Von Alten

63 High Street, Chatham, Kent

Hi, my name is Wayne Adams and I was the landlord of the pub in the early 80's. There is a ghost in the pub! The name of the pub does come from the ship Von Alten. This was a beautiful pub going back in time with really nice features like the back counter was from a tobaconists shop and the walls are the old brick and timbers over 300 years old. I was redecorating upstairs when thew plaster on the walls colapsed so stripped it to reveal this lovely feature. I had 32.5 fantastic years running this pub with all the ups & downs and made some fantastic friends. This pub used to be a gold mine when I was there as we did home cooked food and value for money. Its with love and affection that I remember the Von Alten!!! XXX
