I was not really intending to do a comprehensive research into the pubs of Newington near Sittingbourne, it's far too far away from this area at present, but as there is also a "Newington near Hythe" I have decided to add information as well as photos, when I find or acquire it. Your help is appreciated.

 

Now another one closed and being used for residential purposes.
