About the Early Bird...

Providing a relaxed retreat for Maidstone’s shoppers, the Early Bird is a popular pub located at the Minor Centre shopping centre of Grove Green.

It’s a place to enjoy food and drink in a friendly atmosphere, and a great spot to gather, with two free-to-hire function areas making this the perfect pub for a party.

The Early Bird boasts a distinctive design that takes the form of a traditional Kentish oasthouse. It’s equally impressive on the inside, with an attractive bricked bar and a stylish ‘upper oast' with exposed timber work.

A pool table provides hours of entertainment downstairs, or for some quiet relaxation you can head out into the garden.
