Homeward Bound, Halling, Rochester

Welcome to The Homeward Bound

A traditional pub at the heart of Halling village.

A family-friendly high-street pub in Halling, near Rochester, the Homeward Bound has been a mainstay of village life for years. 

The heart of the community in every sense, it’s home to two darts teams, a cricket team, two football teams and the local golf society - and of course, it sports a whole host of delicious drinks!

Beer lovers can savour a selection of lagers and ales from Britain's oldest brewer, Shepherd Neame, while there are also wines, spirits and soft drinks aplenty.

Live sport is another key ingredient of the Homeward Bound’s appeal - with Sky Sports showing all the big matches on a large screen. There’s an eclectic mix of music to enjoy too, and lively quiz nights that always draw a crowd.

And if all you fancy is a little peace and quiet, you can enjoy a peaceful pint in the garden and patio - the perfect spot for a summer of supping!
