I will be adding the historical information when I find or are sent it, but this project is a very big one, and I do not know when or where the information will come from.

All emails are answered.

Kent's best pub gardens: The Brenchley, Maidstone.

The Brenchley, Maidstone town centre.

Located in the centre of the county town, Maidstone's newest pub has built up a reputation for it's busy beer garden since opening in 2013.

Formerly the Natwest and Kentish Bank building, this social hub has an extensive south-facing beer garden which proves a great spot to enjoy a pint and get some sun. Easy to find, at Maidstone's Jubilee Square, on the High Street, this pub offers good food and real beers, with four regular ales on tap, and space for two guest beers.

The architecture of the building's original features has been restored, showing the huge oak columns and panels, along with a central glass dome inside. The beer garden is largely covered, with a second bar located between two decking areas, meaning guests won't have to travel far to get the next round.

Harry's Bar, above The Brenchley on Maidstone High Street, opens tonight.

A town centre pub will finally open its rooftop venue tonight.

The Brenchley, in High Street, Maidstone, have kept detailed plans about the first floor terrace with a bar and seating under wraps for some time.

But tonight, the public will get their first glimpse inside from 7pm.

There will be a 'happy hour' at the bar between 7pm and 9pm, after which music from DJ Mogsy will play until closing time.

Opening hours will be from 7pm until 2am every Friday and Saturday night.

The launch of Harry's Bar has been a long-term ambition of The Brenchley's management, since opening their doors in November 2013.

Ade Rowswell, a senior manager at the pub said: "Ever since we took over the building, we saw potential on this floor for something new and something different."

The bar's musical playlist will be themed around funky soul and R&B music from the 1970s to the present day.

"Funky music generates a party vibe. A lot of chart music is hit or miss, some people love it or hate it.

"It's also the owners' and the management's favourite type of music, as we come from a background in nightclubs in the 80s, so it's harking back to those days."

"It's going to be a really welcoming and friendly environment that will suit any age group, so no one will feel out of place."

The Grade II listed building was built in 1927, and was previously used as a branch of NatWest bank.
