The Shipwright’s Arms - Hollowshore

This 300 year old country pub in Faversham, is not only an independent, historic pub, it is home to our family. Having to initially close due to the Corona Virus, then to be allowed to only partially open for a few months, followed by the latest closure has put us in a precarious position.

   We are very grateful to all those who have made the effort to come out over the marsh to get takeaway beers to help support us and to those who have helped in other ways. Now, once again, we have been closed and will shortly be starting a delivery service to try and hold out until the spring.

   A number of people who have not been able to come to us for takeaways, have asked if they can help this quintessential British pub survive the next few months by donating something.

  After a lot of thought we have decided to offer people the chance to help out by making a donation through gofundme. We have not been able to trade properly since March and the latest lockdown news is not good, since we  are well off the beaten track, very much a ‘destination’ pub. The small grant available helps a bit, but we still have to pay rent, insurances and for gas and electricity etc.

  If you would like to help that would be great, but we also appreciate the many people who have contacted us to wish us well and are very grateful for their concern and moral support. The gofundme link is below. We will of course, continue with our delivery service.

  Stay safe and hopefully ‘see you on the other side’.
