Type: J D Wetherspoon
Pub History

The name of this Wetherspoon pub recalls Henry Wreight (pronounced rate), who was a 'leading light' in the development of Faversham in the 19th century.

Henry Wreight was one the town's two main benefactors. He lived and died at 60 Preston Street, just a few doors away from this pub. After his death, in 1840, his bequest was used to provide schools, the recreation ground and almshouses. He was also three times Mayor of Faversham. He is probably the strongest contender for the pub to be named after.
