High Street, Farningham, Kent, DA4 0DP 01322 860621
The Lion has been a popular spot in Farningham since the 16th Century when it was the entertainment centre of the village. Even in the 18th Century the then named Black Lyon, was the venue for all the important village meetings. Such status in the village meant that The Lion was once paid a visit by Charles Dickens whilst on a trout fishing trip.
