Welcome to the Jolly Drayman

We're a friendly, traditional country pub, hotel and restaurant (coming soon) located in the heart of Gravesend in Kent and host to one of the last surviving Daddlums (Kentish Skittles) teams in the area.

Known by locals as the "Coke Oven" and previously the Druid's Head from 1843 - 1879, the Drayman is a comfortable and traditional ale house, steeped in 150 years of history and beloved by generations of locals and visitors.

Come and enjoy a quality pint in our low ceilinged, wooden beamed gem of a pub, where our friendly staff will welcome you to enjoy our bar area or in our garden on one of our live music weekends. Other facilities include our hotel and function venue available for hire.

We look forward to seeing you.
