The Bowl, situated high above Charing on top of the North Downs in a Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), was originally built as a farmhouse in 1512, and then in1606 it became a brewhouse. It has had a long and varied history until the present licensees took charge in 2014. The current owners have managed to forge their own mark on this 16th Century Freehouse.

For those not content to just relax in front of the log fire in the huge old inglenook or play a quiet game of cards, dominoes or shut-the-box, there is an unusual hexagonal rotating pool table.
