A Westwood pub will open with a new name and new landlords tonight

The Falcon Inn opens on Friday

The former Grog Wench pub at Westwood will open with a new name and new landlords tonight (July 7).

The Margate Road pub has been renamed The Falcon Inn and will be run by businessman Louis Mayhew, who will become one of the country’s youngest pub landlords.

The 24-year-old will take the helm with girlfriend Deja Brown, 19, and his mum taking on the cooking.

Louis, from Palm Bay, is already the co-director of Falcon Electrical & Security Ltd and says he hopes his colleagues and staff will get involved in the new venture.

Falcon customers will also get a bonus with plans to offer a discount for food and drinks at the bar.


Work has taken place over the last week to revamp the garden, car park, bar and exterior lighting.

Louis said: “It’s quite a big decision but we are ready.”

Plans are underway to create a new website.

The opening takes place from 7pm on Friday and will include live music, a barbecue and bouncy castle.

The Falcon Inn is at 460 Margate Road, Broadstairs (Westwood).
