Is the Stile Bridge the best pub in the Maidstone area?
Certainly CAMRA think so, awarding it their 2014 pub of the year.
It has everything I want in a pub: great beer and cider, great food and lots of live music.
It sits by the River Beult at the foot of Linton hill. I live further down the river.
Round us we don’t count our kids’ ages in years, but on whether they can walk to the Stile Bridge or not. It’s a seminal moment the day they first do it.
The Stile Bridge is our local and that’s why I’m delighted they’ve got Turners Cider behind the bar now.
