UPDATE ON RE-OPENING
Great night last night (30th July) as the Sawyers threw open its doors for the first time under new ownership.
Steve and Denise have done a fantastic job with the new look interior and it was great to see new faces as well as some more familiar ones! Denise, Linda and Chelsea worked really hard behind the bar and took everything in their stride, especially working without the use of a till!
Come in soon and have a look and enjoy a real country pub atmosphere where everyone is made to feel welcome!
Initially only drinks are being served but we will be offering food when all the required licences are in place.
The new opening times are:-
Monday 2.30 to 10pm
Tuesday 2.30 to 10pm
Thursday 2.30 to 10pm
Friday 2pm to 11pm
Saturday 12 noon to 11pm
Sunday 12 noon to 10.30pm
Initially the opening will be for drinks only. When food licences are acquired there may be earlier opening times.
There seems to be an inability of BT to assign the old number because it is currently not being used!! Therefore the pub has a new number and it is live:-
Welcome to the new owners of The Two Sawyers
Steve and Denise Francis have just taken over the pub and will be opening it as a going concern some time in June. The reason for this is that the garden will be out of action whilst they carry out extensive refurbishments to the pub, therefore it will only be available once gatherings inside are allowed.
Steve and Denise have been married for almost 43 years. They have 4 children and 9 grandchildren. They have lived at their previous address in Hawkinge for 34 years so it has been a big upheaval to move to Woolage Green. However, all the family is supportive of the venture and keen to help.
Steve is a retired carpenter, refurbishing shops and windmills are among his talents. Both were seeking fresh challenges when their daughter Helen spotted the advert for the pub. Once they had visited they fell in love with both the pub and the area. They are keeping with the pub tradition of dog ownership, having a 1 year old Doberman called Poppy, who also seems to have fallen in love with the area.
Their plans for the pub include brand new kitchen equipment, a menu which includes weekly specials, a professional coffee machine and a bike rack for cyclists. They are also looking at a horse trough for the many horses which pass by.
TThe Two Sawyers is a traditional country pub set in a tiny hamlet between Canterbury and Dover, Kent. The pub is a free house and not tied to a particular brewer.
The Two Sawyers is over 300 years old and nestles in the beautiful rural hamlet of Woolage Green. Despite being rural the pub is only 5 minutes from the main A2 and is only 10 minutes drive from both Canterbury and Dover.
Real ales are served and traditional pub games are played, such as darts, pool and bar billiards. There are pub teams for each of these.
The restaurant serves food every day of the week and the prestigious 5 star certificate was recently awarded by Canterbury City Council.
If you are looking for a country pub then this is for you. Whether you drive, walk or cycle. Woolage Green is on several walking and cycling routes.
