The Elite Pubs family is truly devastated by the events that occurred at The Dirty Habit on the 9th October.
Shortly after 20:00, a fire broke out at our 11th-century pub and emergency services were called. All staff and customers were evacuated swiftly and accounted for. Unfortunately, there has been significant damage to the pub.
We’d like to thank Kent Fire & Rescue Service for their immediate response and to all who have sent well wishes and donations – we truly appreciate your kind words and generosity.
Our contractors are in talks with our Maidstone Borough Council Conservation Officer about our next steps. We’re working towards reconstruction beginning before Christmas with a grand re-opening Winter 2023/2024.
We’ll continue to post updates here and our social media channel.
