About Us

The Granville has been at the heart of the Rochester community for many years. Located on the Maidstone Road, The Granville is a two-minute walk from the High Street and a stone’s throw from the Vines, Cathedral and Castle.

The Granville has a fresh new look and a large beer garden so you can really enjoy those sunny days.

We have created a place that you can enjoy on your days off – a friendly, relaxing place where everyone is welcome.

Whether you’re looking to enjoy a pint with friends, food with the family, or to book a private event, we look forward to welcoming you to our pub.

Warren and The Granville team

The Team

We are often asked ‘What makes a great pub? ‘ Well, we’d say ‘a good landlord, a good pint, great customers, and smiley, down-to-earth staff. Our team is at the heart of everything we do. We strive to make your visit to our family pub friendly, relaxed and fun. 


Warren Taylor, Owner

I have lived in Rochester all of my life and am proud to call it my home. After being heavily involved in the local community, and a regular at The Granville while it was under the tenure of my friends and popular local landlords Nick and Miriam Tunstill, I purchased the pub in 2012. 

We are a small, local independent pub and pride ourselves on the welcome we offer, the quality of our beers, our live music calendar and home-cooked food.
