This pub shows Sky & BT Sports, has hot and cold snacks and is family friendly. To find this pub, then with away entrance behind you, walk down to the bottom of the street. Turn left and on reaching a roundabout (where the Livingstone Arms used to be and where there is a handy fish & chip shop) turn right onto Gillingham Road. The pub is up on the right.

The Factory opens at 11am and closes at approximately 8pm. Food is available on occasions with drinks offers communicated as and when confirmed.

Food and drink is available throughout the stadium with our pies courtesy of Kent supplier, Goddard’s, with the traditional burgers, hot dogs and chips also available.
