About us / Oare

The Three Mariners pub is a Grade II listed building dating back to the late 18th century. It is situated in the small village of Oare on the outskirts of Faversham and from Faversham town centre it is a 5 minute car ride or a pleasant 30 minute walk. Over the years alterations have been made to the pub but it still retains a unique charm, enhanced in winter by cosy log fires and in summer by a sunny terrace at the rear. From here customers can enjoy a meal or a drink while looking towards Oare Creek, which provides both an anchorage for numerous small boats and a link to the North Sea.

Oare also forms a crossroads for the Saxon Shore Way and the Swale Heritage Trail, attracting walkers from near and far. The Oare Marshes Nature Reserve, managed by the Kent Wildlife Trust, consists of some 170 acres of mudflats and marshes. It is a wildlife haven for numerous wetland birds, both as a permanent habitat and as a migratory ‘stopover’.

We currently have local artists, Hugh Ribbans, and Mary Hyde, exhibiting their work at our pub. For further information please see the links to their websites below:
