldest brewer, Shepherd Neame. There’s an extensive collection of wines here too - perhaps best enjoyed outside in the sun in our spacious patio garden. 

And when you really want to raise a glass to toast a big occasion, there’s the option to hire our restaurant exclusively for your group. A special setting for a special day, there’s no finer spot in Southfleet for a ‘barnstorming’ celebration.
