Originally known as the "White Horse" I believe that closed circa 2016 but has been converted into a venue that will be opening in the winter of 2022 known as the "Wishful Thinker."

At the time of writing this in April they say the building is undergoing a 2.5 million refurbishment and extension to contain 18 bedrooms, an impressive large dining room, internal bar terrace overlooking the dining room and also a stage.

It will be the group’s largest and boast a large dining room, an indoor bar terrace and a stage which will host “the ultimate live experiences”.

The pub will take over from the "White Horse." Parts of the building date back as far as 1778.

A spokesman for the chain said: “The Wishful Thinker is sure to live up to expectations and be an outstanding new addition to the Lenham community as well as Elite Pubs.

“The Wishful Thinker, opening winter of 2022, is set to be the perfect cosy pub to enjoy a glass of wine in front of the fire and indulge in your favourite pub food just in time for Christmas.

“Whether you’re local or just passing through, a very warm welcome awaits.”
