Originally called the "Limes Hotel" the name changed to the "Chimney Boy" some time during the 1970s.

Inside the pub has no less than three inglenook fireplaces and it is from one of these that the name was given to the pub. The largest of the three has steps inside that the chimney boys used to climb.

Incidentally, the pub seems to be decorated with a collection of potties, the type one would put under the bed at night.

Today the premises is the home for the Faversham Folk Club who gather in the upstairs function room every Wednesday.

May 2015 I heard the name has reverted back to the "Limes" again, this time without the hotel attached to the name.
