The Juggs - with Joice and Glenn

Wednesday 10 October 2012

Hello and welcome to the first of what we hope will be the first of many submissions to the Kingston News. We would like to begin by expressing our gratitude to everyone who has frequented the pub since we took over in July: how time flies when you are having fun.
For those of you who we have not yet met we would like to introduce ourselves, we are Glenn Wisdom from Chatham, Kent, Joice Wisdom from Santos, Brazil and Rio the Black Labrador. We are also expecting our first child in early December. We met working for Disney Cruise Line aboard The Disney Wonder and have been managers for Shepherd Neame for the past 7 years most recently at The Royal Hotel, Deal, Kent.
Leaving behind a successful business and moving further away from Gillingham Football Club was a tough decision but then we visited the pub & the village and realised it was meant to be.

Our aim is to make The Juggs the hub of the local community by providing genuine warm friendly service and tasty imaginative food using fresh local produce whenever possible.
Without your support we will not succeed so we welcome any comments or suggestions you may have. We are fully aware of the challenges we face and we have some way to go but in Neil Wakefield we have a superb Head Chef and we hope you are enjoying our New Winter Menu, which we believe is a much improved offer.

Christmas Party bookings are now being taken and you can view our delicious menu on our website or pop in and pick up a copy. The pub will be open as normal on Christmas Day and we look forward to welcoming the entire village for some mulled wine and a good sing along. This Year should be a good one.

For those of you who have embraced Facebook please go to and look at our page where we will be posting our Daily Specials and keeping you up-to-date on planned events at The Juggs - the first of which will be a Quiz Night that we hope will become a weekly event. Details will be announced shortly.

We will also be offering Take Away Fish and Chips every evening.We open the pub at 10am every day for Coffee and from April 2013 we plan to serve food all day every day. There is so much we can offer at The Juggs such as Kids Parties, BBQ’s and Private Dining with Menus tailored to your specific requirements so, if you have any enquiries, please don’t hesitate to pop in and see us.

Obrigado a todos.
