A Very Natural History

For over 200 years, The Three Mariners has been a jewel in the Kentish Crown.

Situated in Oare (meaning marshy place in Saxon), we’re steeped in history and nature. 

With the marshes on our doorstep and wildlife reserve providing a resting place for migratory birds, Oare has always enticed walkers and nature lovers.

Since 1787, this beautiful Grade 2 listed building has welcomed walkers exploring the creek and surrounding marshes.

And we’ve always had a reputation for hospitality…

“At the Faversham County Petty Sessions, on Thursday, John Baldock, of the “Three Mariners” public-house, Oare, was summoned for keeping his house open for the sale of beer on Sunday morning, the 6th April.

The charge was clearly proved, and Mr. Baldock fined 10s. and costs, which he paid.”

-KENTISH GAZETTE 06 May 1862

While we toe the line these days, you’ll still find that warm Mariners welcome.
