Good food, freshly cooked and ready in ample time. Friendly staff. You also get a discount if you collect you food which is good, seeing as I live near by

The food was lovely, staff were friendly and it had a nice relaxed atmosphere. We've also had a few takeaways which are just as good.

Not yet had the Indian food but if the Sunday lunch is anything to go by then I would highly recommend. Small restaurant so probably best to book in advance but a phone call is easy, very good value and I would have no issues...More

The Medway Inn is a traditional family bar and restaurant, located close to the river Medway in the beautiful North Downs area of Kent, between Maidstone and Rochester. The pub was built in the 1860's and catered for the thirsty cement workers and quarry men who then lived in the village. Those days are now gone and the cement works are a distant memory, but the pub remains an important focal point in the community. The bar offers a great selection of real ales, beers, wines and fine spirits. Adjacent to the bar is Ruby's restaurant which opens daily for breakfast and lunch and by night, transforms into a bustling and highly acclaimed Indian restaurant. WOULDHAM VILLAGE The Medway Inn can be found in the quaint village of Wouldham, Kent, a small village on the river Medway which is situated between the towns of Rochester and Maidstone. It is a quiet and friendly village, and though it is only a few miles from the Medway towns and Maidstone, it is protected from its urban neighbours by the rural North Downs, a range of hills that span Kent and Surrey and harbor the infamous, Pilgrims Way. NORTH DOWNS Because of its location the pub is popular with walkers and cyclists, who use it as a convenient resting place when exploring the Kent countryside and the North Downs. PUB HOSPITALITY Both The Medway Inn and Ruby's offer traditional hospitality, serving a great selection of food and drinks in a comfortable, relaxing atmosphere. The pub offers a pool table, dart boards and large screen entertainment for major sporting events. OUTDOOR SEATING For those lazy, sun-kissed afternoons, when a cold beer and a chilled wine have to be drunk outside, the Medway Inn offers a comfortable, outdoor seating area and courtyard. RUBY'S INDIAN BRASSERIE Open 5.30pm - 11pm 7 days a week Welcome to Ruby's Tandoori and Indian Brasserie, a truly amazing eating experience. Inspired by the fantastic food and rich culture of the Indian and Bengali regions, we've been serving our guests our unique, freshly cooked dishes for over a decade. From the humble beginnings of The Viceroy at The Toastmasters Inn, to our brand new restaurant and name, Ruby's, here at The Medway inn. We offer a diverse range of delicious food and guarantee there's something for everyone. Our extensive menu has savoury, hot and sweet dishes from around the middle and Far East. We very much look forward to seeing you. PARTY BOOKINGS There is always a time for celebration, all you have to do is find the venue. We are able to cater for parties in style and comfort in either the bar or restaurant. Avoid disappointment and book in advance to make the celebration count, and relax in a friendly and welcoming environment with good food and excellent customer service. FAMILY & FRIENDS We all have family and friends and we all eat. Enjoying them together is part of life, picking a great restaurant is getting even easier. With our history, you can't make a bad choice here. So choose a restaurant that is slightly off the beaten track, surprising your friends and family with your knowledge of Kent and Indian food.
