Ranked #23 of 142 restaurants in Ashford
Cuisines: British, Pub
Dining options: Breakfast/Brunch, Dinner, Reservations, Delivery, Late Night
Description: In the ancient parish of Brook, under the ridge of the Brabourne downs sits a gem of an inn, The Honest Miller.This village inn, built in 1609, was for many years a meeting place for countrymen out pigeon shooting and hare coursing. It was also where the local hunt would meet, waiting on horseback to receive their mulled wine and spirits.Today, in this historic atmosphere, the attractions are a little different. Sit in the beautiful old English beer garden sipping quality real ale, or enjoy a ploughman’s lunch among the free range chickens. The beer garden is ideal for children, with a resident Shetland pony, rabbits, guinea pigs, sheep and ducks.Inside, the inn oozes charm, with an open log fire and friendly welcome. It’s a romantic spot for couples to enjoy a candlelit dinner. Walkers and cyclists are also valued customers, along with their dogs. The kitchen is the hearts of this place – you need look no further for a superior home-made meal. Melt-in-the-mouth Romney Marsh lamb shanks, slow roasted and served with leek and rosemary gravy are just one of the delights on offer. Start with roasted butternut & vegetable soup, or creamy goat’s cheese with roasted peppers. Try our rack of Pork belly ribs with hickory barbecue sauce and homemade chips or Haddock with a mature cheddar & herb crumble topping. Desserts include Italian tiramisu, with Madeira and mascarpone, apple blackberry crumble, bread and butter pudding and lemon meringue pie. There are also vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free dishes.

Popped in here for lunch on Wednesday and was really pleasantly surprised. Lovely fresh food from local farms and producers. Nice beer garden, animal petting area for kids - some very friendly chickens. If you want to try some really tasty fresh food at a reasonable price then you can't go far wrong here.

The food was lovely and the setting is beautiful. We had two young children and they loved it in the pet corner watching the rabbits and chickens. Definitely worth a visit.

We had a really nice meal here for our wedding anniversary. We were greeted on arrival and made to feel welcome straightaway. The pub and restaurant were virtually empty but it was a Sunday evening. I suspect they get more busy on their "special" nights, such as their curry, steak and fish nights which are held during the week and... More
