Welcome to The Cellars Alehouse!

We’ve reopened post lockdown on a limited opening schedule! We’re taking bookings for tables of up to 6, please note booking is advised, due to reduced capacity. if we don’t have room to seat you, we will not be able to let you in. please email thecellarsalehouse@gmail.com to reserve a table. We look forward to seeing you!

The Cellars Alehouse is Maidstone’s micropub dedicated to the enjoyment of cellar-kept real ale and real ciders dispensed straight from the cask in an environment that promotes conversation and general social interaction with other members of the human race. You may enter a stranger but you will certainly leave as a friend.

Who’er has travelled life’s dull round
Where’er his stages may have been
May sigh to think he still has found
His warmest welcome at an inn.

(William Shenstone 1714-1763)

Micropubs are characterised not just by what they do – great real ale straight from the cask – but also by what they don’t do. We are no exception, so before you travel a long way, here is a list of what we don’t do!

What We Don’t Do:

  • Alcopops and Shots
  • TV
  • Fruit Machines
  • Jukebox or background music
  • Pool or darts
  • Mobile Phones
  • Very Expensive Nouvelle Cuisine
  • and not a trace of Farrow & Ball paint!


Disabled: Unfortunately, the stairs down to The Cellars are quite steep and narrow and are therefore unsuitable for wheelchair-disabled customers. Ambulant-disabled customers are very welcome if they feel able to tackle the stairs – there is an ambulant-disabled toilet on site.

Dogs: We are dog-friendly provided that your dog is well behaved, kept on a lead and doesn’t bark, especially in the presence of other dogs.

Credit Cards

We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express cards. Please bear in mind that cash is still king and if you are able to pay in cash it reduces our costs and helps to keep our prices down.
